Eliette Harris is a British violinist from Brighton. As a soloist she has been invited to play masterclasses with Boris Belkin, Mauricio Fuks and Yair Kless. Eliette performs with Manchester Camerata and has featured on their past two CD releases with Gabor Takacs-Nagy and Jean Efflam Bavouzet with the Chandos record label.
Eliette was honoured to study with Yossi Zivoni during her undergraduate and continues studies this year with Krzysztof Śmietana at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where she holds a scholarship.
Eliette also performed as part of the BBC Philharmonic’s PES Scheme and joined them for a series of concerts last year. Chamber music is an incredibly important part of her musical life.
Eliette has played with the Larisa Trio for five years and joined the Arva Quartet a year ago. Recent chamber music performances include recitals as part of the Residart Festival in Italy and Orlando Festival in Holland with the Larisa Trio, and recitals in St Pancras Clock Tower a residency at Woldingham School with the Arva Quartet.
Growing up in Brighton, Eliette lead the Brighton Youth Orchestra (BYO). BYO played a crucial role in her musical education, inspiring her to pursue music as a career. Music Outreach is incredibly important to Eliette, and since leaving the ensemble she has tutored young students across the country both individually and as a chamber music tutor. Eliette is honoured to receive scholarships from the RMNEF, Zetland Foundation and Westdene Trust, and to play on a wonderful Leoni violin from the Guildhall’s collection.
“I absolutely love teaching and following musical progression of my students. I work closely with my students to build a strong technical facility that allows for freedom of musical expression.”
