Brannon Cho

24-year-old American cellist Brannon Cho is quickly building an international reputation as an emerging young concert artist of outstanding potential.

A graduate of Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music and the New England Conservatory, where he studied with Hans Jørgen Jensen and Laurence Lesser, and current student of Frans Helmerson at the Kronberg Academy, Brannon is a former major prize winner at the Naumburg, Cassadó, Johansen and Queen Elisabeth International Cello Competitions – and in October of last year was awarded 1st prize at the 2018 Paulo International Cello Competition – in Helsinki, Finland.

His recent debuts include solo engagements with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, Brussels Philharmonic, Orchestre Philharmonique Royale Liège and the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie – and chamber music collaborations with renowned artists, including Christian Tetzlaff, Gidon Kremer, Philip Setzer, Stephen Williamson and Joshua Bell.

Brannon currently performs on a 1668 Antonio Casini cello.
