Finn Anderson-Hendra

Finn has studied the cello since she was 3. She is taught by Ben Davies at the Junior
Royal Academy of Music. Last year she achieved her ATCL performance diploma with distinction. She is a keen performer: a finalist in this year’s Haslemere International String
Competition and a prize winner at local festivals for several years, including being awarded the Suzanne Beer Cello Foundation Prize at North London Festival 2022 and Young Musician of
the Year 2023 at Stratford and East London Festival. Finn takes an active musical part in her local community, singing in Hackney Children’s Choir and performing cello regularly alongside a local community choir, the Dissenters Chorus, and as a soloist with their orchestra, most recently performing Elgar’s Cello Concerto.

As well as solo performance, Finn is the principal cello of the National Youth String Orchestra and plays with the Symphony Orchestra and SSCO at Junior RAM.

Finn also enjoys playing folk music on cello, accordion, and whistles, experimenting with loop pedals and multi-track recording, and loves to combine her music with other passions of creative writing and photography.
