I am a professional cellist, skilled in solo, chamber, and orchestral settings. Well-versed in many styles of playing, I am able to record for cello, multi-track cello section, or include my professional string quartet, ATLYS. I have a team of highly skilled string arrangers to help write the best string parts for your music, too.

I received my Bachelors of Music from the Cleveland Institute of Music and my Masters in Music from Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music.

My playing has taken me to some of the top ranking music festivals throughout the world and have led me to perform with the New York Philharmonic.

I currently travel and perform with ATLYS string quartet who represented Lincoln Center in New York City. We travel around the world playing crossover music - arrangements of pop, jazz, folk, traditional, rock, indie, alternative, rap, but always return to the forever-beautiful classical quartets, too. We have lots of experience playing with singer-songwriters and other bands, as well.

Working with ATLYS, I have learned extended techniques to play on the cello like chopping, which sounds great for adding rhythm and intricate beats in the music, so let me know if that is something you're interested in.

  1. Review by Peter Wagner

    Genevieve was wonderful to work with. She is an excellent cellist, very professional, prompt, and friendly. She recorded the cello parts for some string arrangements I wrote for my album, and her sister Sabrina recorded the violin parts. They executed the parts perfectly and with great musical taste. I highly recommend them both!

  2. Review by Yoshi M.

    Genevieve and ATLYS provided a beautiful string arrangement on my song. I'm so happy with what the final product and I would definitely work with them again!

  3. Review by Julian S.

    Genevieve is a wonderful musician and great communicator. The quartet recordings were executed individually, which gives great control over the material in the mix. I can highly recommend Genevieve and her team!

  4. Review by Thierry C.

    Super pro, super fast. It was a real pleasure. Thanks again ! I will repeat the experience.

  5. Review by Andrew Vogt

    Genevieve is an incredible cellist and plays with so much emotion! Genevieve and her quartet knock every arrangement out of the park! Musically speaking, her attention to detail, intonation, timing and feeling are par to none. Business-wise, she is incredibly punctual and very easy to work with.

    If you are looking for solo cello for your song, she is the right person for the job. If you are looking for a string section for your song, she is ALSO the right person for the job! (and for a fraction of the price of a union quartet) Couldn't recommend her any higher!

  6. Review by Travis Puntarelli

    Genevieve is a master cellist. Fun to work with, exceptionally talented, and calm in the face of danger (even sharks!). I have had the great pleasure of working with her and the other women in her quartet, Atlys, a number of times. She can play the great dynamics from the whispering of earth-ferns to the thrumming pulse of the greatest radio hits. She can make pop music sound classical, and vise versa! Fast and efficient. Takes direction easily. Can spice up a dull mix. Total pro.

  7. Review by Belzifer

    Genevieve is definitely the most talented cellist out there.

    She did an amazing performance on my piano piece and was very fast for the recordings. Beautiful and clean quality, I’m very satisfied by her work. Don’t hesitate one second, she’s the cellist you’re looking for!

  8. Review by John C.

    Genevieve's cello work on a song was outstanding! Beautiful work, professional!

  9. Review by Rita

    Such a pure joy to work with Gen! One of the most beautiful and technically proficient cello players I know-- she truly never misses a note. No matter the genre or difficulty, Gen is always up for the task with genuine excitement and determination. Always a very fast turnaround and an effortless instinct for executing musical ideas. Will always love working with Gen, simply one of the best!

  10. Review by Sabrina Tabby

    Genevieve has the sound of an angel -- truly the fullest, warmest cello sound that we all need in our lives! She also has rock-solid rhythm and can groove and chop with the funkiest of them. TOP NOTCH! Her range is infinite--will hire again and again!

  11. Review by Jinty McTavish

    Gen's musicality and incredible sound will take your music to the next level. She can play anything you throw at her and make it work. She puts hard work and thought into each recording...even for simple ones. Can't recommend her enough!
