Canadian cellist Soo Bae, winner of the 2005 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, was selected by Musical America as “New Artist of the Month” (March 2009) on Musicalamerica.com. In September 2009 the McGraw-Hill Companies honoured her with the $10,000 Robert Sherman Award for Music Education and Community Outreach. In 2006 she became the first Canadian ever awarded a prize at the Adam International Cello Festival and Competition in New Zealand. Later that same year the Canada Council of the Arts awarded her First Prize in its Instrument Bank Competition, resulting in a three-year loan of the ca. 1696 Bonjour Stradivari cello.

She has appeared as a soloist with orchestras in Canada, the United States, New Zealand, Japan, Korea and China, and also as a chamber musician. Born in Seoul, Korea, Soo Bae began her cello studies at the age of six and moved to Toronto two years later, where she enrolled at the Royal Conservatory of Music. She received her Bachelor of Music from the Curtis Institute of Music and her Master of Music degree and Artist Diploma from The Juilliard School, where she served as assistant to Joel Krosnick. She teaches at the Gordon College in Boston and runs and directs the Angelos Mission Ensemble Chamber music program in New Jersey, of which she is founder.
