Kate Haynes

 Kate Haynes, 'cello

Kate Haynes studied modern cello with Laurence Lesser at the New England Conservatory and baroque cello with Jaap ter Linden at the Royal Dutch Conservatory (Den Haag), after completing a bachelor's degree in Scandinavian studies at Harvard College. She has appeared at festivals throughout North America and Europe with baroque ensembles such as Arion, Tafelmusik, B'Rock, Apollo's Fire, Aradia, Clarion, Masques, and the Theatre of Early Music, and recordings of her continuo playing can be heard on ATMA,, and Deutsche Grammophon. In 2011, she began a six-year cycle of the complete Bach cello suites for the Toronto Music Garden series, to which she will join a newly commissioned work by Christopher Hossfeld this year, as a companion piece to the 3rd Suite. As well as being an active baroque cellist, Kate has a special passion for classical and romantic performance practice, which she has explored as both recitalist and chamber musician. She is currently pursuing a PhD in 19th-century performance practice under Clive Brown at the University of Leeds. This is Kate’s third appearance on our series.
