Quartet 19- Family Concert by The Royal College
Sunday, May 27
3:00 pm - 4:45 pm
Quartet19 was formed in 2015 by Luke Baxter, Iolo Edwards, James Harrison and Jemma Sharp – four students at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD). They have delivered concerts across the UK to a diverse range of audiences and performed a vast array of repertoire – from family favourites to contemporary works by John Cage and Steve Reich.
Quartet19 is a recognised group as part of the RWCMD ‘Hire a Performer’ scheme meaning they are promoted by the college to provide performances in the community for various occasions. In addition to this, the quartet also work with a number of composers from the college who continue to write exciting new music for the group to perform.
The quartet works closely with Children’s Musical Adventures. This is a company which aims to inspire as many young children as possible to engage in music – through workshops in schools as well as relaxed family concerts. Both of these the quartet thoroughly enjoys being a part of.
Whilst collaborating with Owen Gunnell (one half of O-Duo) the quartet has produced family concerts and workshops both within college and recently at the Cambridge Summer Music Festival.
Based in Cardiff, Quartet19 are proud members of Live Music Now Wales.
