Jonny Ingall – Cello
Jonny was born in Great Yarmouth, but moved to Rotherham at an early age. He studied cello with Jennifer Round and was awarded the ABRSM’s Marguerite Swan Memorial Prize for the highest mark for Grade 8 Cello in 1990. Following a twenty-year break, he came back to playing the cello in 2013. He has been principal cellist of Sheffield Symphony Orchestra since early 2015 and has also been principal cellist of Rotherham Symphony Orchestra since its formation in 2017. He is one half of a violin and cello duo with Lucy Phillips – they are both passionate about introducing their audiences to lesser-known works. When he is not busy playing his cello, Jonny works as a freelance braille transcriber, proofreader and copy-editor.
