Meredith McCook

Meredith McCook was born in Tyler, Texas, and joined the cello section of the Kansas City Symphony in 2015. Before playing in Kansas City, she played with the New World Symphony in Miami under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas for four years. She completed her Master’s degree at Manhattan School of Music in New York, where she studied with Alan Stepansky, and she received her Bachelor of Music from the University of North Texas studying with Eugene Osadchy. Meredith has performed at numerous festivals including Spoleto, Artosphere, Thy (Denmark), Tanglewood Music Center, Music Academy of the West, Canada’s Young Artists’ Programme, Kennedy Center, Domaine Forget, and Summit. She has been playing as Assistant Principal Cello with the Britt Summer Festival in Oregon since 2014. She has also studied with David Geber and Hans Jensen, and was a winner of the University of North Texas concerto competition, the Young Texas Artists competition, and Manhattan School of Music’s Fuchs chamber music competition.  When not playing with the Kansas City Symphony, Meredith also enjoys teaching, playing chamber music, playing in her cello duo (“2CellosKC”) with Kansas City Symphony Associate Principal Cellist Susie Yang, and playing with her two dogs – a Chesapeake Bay Retriever and a Sheepadoodle.
