Named “Canada’s next big cello star” by the CBC and winner of the 2021 Virginia Parker Prize from the Canada Council for the Arts, cellist Cameron Crozman regularly performs in Canada coast-to-coast as well as throughout Europe and the USA. He has appeared as a soloist with the Paris Ile-de-France, Montreal, Vancouver Island, and Winnipeg Symphonies among others, and engagements have taken him everywhere from the Paris Philharmonie to the Qidi Vidi Brewery of St. John’s, Newfoundland. An avid collaborator and chamber musician, Cameron shares the stage with eminent artists such as James Ehnes, Augustin Hadelich, André Laplante, and James Campbell.
Cameron was one of 6 cellists from around the world chosen to take part in Gautier Capuçon’s 2016-17 Classe d’Excellence at the Louis Vuitton Foundation. After studies with Paul Pulford in Canada, he went on to receive his Master’s level in cello and chamber music from the Paris Conservatoire studying cello with Michel Strauss and chamber music with Claire Désert and Ami Flammer. Cameron’s debut album, Cavatine, recorded on the ca. 1696 “Bonjour” Stradivarius cello with pianist Philip Chiu, was released to critical acclaim in 2019. His most release, Tapeo, features a program of Spanish-inspired music, also in collaboration with Philip Chiu.
Cameron is founder and artistic director of ClassicalValley – a festival pairing music and wine in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia – and the Edeta Arts International Chamber Music Festival in the UNESCO city of music Llíria, Spain.
