Teresa Angell completed her bachelors degrees in Cello Performance and Nursing in 2011 at University of Lynchburg, where she graduated with highest honors in music. She has cultivated her love of chamber and orchestral music from an early age, playing in regional orchestras and the American Youth Philharmonic as a young adult. Teresa worked as a psychiatric nurse at Virginia Baptist Hospital from 2011 to 2014, maintaining a small private cello studio, free-lancing, and remaining active in the Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra and the James Chamber Players. After receiving a breast cancer diagnosis in 2014, Teresa took a hiatus from her nursing career to focus on regaining her health and raising her two small boys. She fell more deeply in love with chamber and orchestral music during this time, while, though unable to play cello due to a series of operations, Teresa was able to attend concerts, purely to listen and enjoy. She returned to performance herself with a vengeance in 2015 and hasn’t looked back. Teresa now serves as principal cellist of the Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra and continues to play with the James Chamber Players. She is a member of the Calabrone Quartet of University of Lynchburg, and she never turns down an opportunity to play chamber music with friends. Teresa maintains a private cello studio based out of her home in Forest, where she resides with her wonderful husband, Jeffrey, and their two rambunctious boys, Gabe and Tony.
