Desiree Abbey is among the most constant virtuosos on the MCO’s stage

Beaming with rare talent and a warm presence Desiree Abbey has regularly appeared as our principal cellist for many years. Despite her approachability, she’s a player with an impressive pedigree: she holds a Master of Music from the New School, has performed at Carnegie Hall, toured Europe, and appeared as a soloist across North America.  It’s in that role that the indispensable Desi appears at this concert under the baton of  Jean-Marie Zeitouni  one of Canada’s brightest conducting talents. Desi will premiere a cello concerto written for her by the Jamaican Canadian composer Ted Runcie. The impressive McGill grad has a growing, eclectic body of work.
