Cuban-Chinese-American cellist & blogger Sophia Bacelar is a soloist with global reach and a passion for communication and personal development.
Her unique multicultural and multilingual backgrounds tie her to her diverse community of followers worldwide with whom she regularly interacts on Instagram and YouTube.
Both as a musician and individual, Sophia is committed to self-improvement and aims to inspire her audiences to live positively and grow.
Following her graduation from The Juilliard School, Sophia left home at age 16 to live abroad, where she studied in leading European conservatories in Paris and Berlin.
In the early years of her performing career as soloist, during which she appeared on the stages of Carnegie Hall, the Berliner Philharmonie, le Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, la Fondation Louis Vuitton, the Tonhalle Zürich, Victoria Hall, and more, Sophia began to recognize the impact of mental, physical, and emotional health on performing artists.
From here, her interests in Biohacking and total mind-body performance optimization were born. Alongside her musical pursuits, Sophia is dedicated to the expansion of personal potential and lifestyle engineering through diet, fitness, meditation, and mental training.
When not traveling and performing around the world, Sophia lives in downtown NYC with her Havanese/Shih-Tzu, Cuba, and is currently pursuing her Artist Diploma at The Juilliard School. Besides playing the cello, she can usually be found at one of her favorite fitness studios, in a vegan/gluten-free cafe, or reading.
