Maria Hadge

  • She/Her
  • Biography

    A versatile cellist and champion of current music, Maria Hadge has been described as a “stunning” and “brilliant” musician, performing with a natural spunk. Her playing has taken her around the globe, working with early-career and master composers. A resident of New York City, Hadge is an active freelance musician who feels equally at home with contemporary music, free improvisation, and musical theater. Recent credits include Beauty and the Beast, Sound of Music, Into the Woods, Bright Star, and Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish at Stage 42.

    Miss Hadge performs as a core member of Ensemble Mise-En, which regularly promotes works by emerging composers, participates in residencies and festivals around the world, and collaborates with established composers. As a member of Luminous Sounds, she plays pop arrangements and classical tunes for upscale private events and weddings in New York City and Long Island. In early 2022, Hadge joined forces with flutist Kelley Barnett to create Spira Duo, which commissions and develops music for contrabass flute and cello.

    Outside of performing, Hadge enjoys running, baking bread, and embroidering. She also maintains a small private studio.
