Barbara Geller

Viola

Barbara Geller - ViolaBarbara was awarded a scholarship at St. Mary’s Music School in Edinburgh aged 11, studying violin with Rosemary Ellison and piano with Richard Beauchamp, as well as masterclasses with many eminent visiting performers.

A member of the National Children’s and Youth Orchestras of Scotland from age 8, she was subsequently invited to join Camerata Scotland leading to performances in many renowned concert halls throughout Britain and Europe.

Currently studying Medicine at the University of Dundee, Barbara has enjoyed a growing involvement in the area’s musical scene. She has been principal violinist with Dundee Symphony Orchestra, the University Symphony Orchestra (with whom she performed as soloist in Saint-Saen’s Havanaise), the Angus Chamber Orchestra, Fife and Broughty Ferry Opera Orchestras, and the European Medical Student Orchestra.

Her continuing commitment to chamber music has led to trio and sonata performances in Dundee and St Andrews, and regular appearances with groups such as St Andrews’ Heisenberg Ensemble, the Manchester-based Murray Ensemble, and as guest violinist with the Laird quartet.

Barbara is now a firm fixture in the Apollo line-up, and supplies our other players with endless sandwiches and cakes from her bottomless lunchbox!
