A bit about our cellist...

Described by The Strad as a player of ‘authority, passion with an unerring sense of direction, full of colour and underpinned by a clear musical intelligence‘, Welsh cellist Thomas Carroll launched his career when he won both Young Concert Artists Trust and YCA, New York, performing in many major venues across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and America.  He has appeared as concerto soloist with the LSO, BBC Orchestras and LPO as well as orchestras such as the Vienna Chamber, Melbourne Symphony and Bayerischer Rundfunk.  Much in demand as a chamber musician, Thomas is a regular guest at numerous International Festivals.


His recordings include Michael Berkeley’s String Quintet with the Chilingirian Quartet for Chandos and a critically acclaimed recital disc on the Orchid Classics Label.


As well as his work on cello, Thomas is also much in demand as a conductor, and was recently appointed Chief Conductor of the Orpheus Sinfonia.


Thomas is currently a Professor at the Royal College of Music and the Yehudi Menuhin School.
