Kate Conway studied baroque cello and viol with Jonathan Manson at the Royal Academy of Music, after reading Classics at Jesus College, Cambridge.

A keen chamber musician, she is a member of Ensemble Molière, who are the current BBC New Generation Baroque Ensemble, and Chelys Consort of Viols, who made their debut at the Wigmore Hall for Dame Emma Kirkby’s 70th birthday celebrations.

Kate has played with the English Baroque Soloists and English Touring Opera, and was selected for the Handel House Talent Scheme. She was twice a recipient of the RAM Nancy Nuttall Ensembles Prize, and now coaches the viol consort at the RAM.
