Cello

Cellist Lydia Munchinsky completed her ARCT in performance for both piano and cello before coming to Toronto in 2000 to study cello with Simon Fryer and piano with Peter Longworth at The Glenn Gould School of Music. At the ages of 10 and 12 she performed at the International Suzuki Conventions in Australia and Korea, and spent 3 months as an exchange student in France when she was 16. When she was 19, Lydia traveled across Europe with her cello and spent 3 months in Switzerland at the International Christian Study and Philosophy Centre l’Abri. Since completing the Performance Diploma Program, Lydia’s eclectic performance experience has included playing for Stage West and Theatre Aquarius, the Array Ensemble, Sarah Slean, the Venuti String Quartet and chamber folk group Ozere. Lydia also toured extensively with Quartetto Gelato, usually with her baby daughter in tow, and is featured on their most recent recording. She has premiered solo cello and chamber music works by a number of Toronto and Austrian composers and gives recitals regularly, some of which have been recorded by CBC and CIUT radio. Lydia taught for two years with Sistema Toronto in Parkdale and currently teaches at the Toronto School for Strings. She now has two children, Arya (4) and William (2).
