Rebecca Harris - Violin

Meet Rebecca (violin)

Performing on both modern and period instruments, Rebecca’s career is a love letter to the violin’s rich past and present, with a concert calendar that includes solo, chamber and orchestral work, repertoire from 1600 to the present day, and venues from concert halls to cabarets. Rebecca’s artistic life is grounded in her obsession with style and her fascination with history. Rebecca has a special passion for working with singers, which has led to collaborations and recordings with songwriter Andrew Lipke, Choral Arts Philadelphia and The Crossing.

For Rebecca, the string quartet represents the ideal of four musicians creating something that is more than the sum of its parts, and she is excited to celebrate the dawn of the genre as a member of The Franklin Quartet. Born and raised in the United Kingdom, Rebecca studied first in the idyllic Somerset countryside at Wells Cathedral School, and later at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, with interludes at the Britten Pears Young Artist Program. An avid reader, she never goes anywhere without a good book, loves to paint, draw and make things, and doesn’t miss an opportunity to laugh, as you can tell from some of our pictures!
