Michael HaberEcolint alumnus Michael Haber (LGB '59) has had a long and distinguished career as a cellist, performing, recording and touring worldwide with several orchestras and ensembles. More recently he has enjoyed teaching and coaching young musicians.

We are delighted to welcome him "back to school" this May, when he will spend three days working with the Music Department in the Centre des arts at La Grande Boissière.

Michael's programme at the school (26-28 May 2015) will include time with the staff of the music department, discussing both the philosophy and practicalities of teaching music. After that he will spend two days working with students: helping them with their performance, providing career advice, and also playing with them in rehearsal sessions.

We hope to schedule at least one open rehearsal or masterclass that other students, teachers, parents and alumni can attend. More details will be provided in due course.

More on Michael Haber

As described in his response to our 90-9-90 Project, the decision to carve out a career in music was something of a leap of faith for Michael Haber - but it was a leap worth taking and he hasn't regretted it for one moment. To pick just a few of his career highlights, Michael was a member of The Cleveland Orchestra under George Szell, the Casals Festival Orchestra under Pablo Casals and the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra at the Lincoln Center, New York.

As the cellist of The Composers Quartet in residence at Columbia University, he toured and recorded throughout the United States and Europe. He has served on the cello and chamber music faculties of Oberlin College, The New England Conservatory, Indiana University, The Eastman School of Music and The University of Akron. He has The London Times has called him “a romantic cellist,” The New York Times spoke of the “lyricism and perfection of his playing,” and The Plain Dealer has called him a “superb musician.”

We are honoured to welcome him to the school that inspired him to pursue a "passionate, dedicated life" in music!
