Fellow in Harpsichord/Continuo
Originally from Bath, Claire Williams studied piano, harpsichord, fortepiano and clavichord at the Royal College of Music in London. She subsequently completed a Master’s degree at Trinity College of Music, studying harpsichord and chamber organ with James Johnstone. Since graduating, she has worked with a wide range of ensembles in the UK and abroad, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, Essex Baroque Orchestra, and the City of London Sinfonia. She is a regular member of Musica Secreta, Flautotonic, and Baroque Encounter.
Claire has performed in venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, St John's Smith Square, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Cadogan Hall, Southwark Cathedral, Wells Cathedral, Bolivar Hall, Fairfield Halls, 1901 Arts Club, Fenton House, Brighton Dome, and at events including Manchester, Bath, and Chelsea Festivals, Brighton Early Music Festival, East Cork Early Music Festival, London Handel Festival, Spitalfields Music, and the Suffolk Villages Festival. She has also been a guest artist at the Latitude Festival, Triora Musica in Italy, and Dartington International Summer School.
Alongside her demanding performance schedule, Claire finds time to teach the piano and harpsichord, and regularly gives recitals at the Handel House Museum. She can also occasionally be found shark diving, as a qualified PADI Open Water Scuba Diver.
Claire is delighted to have been awarded the Junior Fellowship in Harpsichord/Continuo at the Royal College of Music for 2016-17.
