Cellist and gambist Andrea Stewart is a versatile musician and artistic instigator whose explorations span from historical performance to the new sounds and techniques of contemporary music. As a soloist and chamber musician, she has created and performed in numerous projects, including multimedia works, prize-nominated album recordings, film-concerts, international tours, and the commissioning of new music. Andrea is a founding member and the associate director of Juno-nominated string nonet collectif9 and a member of Infusion Baroque and the Arion Baroque Orchestra. The innovative programs and educational productions of her chamber ensembles have been toured worldwide. Andrea holds the degrees of Doctor of Music and Master of Music from McGill University. Her artistic explorations are based on the impact of multi-instrumentalism on one’s approach to music-making on historical and modern instruments, and her programming is devoted to the inclusion of lesser heard voices in the classical sphere. Andrea regularly gives workshops and masterclasses in chamber music and solo repertoire. Now living in Montréal, Quebec, Andrea is originally from London, Ontario.
