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. 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. 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's Prometheus Piano Trio. Norah is on the Adjunct Faculty as Cello Instructor at CSU-Pueblo and on the Faculty at Pikes Peak Community College as well. She was the Music Director at St. John Neumann Catholic School in Pueblo with 120 violin-viola and cello students from 2015-2018 and also maintains private teaching studios in Colorado Springs and Pueblo.
