Noëlle Weidmann was born in 1985 in Metz (France). At age five she began to play the piano and followed this a year later with cello.

She furthered her study at the Prins Claus Conservatorium, Groningen with Jan-Ype Nota and Michel Strauss graduating with a perfect 10. In May 2006 she was appointed principal cellist of the Noord Nederlands Orkest. In August of the same year she was awarded the prize of the Stichting Labberte-Hoedemaker and in September was admitted to the post graduate course at the CNSM Paris.

She has performed with renowned musicians such as Joseph Silverstein, Michel Strauss, Vladimir Mendelssohn, Jean Claude Vanden Eyden and Gil Sharon.
