Lucia Magney: Cello
Lucia Magney is Assistant Principal Cellist of the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra and the Minneapolis Pops Orchestra. She teaches Cello, Chamber Music, and String Methods at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University, where she has been a faculty member since 1990. Lucia attended the Bernard Greenhouse Celebration in Greensboro, NC in 2005 and the Midori Community Engagement Seminar at USC in 2007 in support of her work as an artist/teacher. Lucia holds degrees from the University of Minnesota and Manhattan School of Music where she was a student of Bernard Greenhouse. When she is not playing classical music (or performing her duties as General Manager of the Pops Orchestra), she can often be found practicing Scottish fiddle music. She has attended Sierra Fiddle camp multiple times to perfect her “chopping” technique. Lucia also enjoys kayaking and spending time at her cabin “up north”. She recently earned her Captain’s license for sailing.
