Lovrick Gary III
Cellist Esther Seitz was brought up in a musical home and was immersed in music from a young age. She fell in love with the cello at the age of eight and subsequently began her studies of the instrument. Seitz is now proud to be the third generation of professional musicians in her family. Currently based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Seitz holds a position as a Rosemary and David Good Fellow with the Minnesota Orchestra.
A passionate chamber musician, Seitz is a founding member of the award-winning Bowery Trio which was formed in New York City in 2019. Their mission is to promote lesser-known works by composers of all races, ethnicities, and gender identities as well as to make music accessible to all. Recently, the Bowery Trio has been awarded multiple grants to support their current projects.
