Cassey began studying cello at age nine through the public school system in Buffalo, NY. She was determined to prove the boys wrong when they claimed her hands were too small to play the cello. Since then, playing in regional, community and chamber groups have been plentiful. She recently graduated from the University of Hartford’s Hartt School of Music where she studied with Professors Mihai Tetel and Terry King. In May of 2012 she graduated with a Bachelor in Cello Performance and a Bachelor in Acoustical Engineering and now holds a full-time position as an Acoustical Consultant but searches for as many playing opportunities as she can.
