Who We Are

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 perform a vast array of repertoire - from family favourites to contemporary works by John Cage and Steve Reich. 

Since 2015 they have gone from strength to strength performing recitals all over the UK as well as delivering interactive family concerts inspiring countless children (and adults) with their performances, laid- back presentation and passion for music.

"This was all about the enthusiasm of these four young Welsh-trained wizards ... producing a stunning result that truly emphasised that percussion is not just about drums – and about noise.'"

Quartet19 is passionate about outreach work delivering workshops in schools and community settings as well as working closely with groups such as Children's Musical Adventures and ODuo helping to inspire as many people as they can with music. They are also a recognised Live Music Now ensemble working to make music accessible to everyone.
