Josephine van Lier

A versatile musician, Josephine van Lier is equally at ease on a baroque cello or a 5 string violoncello piccolo as on their contemporary counterparts, using instruments and bows whose designs, construction and material span over 400 years in origin; from the gut strings of her baroque cello to her 1870 cello and the space-age material of her carbon-fibre cello. She therefore covers a wide variety of repertoire utilizing the endless possibilities that this range of instruments, string set-ups and bows allow her.

Born, raised and educated in the Netherlands, where she received her degree in both cello performance and pedagogy at the University of Groningen, she has lived and made music in Edmonton, Canada since 1995

She is recipient of the "Celebration of Women in the Arts Award" from the Edmonton Arts Council.
