Veronica Henderson

Veronica Henderson (cello) studied music at St Catharine's College, Cambridge, and then specialised in the cello at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Solo work has taken her to Switzerland and Belgium, particularly with the choir, Cambridge Voices, with whom she recorded and gave the first performances of Carl Rütti's “Lieder der Liebe” in 1994. In summer 2016 she performed Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto with Letchworth Sinfonia, and she returned to play Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations with them in January 2018. Recent performances with members of her chamber ensemble, Cerberus, have included Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with Cambridge’s K.239 Chamber Orchestra and piano trios by Debussy, Schubert and Schumann.

Veronica also gives concerts of chamber music with the Scottish pianists Katharine Durran and Jill Morton and this season she returned to Moffat Music Society and the Cambridge Szeged Society. In recent years Veronica and the Scottish-Polish pianist, Elizabeth Mucha, renewed contact and through this friendship have embarked on chamber music projects with the Bulgarian violinist, Krassimira Jeliazkova-Jones.
