WHO WE ARE
Quartet19 was formed in 2015 by Luke Baxter, Iolo Edwards, James Harrison and Jemma Sharp while studying 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 O Duo (Owen Gunnell and Oliver Cox), the quartet has produced family concerts and workshops both within college and more recently performed with Owen at the Summer Cambridge Music Festival.
Based in Cardiff, Quartet19 are proud also members of Live Music Now Wales. They enjoy working closely with the organisation to deliver interactive concerts in care homes and schools across Wales.
