Summer Crabb

2023 Cello Festival

Born into a musical family, Summer has been exposed to beautiful music from a very young age.  Beginning her cello studies at the age of 7, she has quickly progressed and has blossomed into a serious young artist. 

Summer is the recipient of the rising star award from the 2021 Jackie McGehee Competition for Strings.  In the same year she was also selected through a national audition process to perform at the 43rd annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington D.C. to honor the violinist Midori.  Recently in May 2023, she was the 3rd prize winner of the Santa Fe Symphony Concerto Competition.

An active member of the Albuquerque Youth Symphony, Summer also loves to play chamber music with her fellow music students and has performed the Dvorak American Quartet, the Popper Requiem for Three Cellos and Piano, and the Dvorak American Quintet.

Summers aspiration is to be a highly trained church musician that has the ability to raise up the downtrodden, restore the brokenhearted, and to make the congregation rejoice!  Her dream is to attend one of the best music schools in the country and has begun preparations to meet the audition requirements of these highly selective schools.
