Alice Poppleton

Despite public outcry, Alice hung up her trombone following Grade 5 success in favour of strings. After wonderful years at Bristol University, Alice completed post-graduate studies with distinction as Scholar at both RWCMD and RAM. At RAM, discovering a love for Creative Learning and Participation, she became an Open Academy Fellow. Equally dedicated to performing (with an early music specialism) and creative music-making, Alice has a diverse freelance career. She enjoys playing baroque violin/viola with ensembles including La Nuova Musica, Maggie Faultless’s Music For Awhile and Oxford Bach Soloists. An experienced concertoist and chamber musician, she is currently making inclusive historical programmes with The Canario Ensemble (Live Music Now). She is in demand as a teacher at Wimbledon High School (age 5-18), ‘Comprov’ coach at Superstrings and chamber music tutor at Baroque Week (adults) with Theresa Caudle. Alice delights when these various threads combine; inclusive chamber music projects for Brighton Early Music Festival, The Wigmore Hall and Brecon Baroque Festival and orchestrally with The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (Enlightenment Scheme 2019-2021). Alice enjoys folk fiddling, singing and playing mandolin, getting lost in a good paint by numbers and taking to the great outdoors (keeping the sheep out of the loop about her ever-growing gut string collection).
