Rebecca Gilliver is Principal cellist of the London Symphony Orchestra. She originally joined the LSO in 2001 as Co-Principal but in 2009 decided she had had enough of turning pages! Early success in national and international competitions led to critically acclaimed debut recitals at the Wigmore Hall in London and Carnegie Hall, New York. She has appeared as a soloist with the Halle and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and, as a keen chamber musician, she has worked regularly with the renowned Nash Ensemble of London. Rebecca has played guest principal with orchestras around the world, including the Philharmonia, New Sinfonietta Amsterdam and the World Orchestra for Peace.
