Jemima Phillips is an award winning, professional concert harpist. During her tenure as Official Harpist to the Prince of Wales, she performed at the reception hosted by Her Majesty the Queen for the London bid for the 2012 Summer Olympics and premiered the new Royal Golden Harp at the Llangollen International Festival.
She was the only musician to play at the royal wedding reception for Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall and was featured in the very first concert to be recorded in the ballroom of Buckingham Palace.
Graduating from the Royal College of Music with a BMus(Hons) and an MMus(RCM) she also gained Fellowships of Trinity College, London and the Royal Schools of Music.
Versatile and innovative Jemima’s extensive repertoire ranges from the classical to the contemporary, from improvised sound loops to traditional song composition utilising both acoustic and electric harps.
She has performed extensively throughout the UK as a solo recitalist and freelance artist with international performances in Japan, France, Russia, Switzerland, Spain and the USA.
After her private life became headline news Jemima took a short break from a gruelling concert schedule. In 2016 she completed an MA in Music Therapy at The University of the West of England (UWE) and began a programme of community and outreach work in care homes, SEN schools, hospitals, hospices and prisons.
She has since returned to the stage and currently divides her time between live performance, teaching and musical experimentation in her new home studio.
