Cellist Sterling Elliott Signs with Colbert Artists Management 

The cellist was the 2021 Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient and senior division winner of the 2019 Sphinx Competition


Elliott will join the likes of Tai Murray, Anne Akiko Meyers, Esther Yoo and VC Artist Timothy Chooi on the Colbert Artists roster for general management. 

As a winner of the 2021 Salon de Virtuosi Career Grant, he recently appeared live at Kaufman Music Center’s Merkin Hall, performing alongside other recipients including VC Artists Kevin Zhu and the Ulysses Quartet

Elliott began playing cello when he was three, making his solo debut at age seven. He later won prizes at the Richmond Symphony, Bay Youth Orchestra, and Hampton Roads Philharmonic concerto competitions. 

He played for Yo-Yo Ma and his collaborations have included recording artist Jennifer Hudson. Various newspaper outlets have referred to Elliott’s playing as “strikingly mature” and “effortlessly balancing the combined forces of the orchestra.” 

Recent orchestral appearances include the San Antonio, Richmond, and West Virginia Symphony Orchestras, the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, Orlando Philharmonic, and Hawaii Symphony Orchestra. He also debuted with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl in summer 2021.

Additionally, Elliott is a Young Strings of America ambassador for SHAR Strings and was the first recipient of The National Arts Club’s Herman and Mary Neuman Music Scholarship Award. In 2016, he was awarded the Isaac Stern Award.

He obtained his undergraduate degree in cello performance at the Juilliard School earlier this year and is currently completing his master’s degree in music there as a Kovner Fellow with Joel Krosnick
