Oliver Weston (cello) was selected as an American fellow in 2017.
Beginning his musical journey in rural North Carolina, Oliver Weston has gone on to complete a master’s degree in the Historical Performance program at Juilliard, studying baroque cello with Phoebe Carrai and viola da gamba with Sarah Cunningham. As a member of Juilliard415, he has worked alongside such distinguished musicians as William Christie, Laurence Cummings, Jordi Savall, John Elliot Gardiner, Masaaki Suzuki, Robert Levin, Nicholas McGegan, Richard Egarr, Monica Huggett, Rachel Podger, and Robert Mealy, performing throughout North and South America and Western Europe.
Weston currently resides in New York City, fixated on exploring J.S. Bach’s obbligato cantatas and the early classical string quartet repertoire. During summer 2017, he traveled to China to perform with Shanghai Camerata and join Juilliard415 for a three-week tour of New Zealand.
