Rachel Scott – Cellist

Rachel Scott is a Sydney-based cellist known for her unconventionality – in programming, choice of artists, venue choices and delivery in concerts. She is constantly trying new combinations of instruments – cello and percussion, cello and accordion, cello and spoken word. Concerts are a time of celebration – of sharing and enjoying.

Rachel writes “So many times I go to concerts where everything is very serious. There is a huge gulf between the audience and the players. I sit in the darkened concert hall and wonder why. I am sharing this music with the players – why is it all so serious, like a dinner party with no conversation? Who said Bach is so stolid? Is Mendelssohn meant to be that staid? Is this the way it should be?”

A audience member wrote “This is just to thank you for a great evening of music last night. You both played beautifully, and I particularly liked the way you spoke about the music, warmly and with humour... why can’t other classical musicians do that?”

Come and share Rachel’s music-making – all the performances are listed on the Performances page. Come and listen, enjoy and smile. Perhaps laugh. And come and talk to her afterwards – she’d love to see you!
