Tessa Seymour

Tessa Seymour

Tessa Seymour (cello), 12, is a resident of Berkeley, CA where she is a student at the Martin Luther King Middle School. A From the Top Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist, Tessa first gazed upon the cello while performing as a marshmallow in the ‘Nutcracker.’ The rest is history. Since then, Tessa has been named the ‘princess of celloslovakia’ and in some circles “the kissing musician.’ Rumor has it that Tessa has been caught on camera smooching such famous musicians as Yo-Yo Ma, Joshua Bell and Christopher O’Riley.
