Recognized for both his fearless embracing of challenge and his expressive performances, young Argentinean cellist Juan Sebastian Delgado recently finished a Doctoral degree in music performance at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, focusing on contemporary music under the guidance of celebrated solo cellist Matt Haimovitz.
Driven by a passion to share the power of music with others, Juan Sebastian has conducted a variety of unique projects on international stages in more than 20 countries with renowned performers, research-creation initiatives with leading contemporary composers charting new directions in sound and technique, and outreach adventures in remote communities teaching music to disadvantaged youth.
Current principal cellist of Pronto Musica Chamber Orchestra in Montreal, conducted by Alexis Hauser, and a member of the BIK Ensemble (Krystina Marcoux, percussion and Alex Read, violin) an unconventional trio that specializes in the commissioning of new instrumental theatre and tango works, Juan Sebastian has increasingly used his intellectual curiosity to re-imagine his practice by bringing the perspectives of past and present into dialogue.
