Info

Jakob Nierenz. Cellist. Collaborative Artist.

„I was born in Lüneburg in northern Germany in 1991. The joys of communicating, collaborating and educating through music are the core components of my artistic work. Taking on leadership in orchestras and ensembles on stage as well as behind the scenes as member on various boards and teams, I seek to support and help create platforms and musical spaces that go beyond the performance traditions of western classical music and connect audiences with diverse musics and stories.“
