DORETTE ROOS

Dorette Roos is an exceptional cellist and successful entrepreneur. She completed her Bachelor of Music in cello performance at Oberlin Conservatory in the United States of America and her Master of Music degree at the University of Stellenbosch and the Mozarteum University in Salzburg, Austria. 

From 2008 to 2018 Dorette was a permanent member of the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, after which she spread her wings as business woman and performer – establishing herself in the electric string world.

As multi faceted cellist, Dorette engages in various styles of music – from playing strict classical music and opera, as member of the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and Fynbos Ensemble, to pop and experimental genres as session musician for different recording studios, film projects and remote recording artist, to improvising on electronic and current pop music as solo electric performer.  

As a young entrepreneur, Dorette founded her own business, PLAY Live Music in 2012. The PLAY String Quartet features at numerous events and weddings each year and boasts the largest repertoire of contemporary pop music in SA. In 2013 Dorette became the music coordinator for The Aleit Group, taking over Aleit Music and incorporating it into her company. 

Dorette’s music talent has taken her all over the world and as performer she has been involved in many prestigious orchestras, music festivals, film and music recordings, productions, bands, chamber music concerts and celebrity performance including Micheal Buble, Andrea Bochelli, Joshua Bell, Maher Zain, Imogen Heap, Civivl Twilight, Jack Parow, Karen Zoid, Pretty Yende to name a few. 

Dorette’s newest collaboration features a feminine and edgy duo with DJ Anthea Scholtz and herself on electric cello called A N D.  As well as vocal, guitar and cello duo with the wonderfully talented singer Lize Mynhardt.
