Biography

Founded in 1974 by flautist Peter Harrison and harpsichordist John Treherne, Concert Royal celebrated forty years of early music making in 2014. Playing period instruments and performing in historically-informed style, Rachel, Peter and John recreate the elegant sound worlds of the baroque and classical eras.

Concert Royal presents unique performances of music from the eighteenth century drawing room in an entertaining and informative way. The ensemble has given hundreds of recitals in every corner of the UK, performing extensively for The National Trust, in festivals and for music and arts societies, in churches, schools and arts centres. Concert Royal has toured in Europe, the USA and for the British Council in South America.
