Natalie Williams Calhoun

Cellist & Composer

Ms. Williams Calhoun completed her Master of Music degree in Violoncello performance at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England, and her Bachelor’s degree in Cello at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. Her professional career has led her from performing in a UK based piano trio during her time in Manchester to positions as a cellist in professional orchestras in the Maritimes and in Ontario (the National Ballet of Canada orchestra, the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony and Orchestra London Canada). She is also a founding member of Atlantic String Machine, a genre jumping string quintet based in Charlottetown, PEI. Natalie also enjoys collaborating with singer/songwriters, both live and in recording sessions. 

Frequently busy as both an arranger and orchestrator, Natalie is now starting to get busier as a composer, both for standalone compositions and film scores. Natalie was recently chosen to participate in the 2023 Fusion Film Scoring Workshop in Thessaloniki, Greece, and she will be returning to Greece to take part in the Screen Composer Academy in July 2024.
