Mary Reid

With a varied musical appetite, Mary performs as a soloist, chamber musician, orchestral harpist, and in the community. Solo performances include at Wigmore Hall, Ripon Cathedral, Isle of Arran Music, the Bowes Museum, Holkham Hall, Hove Music Society, and the Brantwood Young Artist Series as well as at the Moscow Russian Harp Festival. Mary has been concerto soloist with the Kingston Chamber Players, the Dacorum Symphony Orchestra, the Thames Consort, St Cecilia Orchestra in Yorkshire and the Vacation Chamber Orchestra playing works by Handel, Debussy, Mozart and Rodrigo.

Freelance orchestral work has recently included performances with the Royal Opera House, Opera North, the Gabrieli Consort, the Hallé, London Mozart Players, English Touring Opera, CBSO, Northern Ballet, RSNO at the Edinburgh International Festival and at the BBC Proms.

With a passion for chamber music, Mary has recently started giving recitals with soprano Camilla Jeppeson as one half of the Voce47 duo and founded Zamira Duo with violinist Tansy Garrod. She performed alongside Christopher Hogwood in a Gresham College lecture-recital, and has featured several times in the Royal Academy's Tuesday Chamber Music Series.

Mary also loves performing to those who might otherwise never hear classical music and performs through the Live Music Now scheme, founded by Yehudi Menuhin, giving participatory performances for adults in dementia care homes and children with special education needs and is also a Concordia Foundation artist.

Mary gained both her MA in Performance with Distinction and her Bachelor of Music (1st Class Hons) from the Royal Academy of Music, studying with her harp professor of ten years Professor Emerita Skaila Kanga. Before studying with Professor Kanga, Mary studied with Marcia Dickstein (Los Angeles), Sarah Bullen (Chicago) and Sophie Askew (Edinburgh).
