      Get to know Zoe Taddie

      Zoe Taddie was born and raised on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio. Her interest in classical music was sparked by her mother’s vinyl record of Peter and the Wolf, narrated by David Bowie, which she listened to obsessively until she had memorized every word and melody. This passion for music led her to the cello, which she has played since the age of ten. From playing in youth orchestras and chamber groups, to becoming a mother of three and playing with her children, music has remained at the center of her life. She currently performs for weddings and with the Blue Ridge Orchestra, and loves sharing the joy of music with anyone who wants to learn.
