Autumn Concert - Rosalie Curlett (Cello)
Rosalie began her studies at The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, graduating with a first-class honours degree. After several years of freelancing, Rosalie moved to Belfast in February 2018 having been awarded a full-time position with the Ulster Orchestra.
Rosalie has performed regularly with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Manchester Camerata and the Halle Orchestra. She has been awarded trials for No.3 Assistant Principal Cello and No.4 Cello with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, as well as being awarded trials for several positions within the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. She has been fortunate enough to perform all over the world in countries such as Germany, Poland, Spain and China to name a few, and has recorded under Chandos and Deutsche Grammophon record labels.
Rosalie is a passionate teacher - she hold several teaching positions across Belfast. She is a cello tutor for the National Children's Orchestra of Great Britain and The Benedetti Foundation and a former string sectional coach at the prestigious Chetham's School of Music. She now works closely with the education and outreach work of the Ulster Orchestra.
Rosalie plays on a Kai-Thomas Roth cello and would like to thank the Studio Symphony Orchestra for this opportunity to perform Saint-Saens' Cello Concerto No.1 - one of her favourite concertos.
