Jonny Ingall – Cello

Jonny grew up in Rotherham and studied cello with Jennifer Round. He was awarded the ABRSM’s Marguerite Swan Memorial Prize for the highest mark for Grade 8 Cello in 1990. Following a twenty-year break, he came back to playing the cello in 2013. Soon afterwards he joined Hallam Sinfonia, and in 2015 he was appointed principal cellist of Sheffield Symphony Orchestra. He performed Fauré’s Élégie in June 2018 at Wentworth Woodhouse with Rotherham Symphony Orchestra, with whom he was also principal cellist. He is a member of The Brigantes Orchestra, Sheffield’s recently-established professional orchestra. He has regular lessons with Peggy Nolan in Manchester. When he is not busy playing his cello, Jonny works as a freelance braille transcriber, proofreader and copy-editor.
