Kyle True began his musical studies in voice at a young age and began playing the cello at the age of 9.  At age 17 he decided to give up singing to focus his time solely on the cello.  At that time he also began studying cello with then Associate Principal Cellist of the Boise Philharmonic, Samuel Smith.  True played in the Boise Philharmonic Youth Orchestra from 2007 to 2010 and served as principal cellist for the 2009-2010 season.  In the summer of 2010 he participated in the Summer Music Institute fellowship program at The Kennedy Center where he studied with National Symphony Orchestra cellist, David Teie.  True auditioned for and took a substitute cello position with the Boise Philharmonic in 2010 after beginning his studies at The College of Idaho where he continued instruction with Smith.  True served as principal cellist of The College of Idaho Sinfonia from 2010 to 2014 and was a member of The College of Idaho String Quartet from 2011 to 2014.

Since leaving the College of Idaho, True has taught private cello lessons in the Boise metropolitan area and has participated in a number of music groups including Beethoven’s Disciples String Quartet and the Boise Cello Collective.  True has also served as principal cellist for the Treasure Valley Millenial Choirs and Orchestra winter 2015 and spring 2016 concerts as well as performing Handel’s Messiah with an auditioned chamber choir under the direction of Dr. Brent Wells, Director of Choral Activities at The College of Idaho.
