The Cellists of Otago is directed by Dr Heleen du Plessis and comprises University of Otago students, Dunedin Symphony Orchestra cellists, high school pupils and community cellists. They delight audiences with the variety of their innovative programmes and have won praise from audiences and critics alike.

Reviewers have described the Cellists of Otago as as having “rich sonority”, and an “intriguing and appealing sound” which “has quickly and worthily gained wide recognition ... and in 2016 the Wanaka Mirror described their music as ...delightful, captivating, enthralling and a treat.
Cellists of Otago and Rebecca Ryan have chosen songs from well-known operas, musicals and cello repertoire including Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise and one of the most popular works for cello ensemble and soprano, Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasilieras No. 5.
