Dale Henderson

Cellist, Classical Artist

“a very gifted musician, a natural cellist” – Yo-Yo Ma

Described by Yo-Yo Ma as “a very gifted musician, a natural cellist,” Dale Henderson began cello at five and thrived as a chamber musician, orchestra cellist, and soloist in Boston’s rich musical community. He made his professional solo debut at thirteen with the Buffalo Philharmonic and conductor Eiji Oue. In 1993 Sir Yehudi Menuhin invited Dale to attend the International Menuhin Music Academy in Gstaad, Switzerland, and from 1996 to 2000 Henderson earned a Bachelor of Music at Boston’s New England Conservatory. He also studied in Paris and pursued a Master of Music at UCLA.

From 2004 to 2008 Dale served as the cello faculty at Community Music Center of Boston, and in 2010 founded Bach in the Subways in New York. Initially, a solo project intended to bring classical music to new audiences, Bach in the Subways flowered into a global music movement which now brings live Bach to the public in hundreds of cities in dozens of countries. Dale is based in New York City and performs around the world.
