Dominic Blanchard

Cello - Collin-Mezin 'Rothermere'

Dominic is a graduate of Kings College London, presently studying for a Masters at the RCM with Jakob Kullberg. He says: ‘in making the transition to a professional career, the next 5 years will present challenges and opportunities, including solo and chamber performances and orchestral auditions. With the loan of the Collin-Mezin cello I can approach the next steps in my career with greater confidence and adapt my playing beyond the limitations of my current instrument. I relish the opportunity to play for the Trust in collaborations and performances and would be proud to represent Cherubim in solo performances.’

Dominic has played in many student orchestras and is cofounder of Kaleidoscope Ensemble. This year he is performing the Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto with the Lavenham Sinfonia.
