  • Cellist Raleigh | Cello Lessons Raleigh


With global recognition for his inventive approach to classical music, Attila Szasz has performed in recitals throughout Asia, Europe and North America as a soloist and as an orchestral and chamber musician.

Growing up in a small town in Transylvania, Romania, Mr. Szasz’s instructors recognized his gift for music at an early age and encouraged him to attend the prestigious Dr. Palló Imre Visual and Performing Arts High School. At age 16 – after already performing with the Szeklerland Symphonic Orchestra in Romania – he entered his first national string competition and placed in the top five.

Today, he continues to receive accolades for his talent and commitment to cello performance. Romania’s University of Oradea granted Mr. Szasz a full scholarship to pursue a dual Bachelor’s Degree in Cello Performance and Cello Education, followed by a second scholarship to pursue a Master’s Degree in Chamber Music. Rising to the top of his class, he achieved recognition for performances in the Oradea State Philharmonic and Szeklerland Symphonic Orchestra and Quartet – both based in Romania.

Mr. Szasz continues to travel the world as a soloist, and a chamber and orchestra musician. He was the principal cellist in the Pommersfelden Music Festival orchestra in Germany and achieved acclaim for his solo and chamber performances in Hungary and Switzerland. In addition, he is committed to musical education in Romania – serving as a cello instructor at the Nagy Istvan Visual and Performing Arts High School and the Dr. Palló Imre Visual and Performing Arts High School. His students have been awarded National Competition First Prizes and are regularly admitted to the world’s leading universities and music schools.

More recently, Mr. Szasz was granted yet another full scholarship to West Chester University of Pennsylvania, where he served as Principal Cellist of the West Chester University Symphony Orchestra. He also traveled with the Camerata Philadelphia to China and was appointed Principal Cellist of the Altoona Symphony Orchestra.

Mr. Szasz currently teaches privately in Cary, North Carolina and performs with the Durham Symphony Orchestra.
