Norah Joy Clydesdale comes from a family of musicians originating in Glasgow, Scotland. Her grandfather, Mr. Robert Clydesdale, was an orchestra conductor and cellist who immigrated to New York State in 1932. He sailed on a cruise ship across the Atlantic performing trios aboard, and proceeded to continue his career as a cellist and teacher in upstate New York. 
Ms. Clydesdale’s parents were was Stuart and Joyce Clydesdale. Stuart played the piano, while Joyce sang professionally in opera productions in California’s Bay Area. Norah started playing the piano at five years of age and the cello at eight. Cello soon emerged as her main instrument of study. 
 
       
Norah studied with Colin Hampton of the Griller Quartet and Andor Toth, Jr. of the Hungarian Quartet at the San Francisco Conservatory. She then traveled south to study with Gabor Reijto and Bernardo Segall at USC before culminating her training at Boston University. In Boston Ms. Clydesdale studied for seven years with world-renowned concert cellist and pedagogue George Neikrug.
 
       
Ms. Clydesdale has participated in Masterclasses with Isaac Stern, Walter Trampler and Eugene Lehner of the Kolisch Quartet. She played professionally in the Boston area--principally as a chamber musician, performing the entire Beethoven Quartets Cycle with the Artaria Quartet before moving to Paris, France. In France she was an active educator, teaching cello, violin, and the love of music to children and adults in Paris. Ms. Clydesdale also developed the string department at the Lycee Ombrosa in Lyon, France. and Italian fluently, Ms. Clydesdale rounded out her career in Europe teaching music to young school children in Milan, Italy.
 
       
Norah recently returned from Europe and is now an active performer and educator in Colorado. She has performed with the Grace String Quartet, as Assistant Principal Cello
of the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs, and was Principal Cello of the Pikes Peak Philharmonic for the last three years.. Norah also performs with the Pueblo Symphony Orchestra, and is a founding member of the Colorado State University Faculty Piano Trio.
 
       
Earlier this season, Ms. Clydesdale gave a Masterclass at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque for the students of her friend and colleague, Dr. David Schepps, Professor of Cello.
Norah is currently developing the Clydesdale Music Studio in order to reach out to
interested students in the regional community as well as in New Mexico.
