Kate Sawbridge - Cellist


Kate studied at the Royal College of Music with Amanda Truelove and Melissa Phelps, also spending 6 months at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Dmitri Ferschtman as an Erasmus exchange scholar. She moved to Dusseldorf for postgraduate study with Johannes Goritzki, and settled in Nordrhein-Westfalen, taking up chamber orchestra positions with the Folkwang Kammerorchester Essen and Klassische Philharmonie Bonn, while still returning to London to perform with the Bowen Quartet, of which she was a founder member.

Now a record executive with Universal Music Classics & Jazz, Kate still enjoys performing in her spare time, in recital and chamber music, including with her close friend Cara Berridge as the Digby Cello Duo.
