Sebastian Stoger is currently a first-year masters student at The Juilliard School, studying with Joel Krosnick and Timothy Eddy. Some other of Sebastian’s most important mentors include Ron Leonard, Paul Katz, and Clara Kim, and his first cello teacher, Yari Bond. In October 2012, Sebastian was featured on the NPR radio show From The Top, where he received a Jack Kent Cooke Artist Award. Subsequently Sebastian was also involved in a video production with NPR From The Top: a tutorial series called “How to Nail It” in which he comedically shares his input on how to address technical and musical difficulties in Bach’s Cello Suite No. 6. This series is posted on From The Top and can be viewed worldwide. In Spring 2017 Sebastian was named a National Young Arts Winner, and in fall 2019 Sebastian’s past piano trio, the Vuillaume Trio, was placed into the prestigious Honors Chamber Music Program at Juilliard and was featured live on a WQXR radio program presenting female composers. In May 2022 Sebastian will compete in the semifinals round of the 2022 Washington International Competition.
Sebastian is an avid player in all musical forms, ranging from classical music, to jazz, to a wide variety of contemporary music. His current most favorite program that he adds to many of his solo performances includes a d minor Partita dedicated to him by composer Julian Bennett-Holmes, followed by the Bach Chaconne for Violin in D minor arranged for cello. Since 2016, Sebastian has been the featured cello soloist of Omega Ensemble, an organization that has given him bountiful opportunities to perform in upscale venues throughout the New York Metropolitan Area.
Sebastian has attended many prestigious music programs and festivals, including the Perlman Music Program, the Yellow Barn Young Artist Program, and the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival. In June 2022, Sebastian will be attending the Aspen Music Festival with an Aspen Fellowship. Sebastian currently plays on a beautiful Gaetano Sgarabotto instrument, generously loaned to him by Curtis Bryant Fine Cellos.
