What to Expect
Lauren will dress professionally in all black and will provide her own music stand (if necessary). She is familiar with and is comfortable performing anything from simple etudes to more complicated pieces such as Bach's six suites for cello. She specializes in classical and romantic music but has worked on contemporary pieces as well, and is happy to perform whatever you ask for.
Lauren has been playing the cello for 11 years, and is the current principal cellist in the American University Symphony Orchestra. She's also played with the American University Chamber Ensemble. She studied with resident Pittsburgh professional Bill Lockard for 6 years. In 2015, she performed a three-legged tour with the Pittsburgh Youth Philharmonic in Europe. She's played at venues such as St. George's Church, the Westerkerk, Katzen Arts Center, and PPG Place. Her most recent performance was for an event hosted by Rep. Stephen Womack at the U.S. Capitol Building.
