Charlotte Rowan –biography

Charlotte Rowan has gained recognition for her virtuosity and masterful command of her instrument.

Born in Scotland, Charlotte was invited at age 16, to study at the Peabody Conservatory, Baltimore, USA. In her first year she was selected as Concertmistress of the Undergraduate Orchestra, subsequently performing under the conductor and pianist Leon Fleischer. Whilst studying in the US she was invited to perform for Justice of the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor, for Baltimore Chamber Music Society and at the Smithsonian Museum for the Washington Performing Arts Series. 

Upon graduating with high honours she now performs extensively as a recitalist with pianist, Charlotte Stevenson. From their recitals in some of the country’s finest cathedrals – Ely, Chichester, Winchester, Ripon, Chelmsford, Lincoln, Manchester – to their critically acclaimed festival appearances including Honiton, Harwich, Edinburgh, Crail and Buckingham, their refreshing approach to concert programming and stylistic interpretations have resonated strongly with audiences and attracted new listeners to the violinistic genre.

As a concerto soloist, Charlotte has performed with orchestras in both America and Britain. She has an extensive concerto repertoire recently performing concerti by Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Dvorak, Glazunov and Elgar and will be performing the Bruch Violin Concerto with Leeds Symphony Orchestra in October later this year.

Charlotte currently plays a German violin by Fridolin Rusch of Memmingen, Bavaria.
