Biography

Allison Seidner, cellist, is a native New Yorker and enjoyed exploring the rest of the country while on tour for almost a decade (The King and I, Jekyll & Hyde, The Music Man, Miss Saigon, and AIDA National/International Tours). Since returning home, she has built a diverse freelance career across multiple genres with a strong focus in new musical theater projects. Allison loves making music with incredible artists who are also incredible people. She has held Broadway chairs at Frozen, Kinky Boots, and The Addams Family, Off-Broadway chairs at Yank! and Penelope, and subbed/currently subs at a myriad of other shows. She has recorded numerous albums and cast recordings as well as two Grammy Award winning albums (Kinky Boots, The Book of Mormon). Allison has collaborated with artists including Cyndi Lauper, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Jay Z, Kanye West, Andrea Bocelli, and countless musical theater performers including Lea Michele and Tony Award winners Billy Porter, Annaleigh Ashford, Matt Doyle, and Stephanie J. Block. She is a proud member of the Will Van Dyke Band. She can also be seen and/or heard on The Tony Awards, Live From Lincoln Center, PBS Great Performances, The Today Show, Good Morning America, SMASH, Celebrity Apprentice, The Wiz Live!, Annie Live!, This American Life, and late night talkshows starring David Letterman, Seth Meyers, and Jimmy Fallon.

Allison is happiest when her days are filled with music, family, friends, and food. She has passed these traits on to her seven-year-old daughter and as best buddies, their love of culinary adventure means always getting to try twice as many things on the menu.
