Caroline Iantosca
The Cello in Song
Free admission, donation optional. Sponsored by SVAN.

Praised for her elegance and commanding presence on the stage, cellist Caroline Iantosca performs internationally as a soloist, chamber, and orchestral musician. She has made recent appearances at the Liszt Academy Concert Center in Budapest, the Pitti Palace and Teatro Verdi of Florence, and plays regularly throughout Tuscany and the eastern United States.

A native of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Caroline discovered the cello at the age of eight, and at sixteen made her debut as a soloist with Saint-Saens' Cello Concerto in A minor. She has since given numerous solo recitals and performed in the masterclasses of Richard Aaron, Giovanni Gnocchi, Phoebe Carrai, Marc Moskovitz, Kenneth Slowik, and Nancy Green.

Caroline holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was a student of Brent Wissick. During her degree, she was chosen in a competitive selection process to study on exchange at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where she worked under the guidance of Lionel Handy. Her other teachers include Leonid Zilper of the North Carolina Symphony, Fred Raimi of the Ciompi Quartet, and Andrea Nannoni, with whom she currently studies at the Conservatorio Cherubini of Florence, Italy.

An avid orchestral musician, Caroline has held leading positions in the Raleigh Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestra Sinfonica Cherubini, the Triangle Youth Ballet Orchestra and the UNC Symphony Orchestra. She was recently selected for an apprenticeship with the Orchestra Regionale della Toscana, which will take place in the fall of 2014.

In addition to her classical work, Caroline is an admirer of contemporary music and has performed world premieres of works by modern-day composers such as Russell Currie, Pietro Rigacci, and Chun Ju Yen. She also has a great love of teaching and maintains a private studio of cello students.

Caroline plays a uniquely embellished 2006 cello by John Montgomery of Raleigh, North Carolina.
