About the Artist

A multi-faceted individual, Benjamin Noyes (b. 1974) has many talents all revolving around an exceptional focus on the cello. With a particular interest, fascination and devotion to the qualities and production of sound, he channels his creativity and music into areas including, but not limited to performing, teaching, composing, recording, producing, drawing and writing. He is widely acclaimed for his performances of solo recitals, chamber ensemble concerts, and various classical and non-classical ventures. Pursuing the artist’s life has led him to collaborations and performances throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, performing, teaching, coaching and motivating individuals of all ages and professions with his signature, one-of-a kind projects.

Benjamin Noyes was born into the rich musical/pedagogical heritage of his parents, both members of the Portland Symphony Orchestra in Portland, Maine, finding local acclaim as a performer immediately. While attending Bowdoin Summer Music Festival, Irene Sharp invited him to study in San Francisco where he attended the School of the Arts and San Francisco Conservatory’s preparatory division.

He earned a Bachelor of Music at Rice University, and a Master of Music from Northwestern University, where he participated in the Chicago Symphony’s Civic Orchestra program playing under maestros Pierre Boulez, Mstislav Rostropovich, and Daniel Barenboim, among others. He has played with the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra, Miami Symphony, Roanoke Symphony, Roanoke Opera Orchestra, various summer opera orchestras and musical theatre ensembles. He was also adjunct faculty at Randolph College.

Ben has won numerous awards, including top prizes in NFAA’s ARTS Recognition, National Federation of Music Clubs, and National ASTA competitions, and was selected by Yo-Yo Ma to participate as soloist and recitalist throughout China, performing with the Beijing, Chengdu, Shenzen and Shanghai Symphony Orchestras. As a fellowship recipient he attended the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, the New York String Orchestra Seminar, Yale’s Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, the Sarasota Chamber Music Festival, the Aspen Festival, and Meadowmount, and studied as an undergraduate at the Eastman School of Music.
