Amanda Forsyth

Principal cello of Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra from 1999 to 2015, Amanda Forsyth has established an international reputation as soloist and chamber musician.

She has toured with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and appeared with such orchestras as the Orchestre Radio de France, Lisbon’s Gulbenkian Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, Maggio Musicale Orchestra, Dallas Symphony, Moscow Virtuosi and Mariinsky Theater Orchestra.

In 2014 Ms. Forsyth was invited for her first homecoming tour of South Africa performing Malcolm Forsyth’s Elektra Rising among other repertoire. Recent concerts have included playing Victor Herbert’s Cello Concerto with the Israel Philharmonic conducted by Pinchas Zukerman, a cello ensemble concert with Mischa Maisky and others at the Miyazaki Festival, and the Brahms Double Concerto in Seoul with Pinchas Zukerman, the KBS Symphony Orchestra and Yoel Levi.

A founding member of the Zukerman Chamber Players, Amanda Forsyth has visited much of Europe and the Middle East. As cellist of the Zukerman Trio, she has performed throughout Europe, Asia, and the US including summer festivals in Edinburgh, Verbier, BBC Proms and Ravinia.

Recordings include Schubert’s Trout Quintet with the Zukerman Chamber Players and Yefim Bronfman, and Brahms’ Double Concerto with Pinchas Zukerman and the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Ottawa. In 2002 she was the subject of the Bravo! Canada television documentary Amanda Rising: The Amanda Forsyth Story. Amanda Forsyth moved to Canada from South Africa as a child. She became a protégé of William Pleeth in London, and later studied with Harvey Shapiro at the Juilliard School. She performs on a rare 1699 Italian cello by Carlo Giuseppe Testore.
