Graham Appleton


Graham is a UK-based cellist who lives near Oxford, England and spends 3 of the winter months in Naples.  After practising as a consultant surgeon in England, he retired early to concentrate on cello playing.  He also set up and runs ‘A440 Chamber Orchestra’ – an Oxford-based string ensemble of 18-20 that plays standing up and without a conductor.  His passions are for chamber and orchestral music and he facilitates meetings of keen players both in the UK and the US.  Whilst in SW Florida he is in a regular string quartet with other members of GCSO.  The quartet has supported GCSO’s extensive outreach activities with concerts in Boca Grande and Ft Myers.  Graham enjoys making music with GCSO for the colleagues, the varied repertory, and just the sheer joy of playing his cello.
