Celebrated singer Carris Jones brings together music by female composers, exploring themes of love, joy, grief and betrayal.

In conjunction with our display First Amongst Equals, discover the work of two innovative 20th century composers, Rebecca Clarke and Madeline Dring, alongside the music of Judith Weir (the first female Master of the Queen’s Musicke), and Cheryl Frances-Hoad, who is making waves in the world of contemporary music.

Carris Jones studied at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge and the Royal Academy of Music. In 2017, she became the first woman to join the Choir of St Paul’s Cathedral. On the operatic stage, Jones has performed and covered roles at English National Opera, Iford Arts, Garsington Opera and Bury Court Opera.

Performing alongside Jones is Libby Burgess, a prize-winning pianist dedicated to the fields of song and chamber music, collaborating regularly with some of the finest singers and instrumentalists of her generation. She is the Artistic Director of New Paths, a major new festival of concerts and outreach events in Yorkshire, founded in 2016.
