Nathaniel Taylor began studying cello at age ten. He has served as principal cellist and assistant principal cellist for the Boston Conservatory Orchestra. He has appeared as soloist with the Hemenway Strings, a conductorless ensemble led by internationally acclaimed violinist Lynn Chang.

An active chamber musician, Nathaniel has played in an array of prestigious venues. After winning the 2016-2017 Boston Conservatory Concerto Competition, Nathaniel made his solo debut with the Boston Conservatory. He was also awarded the Grand Prize at the 2016 MA-ASTA Masters Competition and was accepted into the Tanglewood Music Center as a Tanglewood Fellow for the 2017 season.

As a biracial performer navigating in the world of Western European classical traditions, Nathaniel has struggled through discrimination & gaslighting, and undergone a professional journey of personal empowerment. “I have learned the concept of self-love, not depending on others for happiness, and finding that happiness within myself...I have stepped into my power not only as a cellist, but also as a mentor, teacher, guide, and healer.”

Nathaniel’s concert will open with a recorded performance by Musica Franklin students.

Se proporcionará traducción simultánea al español.
