Catherine Hare



Flautist Catherine Hare graduated from the Master of Performance course at the Royal College of Music with Distinction in 2018, following an undergraduate degree at the same institution. Throughout her studies, Catherine was grateful for support from the John Lewis Partnership, the Arts Council of Wales and Craxton Memorial Trust.

Catherine has performed with the National Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra as part of their Student Pathway Scheme and at several UK theatres as a deputy band member for the Wicked UK Tour. She has performed solo and chamber recitals across London and South Wales; as a guest with acclaimed chamber ensemble Trio Apaches; and on baroque flute with Ex Cathedra.

In addition to her busy performance schedule, Catherine is committed to widening access for live classical music through a series of concerts and workshops. Her chamber ensemble Campana Duo, with violinist Emma Purslow, specialises in accessible performance and is a Wigmore Hall Chamber Tots ensemble for the 18/19 season. The Campana Duo are delighted to be musicians on the prestigious Live Music Now scheme, regularly performing to a diverse range of people that rarely, if ever, have the opportunity to experience live music.

A former member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and principal flute of the National Youth Orchestra of Wales, Catherine has performed in all major UK venues including the Royal Albert Hall as part of the Proms, under the baton of internationally renowned conductors including Bernard Haitink, Vasily Petrenko and Vladimir Jurowski.

Prior to taking a place at the Royal College of Music, Catherine attended Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester, where she was Head Girl in her final year.
