Jay Campbell

Cello | Orchestra

Currently an undergraduate student at The Juilliard School studying with Fred Sherry, Jay Campbell has been praised by The New York Times for having “engagingly conveyed every nuance” and as “terrific”. His wide spectrum of repertoire and eclectic musical interests have led to performances around the United States and Europe.

Mr. Campbell frequently performs with groups such as Afiara and Maia string quartets, Argento Chamber Ensemble, Da Capo Chamber Players, Second Instrumental Unit, and AXIOM. He has collaborated with musicians and composers, ranging from Magnus Lindberg and John Adams to members of Radiohead and Einstürzende Neubauten.

As a soloist, Mr. Campbell has appeared with the festival orchestras of Aspen and the Lucerne Academy, the Juilliard Orchestra, and, recently performed, Pierre Boulez’s cello concertino Messagesquisse under the guidance of the composer for performance and lecture in Switzerland.
