A former member of the RTE National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, American cellist Katie Tertell enjoys a rich and varied experience as a freelance artist in the UK, Europe and the United States. In addition to working with leading symphony and chamber orchestras, Katie also performs regularly in chamber music series and festivals internationally. Her ensemble, Semibreve, received critical acclaim for its recent outdoor rural tour of the North East of England (Autumn 2020) which served communities left isolated and vulnerable by the pandemic. Katie is a current recipient of an Exceptional Talent visa (Exceptional Promise) awarded by the Arts Council and teaches cello at Durham University.
