Pam Chaddon, baroque cello and viola da gamba
As associate principal cellist of the Chamber Orchestra of Colorado Springs, Pam Chaddon has been praised for playing with “poetic grace” and “capturing the bold imagery and beauty” of the works she performs (the Gazette). She has performed with the Maryland and York Symphony Orchestras, Gettysburg and Millbrook Chamber Orchestras, Shippensburg Festival Orchestra, Harrisburg Choral Society, Bel Voce, and Cantate Carlise. As a soloist, she performed Faure’s Elegie with the Hanover Symphony. With violinist Jeri Jorgensen, she is a founding member of Trio Paradis, whose 2012-14 inaugural season presented music by women composers in a series titled “Unsung Voices.” Pam received her musical training at Peabody Conservatory under Mihaly Virizlay and Towson University under Cecylia Barczyk. She has taken master classes with Stephen Kates, Lorne Munroe, David Hardy, and Barbara Thiem. She studied baroque cello with internationally acclaimed gambist and cellist, Ann Marie Morgan.
