Emotional power, sparkling technique, and a burnished tone are the qualities that have made Benjamin Myers an audience favorite. The New Yorker magazine said of a concert with the Hartt Symphony in Alice Tully Hall, "The best soloist was the first cello, Benjamin Myers, who added a romantic line to the duet."
After winning the Emerson String Quartet Competition at the age of 19, Myers appeared as soloist or chamber musician in major halls in America, Europe, and Asia including Carnegie Hall. Myers is also a founding member of the nationally acclaimed Gemini Piano Trio.
Benjamin Myers is the first person ever to earn a doctoral degree in cello performance from the New England Conservatory where he also earned his master's degree. He earned a bachelor's degree (summa cum laude) from the Hartt School of Music. He has studied with David Finckel, David Wells, and Colin Carr, and had master classes with Steven Doane and Yo-Yo Ma. Myers has also appeared as principal cello of many orchestras, including the Concert Artists of Baltimore, and the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra.
Dr. Myers is a Professor of Music at HCC where he has taught for twenty years. Visit his website at www.benjaminmyers.net.
