Praised for her sensitivity and beauty of sound, cellist Hannah Moses has performed worldwide both as a soloist and as a founding member of the Callisto Quartet. A Cleveland native and a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music and Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, Hannah’s teachers have included Richard Weiss, Melissa Kraut, and Norman Fischer. Hannah has collaborated with artists such as Zuill Bailey, Augustin Hadelich, Lawrence Power, and others, and has appeared as soloist with orchestras throughout the Midwest.

A committed educator as well as performer, Hannah grew up in a Suzuki household and studied Suzuki pedagogy with Melissa Kraut. Hannah was a member of the cello faculty at the Cleveland Music School Settlement and the Aurora School of Music for several years, and appeared as guest artist and juror at the 2018 Tennessee Cello Workshop Competition, after winning the competition in 2015. Hannah has been actively involved in chamber music coaching at CIM’s Young Artist Program, of which she is a graduate, and has served on faculty at the Hudson Montessori School Conservatory and the Western Reserve Chamber Festival.

Hannah’s greatest passion is chamber music, and as cellist of the Callisto Quartet, she enjoys traveling and performing around the world. The quartet maintains an active concert schedule and has had great competition success, winning Grand Prize at the 2018 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, as well as securing prizes at Banff, Bordeaux, Melbourne, Wigmore Hall, and Manhattan International Competitions. As chamber music educators, the Callisto Quartet recently developed and launched their own curriculum for young ensembles entitled “Chamber Music Deconstructed: a Comprehensive Curriculum”, which they have been implementing in chamber music programs across the country.

When not playing string quartets, Hannah enjoys running, rock climbing, and writing. She currently resides in New Haven, CT, with her cat, Snickers.
