"Acting and music should be similar:
You listen, and you react"

Nicholas Canellakus


Hailed by The New Yorker as a “superb soloist,” Mr. Canellakis made his Carnegie Hall concerto debut with the American Symphony Orchestra and is a regular guest artist at many of the world’s leading music festivals. Also a filmmaker and actor, he has hosted a comedy web series in which he conducts satirical interviews with stars of the classical music world and has produced and directed several music videos and fictional shorts, among them Thin Walls (2019) about an obsessive cellist who practices all day long. Filmed in October 2019, Mr. Canellakis joined us in New York City between performances to tell about his unusual musical life.
