Linda Metzler


Cellist Linda Metzler has lived and played in the Philadelphia metropolitan area for over twenty years and in that performance career has appeared in many musical guises: as soloist, chamber musician, devoted continuo player (a particular favorite!) and orchestral player. She has performed across the Delaware Valley in varying venues from the Academy of Music to the Arden Theatre to smaller church spaces and outdoor theatre. Highlights of her career have been the 2009 production of Bach's St. John Passion with the St. John Players, Vaughan Williams' Symphony No. 6 with the Reading Symphony and Ash Lawn Highland Opera Festival's production of My Fair Lady. She is a founding member of Philalea, a Philadelphia based piano trio, and cellist with the Fairmount String Quartet. 

  A graduate of Shenandoah Conservatory (summa cum laude) and Temple University, Metzler credits her studies with Kenneth Lurie, Allen Whear, William Averitt, Lambert Orkis, Luis Biava, Jan Kryzwicki and Jeffrey Solow as having been exceptionally formative and inspiring.
  Also a private cello teacher of twenty-five years, Linda currently teaches at Ursinus College, Springside Chestnut Hill Academy and out of her home studio in Conshohocken where she lives and relishes gardening, reading, volunteering, playing with her family and nurturing an enduring interest in jazz.
