Born in New York City, Allison Eldredge gave her first public recital at age 9. By the time she was 19, she had won the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant and Musical America's "Young Artist of the Year" Award. She has since been compared to the great cello masters and received critical acclaim for her technical ease and her impassioned performances in the premier concert halls of North America, Europe, Israel, Latin America and the Far East. Following her debut performance with the Chicago Symphony and conductor Daniel Barenboim, the Chicago Tribune heralded Eldredge as "a musician of remarkable gifts." Eldredge has performed as soloist with many of the world's great orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony, Boston Pops, New World Symphony, Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony, Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, Osaka Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, China National Symphony, Berlin Symphony, Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Hague Philharmonic, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, Warsaw Philharmonic and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. She has been the featured soloist of orchestral tours including a North American and European tour with the Warsaw Sinfonia under Krzysztof Penderecki. She has toured England with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, including a concert at Queen Elizabeth Hall; and has made four tours of Israel with the Haifa Symphony. Of special interest was a tour of Russia with the Moscow Virtuosi and Vladimir Spivakov, culminating in a nationally televised gala concert, at the Moscow Conservatory Grand Hall. She has toured every music capital of Eastern Europe with such orchestras as the Ukraine State Symphony and twelve cities of Western Europe with the Budapest Symphony Orchestra. In 2004, she was appointed as Artistic Director of the Killington Music Festival in Vermont, a summer music festival now in its 28th year. She lives in Boston.
