MusiciansNoah Lawrence

Noah Lawrence is an eager young cellist with a love of music across a broad range of genres.

Growing up in Bendigo (Dja Dja Wurrung country) before moving to Melbourne to pursue the cello, Noah graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School in 2021. He spent his school years performing with the Australian and Melbourne Youth Orchestras and in the Australian Chamber Orchestra's academy. At school, he developed another broad love - this time of study - anything from maths to philosophy, chemistry to literature.

At the heart of his love for music is the opportunity to collaborate with others. He is proud to have performed as a member of numerous string quartets and has enjoyed the challenge of serving as a cello section leader in state and national youth orchestra programs. While at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM), Noah has performed with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria, WASO, TSO, and with members of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra at UKARIA in Adelaide Hills. Noah has performed as soloist with the Bendigo Symphony Orchestra and Percy Grainger Youth Orchestra. In February 2024 he returned home to play his second concerto with the BSO as part of the Bendigo Chamber Music Festival.

Noah has studied under Cally Bartlett, Sam Goble and Josephine Vains, without whose guidance and friendship he would not have been in a position to take the next step to ANAM.

In his third and final year, Noah is excited to continue exploring the language of music under the guidance of Howard Penny.
