Hailed by The Guardian as “a cellist of power and grace” who possesses “mature artistry and willingness to go to the brink,” Grammy Award-nominated cellist Seth Parker Woods has established his reputation as a versatile artist and innovator.
This season, Woods premieres a new version of his Difficult Grace at 92NY, UCLA, and Chicago’s Harris Theater; curates and performs a program honoring George Walker at the Phillips Collection; premieres Freida Abtan’s My Heart is a River with the Seattle Symphony; and performs a premiere by Anna Thorvaldsdottir at Carnegie Hall, part of Claire Chase’s Density Series. The Great Northern Festival in Minneapolis presents Woods’ performance installation, Iced Bodies, and he also joins national tours with pianist Andrew Rosenblum and the Chad Lawson Trio. Woods releases a new solo album on Cedille Records and contributed to the soundtrack of the 2022 Ken Burns PBS documentary, The U.S. and the Holocaust. He is nominated for a 2023 Grammy Award with new music ensemble, Wild Up.
