Originally from British Columbia, twenty-three year old cellist Meran Currie-Roberts began her training at the Victoria Conservatory of Music at the age of seven. Meran moved to Toronto in 1995 and completed her Masters degree from the University of Toronto in 1999, studying with Shauna Rolston.

She is currently an active orchestral musician in the Toronto area playing frequently with the Toronto production of the Lion King, the National Academy Orchestra, Encounters Chamber Ensemble, Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Niagara Symphony. In addition to her orchestral work in Toronto, Meran has been principal Cello of the Colorado Springs Festival Orchestra, and in 1998 she toured Germany, Holland and Denmark as part of the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra.

As well as her work with the Madawaska Quartet, Meran plays chamber music frequently with the Wolf Trio and Autumn Leaf Chamber Ensemble. As a chamber musician, Meran has been broadcast on CBC Radio and TV as well as several local Toronto Stations. Meran has appeared as a soloist with the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Orchestra, and can be heard on several TV commercials as well as a CD released under the Reflections Label.

Meran has teaching studios in both Toronto and Peterborogh Ontario and loves sharing her knowledge of chamber music and cello with her students. She has taught at Interprovincial Music Camp and this past summer she was on faculty for the chamber music programme at the Kincardine Music Festival.
