British-Swiss violinist NAOMI BURRELL enjoys a diverse career with a specialism in historical performance. She plays with many of the UK’s leading early music ensembles including the English Baroque Soloists, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and the Academy of Ancient Music. Since 2018, Naomi has been concertmaster of the Old Street Band, the period instrument orchestra for English Touring Opera. Beyond the UK, she also plays with ensembles in Europe. Her specialism in early music has led to performances in theatrical and dance projects at Sadler’s Wells, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, on the West End, and a residency in the Oslo Opera House with Barokksolistene.

Naomi is also a composer, and enjoys applying her creative drive to her education and facilitation work. She is a passionate workshop leader and has worked for the Royal Opera House, Spitalfields Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. With a background in Dalcroze Eurythmics (music and movement), she integrates this into her teaching as well exploring her own musical personality through movement.

Born in Southampton to a piano tuner and a bassoonist, GAVIN KIBBLE studied first at Oxford and then at the Royal Academy of Music. He now features as a cellist and viola da gamba player with many of the UK’s foremost orchestras and ensembles, including the English Concert, the Academy of Ancient Music, and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. His musical interests span six centuries and repertoire ranging from renaissance divisions to contemporary commissions.

Gavin’s career has taken him around the world, performing in venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York, the Melbourne Recital Centre, the Musikverein in Vienna and the Opera del Liceu in Barcelona. Closer to home, he is principal cellist of the Old Street Band, and he enjoys travelling the country with his cello on his back.

DAVID GERRARD performs on the harpsichord, clavichord, fortepiano and organ. Working extensively with Oxford’s Bate Collection and the Russell and Mirrey Collections in Edinburgh, he has given recitals on many significant historical keyboard instruments. In demand as a continuo harpsichordist and organist, David has performed at home and abroad with both modern and period instrument groups including Dunedin Consort, The English Concert, Irish Baroque Orchestra, Irish Chamber Orchestra, London Mozart Players, Royal Northern Sinfonia, and The Sixteen. A skilled choir trainer and conductor, he has held appointments as Organ Scholar at Canterbury Cathedral and Magdalen College, Oxford.

David graduated with double first-class honours in Music from the University of Oxford, followed by a Master’s degree in Early Keyboard Performance from the University of Edinburgh where, at present, he is undertaking doctoral research alongside work as a Tutor in the University’s Reid School of Music. With experience working as a harpsichord technician and restorer, he has begun building early keyboard instruments.
