Harpist Katherine Thomas

Katherine Thomas was born in Pontypridd, South Wales.  She began her harp studies with Alena Roberts and then Meinir Heulyn.  In 1991 she was awarded the Blue Riband in the National Eisteddfod and in 1992 she won the Nansi Richrds Memorial Scholarship.  Katherine continued her studies at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London where she studied with David Watkins.  Following graduation in 1996 Katherine was awarded with scholarships by both the Welsh Arts Council and the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, which enabled her to continue her studies abroad with Edward Witsenburg (Holland).  In 1995 Katherine was awarded a Fellowship to attend the Aspen Music Festival, Colorado, USA, where she worked with Nancy Allen (New York Philharmonic).  During her four years at the festival, Katherine had the opportunity to work with eminent conductors from both America and Europe.  She also gave the premiere of several new chamber works for harp – including compositions by Sydney Hodkinson and Bernard Rands.  Katherine returned to Aspen to teach during the summer of 2000.  She frequently plays with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the orchestra of the Welsh National Opera. 

As well as giving solo performances, Katherine frequently collaborates with various artistes.  She performs in a duo with flautist, Diane Clark, and is also a member of the ‘Bay Trio’ – an ensemble of flute, voice and harp.
