About The Susanne Beer Cello Corner Foundation
Susanne Beer (1967-2019), former co-principal cellist of the London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO), founded The Cello Corner, a Suzuki method teaching studio in Highbury & Islington in 2012. Through her inspirational teaching, she trained over sixty young cellists, many to a high level. Susanne passed away in December 2019 at the age of 52, from melanoma cancer. Towards the end of her life, she decided to create The Susanne Beer Cello Corner Foundation, so that she could continue to support young musicians well into the future.

The Susanne Beer Cello Corner Foundation offers fine cello and bow loans; performance opportunities; prizes; grants; and assistance with tuition. It is run by a group of Susanne's friends, family and LPO colleagues who endeavour to preserve Susanne's memory and spirit and to continue her support of young musicians in attaining excellence in performance.
