Richard Vaudrey

Adjunct Instructor of Music
Applied Cello / Chamber Music

Australian cellist Richard Vaudrey is quickly becoming a notable force in the new breed of string players, classically trained and proficient across a multitude of genres. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Richard was a scholarship holder at The Australian National Academy of Music before heading to the United States, where he completed doctoral study in classical cello performance and contemporary improvisation at SUNY Stony Brook under Colin Carr and Ray Anderson whilst acting as Teaching Assistant to the Emerson String Quartet. Richard has had a prolific background in chamber music and performs regularly both as a soloist and collaborator across a multitude of genres including classical, new music, jazz folk and pop in venues including Carnegie hall, 92Y Tribecca, the Stone, Alice Tully Hall and the Harvey Theatre, BAM. Richard is currently working on a project for a 2013/2014 tour of his own compositions for cello, voice and electronics. The show also incorporates transcriptions and studies of the late Arthur Russell. Richard also plays with Numinous, the ensemble of Joe C Phillips Jnr and indie group All Boy All Girl. Richard currently resides in Brooklyn, and plays "The Beleura Cello" - a 1791 William Forster cello generously loaned by the Tallis Foundation.
