Clea has been playing the cello since the age of six. She currently works in Edinburgh as a free-lance cellist playing with orchestras such as the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. She also works as a community musician around Scotland and in the Balkans using music as a tool for communication, expression and creativity for those with additional needs.

In the last couple of years she has set up ‘Recitals for Wrigglers’ with a violinist colleague – a set of short interactive and educational concerts for pre-school children.Back Button3
