bio

Cellist Gabriel Cabezas has appeared as soloist with America’s finest orchestras, including those of Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Houston, Pittsburgh and Nashville. He is also a member of the New York sextet yMusic, hailed by NPR’s Fred Child as “one of the groups that has really helped to shape the future of classical music”.  Their virtuosic execution and unique configuration (string trio, flute, clarinet, and trumpet) has attracted the attention of high profile collaborators - from Dirty Projectors to Paul Simon - and more recently inspired an expanding repertoire of original works by some of today’s foremost composers.  He is also the co-founder of Duende, a new music and contemporary dance collective which focuses on the interaction between performers and dancers in the live realization of new scores. Recently, Gabriel received the 2016 Sphinx Medal of Excellence, a career grant awarded to emerging classical artists of color, who, early in their professional career, demonstrate artistic excellence, outstanding work ethic, a spirit of determination, and ongoing commitment to leadership. An enthusiastic chamber musician as well as soloist, Gabriel has performed and toured with artists ranging from bassist Edgar Meyer to songwriter Gabriel Kahane to the musicians of the Marlboro Festival. Cabezas studied at the Curtis Institute of Music under Carter Brey.
