Caroline Busser, cellist of French and German origin, was born in Munich. As a five year old, she received her first music lessons, learned the flute, violin and piano before she fell in love with the cello, which would fascinate and accompany her through her musical career.  With the sonorous sound of the cello that is most similar to the human voice, you could “tell” stories to the public. In youth orchestra and chamber music ensembles she discovered to communicate with others through music, “carrying” the sound with the bass voice, being part of an accomplished piece of art.

She made this “first love” her profession, practicing and soon winning awards such as the National Cello Award Germany. Her studies led her to the Music Conservatories Strasbourg, Detmold and Munich where she played her final degree concert with great success. Prof. Bernard Greenhouse, one of the most renowned chamber music professors, invited her for a private scholarship to the United States. Under scholarship of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, Caroline performed in the most prestigious concert halls under some of the most prominent conductors such as Zubin Mehta, Lorin Maazel and Christian Thielemann. 2013 she became the Principal Cellist of Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern.

The most fulfilling thing thus far in Caroline’s eventful career has been chamber music, and she wants to spread the joy it has given her playing concerts with her duo “ICstrings” and the project MusicConnectsEurope.
