Charlie McClure

Although originally from Wales, Charlie studied violin at Idyllwild Arts Academy in the mountains of California, receiving lessons from Todor Pelev. While there she was lucky enough to have masterclasses with violinists such as Midori Gōto and Hilary Hahn.

On returning to the UK, Charlie has studied further with Itzhak Rashkovsky and David Adams. She has performed in leadership roles extensively with Sinfonia Cymru and the European Union Youth Orchestra.

Currently, Charlie works with some of the world’s leading orchestras and ensembles including the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the London-based Her Ensemble. She enjoys performing in a wide range of musical settings from chamber music to film sessions, rock and pop scores to Opera. She resides in Wiltshire, where she has two ex-racehorses and a big friendly dog called “Boots.”
