The rockstar cellist who returned to classical music

The Electric Light Orchestra and Wizzard cellist Hugh McDowell, who has died of cancer at 65, won a scholarship to the Yehudi Menuhin School and went on to the Royal College of Music and the Guildhall.

After leaving ELO and Wizzard, the BBC reports, McDowell ‘continued to play classical music and worked on arrangements for films and theatre projects’.
