She was accepted into the prestigious studio of world-renowned pedagogue, Hans Jensen, for her Master’s degree at Northwestern University. During her studies, she won the Northwestern-Civic Fellowship and participated as a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago.  Throughout her studies, Ms. Tabby’s playing has taken her to some of the top music festivals around the world and have led her to play with the New York Philharmonic. Currently, Ms. Tabby teaches a private studio, freelances, and records cello tracks from songs and albums, to commercials, tv and film. In fact, her recordings have featured her on several films, including the major Hollywood film, ‘Heart of Champions, released in 2021, as well as multi-award winning documentary ‘Buried: The 1982 Alpine Meadows Avalanche,’ released in 2022.  Ms. Tabby is a full-time member of the ATLYS string quartet. They perform world-wide as their own act and alongside artists. From working alongside Yo Yo Ma to  traveling the world representing Lincoln Center in New York City to sharing the stage with celebratory icon Oprah Winfrey, ATLYS never stops! In 2021, ATLYS worked with EDM artist Seven Lions,  and performed at Red Rocks Amphitheatre  in Colorado, as well as the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington, playing for sold out shows of  15,000 people.  An epic album titled OPUS has been recorded and released on Seven Lions’ record, Ophelia Records, from all the works ATLYS performed throughout the year with them. Throughout the performing, Ms. Tabby works with ATLYS to maintain a large and active social media following on Facebook, Instagram, Spotify, and Patreon.  When Genevieve isn’t playing cello, you can find her hanging out with her adorable Shi-Chi (Shi-tzu/Chihuahua), Joni, watching movies!
