Barb Hunter

I am a Skagit-County based cellist and cello teacher with 40 years of playing experience in both classical and rock/folk/pop settings. I studied with Geraldine Sutyak of the Cincinnati Symphony (herself a student of the great Janos Starker), baroque specialist Brent Wissick at UNC Chapel Hill, and LaSalle Quartet cellist Lee Fiser at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. I am a confident and passionate player with a profound enthusiasm for sharing music both as a performer and as an educator. I played in the Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra for ten years, serving as the Principal cellist from 2015-2018, and I have recently found a new orchestral home with the Bellingham Symphony Orchestra. I have also played in the Lake Washington Symphony Orchestra , Seattle Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra, Seattle Modern Orchestra, and the Starry Night Players. I am currently available for live performances, recording sessions, string arrangements, and cello lessons for all ages and all levels in Bellingham and Skagit County.

  1. Don’t need lessons. Just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your contribution to the Afghan Whigs song Brother Woodrow/Closing Prayer. It is far and away my favorite rock instrumental of all time.
    A new friend of mine who is an artist in Los Angeles is learning the cello and I played that for her last night for the first time and of course she loved it.
    I thought you should know. Thank you very much.
