Myriam Guillaume

Tutti Viola

Myriam was born in France and grew up near Paris. Aged 6 she started to learn the viola after she was inspired by a teacher’s performance of Bach. Myriam went on to study at the Conservatoire de Paris and worked as a freelance chamber musician before joining the CBSO as a tutti player. Her highlight so far would probably have to be her first concert with the CBSO playing Strauss Heldenleben with Andris Nelsons. She says “ I loved it! An amazing and genuine artist for whom music comes from the heart!”
