Our Artistic Director

Tanya Barringer – artistic director and leader


Born in Texas, but raised in England, Tanya Barringer has performed extensively here in the UK and the USA.  She studied at the JRAM under Howard Davies, before continuing her A level studies at Chethams School of Music under When Zhou Li.

After Chethams, Tanya returned to Texas where she completed her Bachelors Degree with highest honors in Violin Performance at the University of Houston, Moores School of Music.  She then moved to New York City to complete a Masters Degree in film studies at NYU and stayed in NYC where she worked in film production for over ten years.

Tanya returned to England in the late autumn of 2014 and quickly landed into the music scene in London and keeps busy playing with a wide variety of groups covering chamber music through to performances of Wagner’s Ring Cycle. Through happenstance she has now left the film industry and instead is writing Brexit related policy for the Food and Drink Manufacturing Industry and is happy to chat about it if you’re interested!
