Born in Pembrokeshire in 1985, Claire graduated with 1st class honors from the Royal College of Music in London. She was one of the first recipients of the Prince of Wales Advanced Study Awards in 2007 and 2008, recognising her as one of Wales's most outstanding young talents. From 2007 to 2011, Claire was Official Harpist to HRH the Prince of Wales and regularly performed for the Royal Family and distinguished guests at the Royal Palaces.

 

 

In 2011 she played at the Royal Wedding at Buckingham Palace for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.   Claire has performed throughout the UK at major music festivals and concert venues. She regularly appears on major TV and radio networks in the UK and America is regularly on Classic FM as a featured performer.  Her album ‘The Girl with the Golden Harp’ went straight to the top of the classical music charts on its release last year.

 

The Trust is pleased and honoured to welcome back the outstanding Claire Jones for a brilliant finale to our concert season.

 

 

"Jones plays with a beguiling lyricism and subtle range of hues and colours, she floats aloft on warm musical breezes, relishing their rippling iridescence with alluring subtlety ...with a sensitivity and panache that enchants the senses..."             Julian Haylock BBC Music Magazine
