As a teenager Sophie lead the Mimosa Quartet, later the Cavell Quartet, and now the Holywell Quartet, and has been the violinist in the internationally renowned Barbican Piano Trio since 2009. Sophie leads a busy freelance career working with orchestras including the London Chamber Orchestra, London Contemporary Orchestra, and invited Guest Principal Second for the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Northern Sinfonia and Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. Sophie is the leader of Albert’s Orchestra, the Royal Albert Hall’s in house orchestra, and their educational ensemble, Albert’s Band. A passionate teacher of her craft, Sophie teaches the violin and chamber music privately and also at both the Royal Academy of Music Junior Department and Eton College. In 2017 Sophie was awarded the accolade of Honorary Associate of the Royal Academy of Music.
