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.

Genevieve and the rest of Atlys are amazing to work with. They are extremely professional and give 110% in their performance. The passion and love shows in the music they deliver. I am completely blown away. My track would not have been the same without! Genevieve and the rest of the string quartet brought my track to the next level. I will definitely be working with them again.
Emotional playing, beautiful tone, quick turnaround, clear communication, and high quality stems. It was an absolute pleasure working with Genevieve and we look forward to working with her again very soon!
Yet another amazing experience working with Genevieve! The quality of the recordings speaks for itself. I'll be back once again when I need more strings recorded
It was a pleasure working with Genevieve! Even though my song is quite simple and under the umbrella of EDM they absolutely knocked it out of the park! I'll be coming back for more strings from them in the future!
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!
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!
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!
Super pro, super fast. It was a real pleasure. Thanks again ! I will repeat the experience.
Genevieve is a highly-skilled and diverse cellist who I thoroughly enjoy working with! For our latest collaboration, I asked Genevieve to record a difficult part with a specific tone in mind. She went out of her way to try different approaches until I was satisfied. At the end, I received a beautiful cello recording that didn’t need any post-production editing. I didn’t think it would be possible to achieve this, but Genevieve found a way! Amazing!
Genevieve is an exceptionally talented cellist who can truly do it all. Her warm tone, her intuitive feel, and her technical acumen combine to make her a powerhouse cellist. I've asked Genevieve to record several cello parts over nearly a handful of tracks and she still hasn't had to record a second take! On top of her perfect recordings, she also has very fast turnaround times. I really can't recommend Genevieve strongly enough!
Genevieve is a skilled cellist who combines technical acumen with emotion in her playing. The warm quality of her recordings took my track to another level. Highly recommended for anyone looking to add a beautiful cello sound to your track!
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!
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.
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!
Genevieve's cello work on a song was outstanding! Beautiful work, professional!
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!
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!
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!
