Praised for her “total involvement with the inner life of the lowest voice (New York Concert Review Inc.), cellist Madeleine Bouissou has a vision to redefine the purpose of performing on classical instruments among her peers and pupils. Her most recent performances have included a world premiere performance of Varsha for solo cello by Reena Esmail on baroque cello and performances as an apprentice in the Valley of the Moon Music Festival in Sonoma Valley, CA. She went to Juilliard Pre-College and then continued at The Juilliard School where she completed her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree as a full scholarship student in Historical Performance. Her interest in historically-informed performance has inspired her to approach all music as if it were heard for the first time. She sheds this light onto her students, as her priority is to help them find their own voice through musical expression. Madeleine is a proud fellow of the English Consort in America fellowship.
