Freya Seeburger, aka Cellista, is an American cellist and artistic director of the interdisciplinary performing arts company Juxtapositions. She is known for collaborating with artists across various media, as well as self-producing live performances in unconventional spaces that incorporate elements of classical music, theater, improvisation and visual art across a range of genres including pop, hip-hop, classical and more. These performances often feature a carbon fiber cello and loop station.
Classically-trained, she has studied with members of the Alexander String Quartet and Kronos Quartet. In 2013 she entered SFSU for her MM. She is a Nagels scholarship recipient and a Belle Foundation grantee. In 2016, she presented the "End of Time" at Anno Domini art gallery in San Jose. This dual exhibit with internationally renowned visual artist Barron Storey received critical acclaim and was mentioned in Juxtapoz magazine, SJ's MetroActive and Silicon Valley Debug.
As an educator her work parallels her performing life in that it is at the intersection of many disciplines. She seeks to nourish process-based classrooms and teach, through music, theater, writing, and the valuable skills that are associated with the art by interweaving them into the general curriculum.
