Catrin Finch

Described as "The Queen of Harps", Catrin has delighted audiences with her performances in the UK and worldwide. Born in Wales she was inspired to learn the harp at the age of five and her first major competition success came in 1999 winning the Lily Laskine International Harp Competition in France.

On winning the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York, Catrin went on to play in over thirty states in the USA, including the Lincoln Centre and Weill Recital Hall, Boston and Washington D.C.

Catrin is the former Royal Harpist to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales.

Catrin’s recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations was released by Deutsche Grammophon in 2009 and entered the UK Classical charts at number 1. Her versatility in different musical genres is demonstrated in her many recordings.

2012 highlights include concerts in North Carolina, New York, Hong Kong and Australia, concertos with the European Union Chamber Orchestra, the BBC NOW, premieres of two new harp concertos written for her, a tour with Malian kora player, Toumani Diabaté and various recitals.

Khorikos
Jesse Mark Peckham
KHORIKOS was founded by Mr. Jesse Mark Peckham in December 2005 in order to promote an environment for an a cappella ensemble in which artistic independence, commercial autonomy, and aesthetic excellence are paramount. KHORIKOS cultivates distinctive interpretations of musical works ranging from medieval polyphony to contemporary sound sculpture and has quickly gained a reputation for excellent programming and stunning performances. In 2008, the ensemble toured the Czech Republic as a part of the Svatovaclavsky Festival and performed the New York Premiere of Eric Whitacre's "Nox Aurumque" in 2009. In the spring of 2010, KHORIKOS released its first CD, "Modern Masters," which was nominated for Best Classical A Cappella Album for the 2011 CASA Music Awards. During the summer of 2011, KHORIKOS was invited to perform at the Kennedy Center, Avery Fisher Hall and the Wang Theater in Boston as a part of the "Songs of Life Festival" and the World Premiere of "A Melancholy Beauty."
