Derek Snyder has appeared as a soloist with orchestras in both the United States and Europe, and -- as a chamber musician -- has collaborated with members of some of the country's most exciting ensembles, including the Cavani and Cleveland String Quartets, and the Cleveland, Detroit, Montreal and Baltimore Symphonies. He is the cellist in the nuevo tango band Oblivion Project, which explores the music of Astor Piazzolla, the Hastings Piano Trio, and a board member of the Cleveland Cello Society.
Derek's arrangements of the music of Graham Nash and Bootsy Collins have been performed by the Contemporary Youth Orchestra with the composers. He has created numerous transcriptions and arrangements for cello ensembles, focusing primarily on the music of Dave Brubeck and Astor Piazzolla. His arrangements of music by Brubeck can be heard on the Naxos label as preformed by the Yale Cellos.
Derek is the founder of the publishing company Cellocelli Music (www.cellocelli.com), a source for unique and contemporary sheet music and recordings for string players.
