CLOUDS Harp Quartet formed in 2008 when Elfair Grug Dyer, Rebecca Mills, Esther Swift and Angelina Warburton all studied at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester with Eira Lynn Jones. Whilst studying at the RNCM they performed together in a number of exciting venues including Huddersfield contemporary Music Festival in 2007 where they premièred ‘Anthill’ by Catherine Kontz; a concert celebrating John Cage’s music in The Baltic, Gateshead and a concert under the dinosaur in the Natural History Museum in London.

Since then they have released three CDs of original works, their debut – Clouds, Water, and their most recent – Golden Light.
CLOUDS harp quartet’s music is written by Esther Swift and draws much from her background in folk music and improvisation.
CLOUDS have toured extensively around the UK to promote their CD’s, and tour venues have included the Royal Northern College of Music, St. Giles Cathedral, Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh and Whitechapel Art Gallery, London.

Following the success of their first UK tour in summer 2011, CLOUDS were invited to perform their original works at the Bridgwater Hall in Manchester as part of the CLIC Sargent Charity Christmas Concerts in 2011.

As individuals, all four are established as soloists, chamber and orchestral musicians. Notable performances include venues such as Cadogan Hall – Barbican, Royal Albert Hall – London, Symphony Hall – Birmingham, The Sage – Gateshead and St.David’s Hall, Cardiff. They have been involved in various orchestras including the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, RNCM Symphony Orchestra, Chetham’s Symphony Orchestra, Manchester Camerata and Ορχήστρα των Χρωμάτων (Athens).

On the first Monday of each month a different ensemble will perform a 45 minute concert at 1pm. Refreshments include a cup of tea and a piece of cake.

Please note: the organisers reserve the right to make late changes to performers or repertoire in the event of illness.
