Bio

Mared Emyr is a classically trained harpist who was awarded the Stoutzker Award 2020 for the Most Exceptional Musician at RWCMD and several international competition awards, including the USA International Harp Competition, she has been commended for her musical sensitivity and ability to draw the audience into her world.

She is inspired to create original soundscapes by participants in her creative music workshops in primary and secondary schools and also in hospital and hospice settings and with people experiencing homelessness and severe psychiatric/educational/additional learning needs.

She has played as guest soloist with the RPO Concert Orchestra under the baton of Patrick Hawes to a full house at Norwich Cathedral and has worked extensively with living composers to bring their work to life, most recently recording Hollie Harding’s ‘Summertide’ as part of the Royal Academy of Music 200 pieces project.

‘It was so amazing, unexpected and emotional. It was lovely to have the music brought to us. We even managed to get in a few requests! We’re so grateful. It’s lovely to have something to take you away from everything, and it has meant the world to mum.’ – visitors at Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice
