David Sedlins began playing the cello at the age of two. He grew up in Minnesota, where his passion for classical music was nurtured by involvement in local youth symphonies and chamber groups. David continued his musical studies at the University of Wisconsin in Madison and then at the Eastman School of Music, where he completed his master’s degree. David has performed with the Madison Symphony Orchestra, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, Rochester Philharmonic, Greenville Symphony, Atlanta Pops and many other groups. Prior to coming to Claire Givens Violins, he also spent several years working with plants in the garden industry. Outside of music, David enjoys reading, gardening and playing frisbee golf.
