Philadelphia native Genevieve Tabby, first picked up the cello after being inspired by her twin sister’s violin lessons at the age of eight. Since then, she continues to perform alongside her sister in performance and events. She was a repeated performer on NPR's "From the Top" series and television show at Carnegie Hall, and a repeated semifinalist in the Fischoff International Chamber Music Competition.

Ms. Tabby completed her undergraduate degree at the Cleveland Institute of Music, where she studied with Stephen Geber and Dr. Melissa Kraut and took part in the Cavani String Quartet's prestigious Intensive Quartet Seminar (IQS). She received her Master's degree in cello performance from Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music, where she studied with Hans Jorgen Jensen, a world-renowned pedagogue that shaped her to be the musician she is today. During her second year of the program she won the Northwestern-Civic Fellowship and participated as a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago from September 2014 through June 2016.

Summer festivals Ms. Tabby has participated in include Tanglewood Music Festival, Aspen Music Festival and School, Music Academy of the West, Meadowmount School of Music, and Bowdoin Music Festival. One of her recent highlights includes winning a fellowship with the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center, where she was contracted a week of concerts with the orchestra, as well as having private lessons, meetings, and mock auditions with the Philharmonic musicians. Her ambitions and dreams are to broaden her musical spectrum to different genres and to spread the joy of music to communities all over the world.

Typically, Ms. Tabby plays classical style pieces, but would mostly play in a duo setting or string quartet setting. With her professional quartet ATLYS, she also dives into crossover music which brings current songs into this traditional form of string quartet sound and form. Creating many of their own arrangements of songs from all over the world, the end product is breathtaking and worth a listen.
