Elin Taylor

Elin Taylor is a first-class music graduate from Cardiff University, having received a Merit scholarship to further her studies and achieve Distinction at Masters level. A seasoned orchestral musician, Elin has performed extensively in England and Wales, and for international audiences in Germany, France, Belgium and China.

At present, she performs with London-based Ashdown Sinfonia, North Wales Camerata and the North Wales Philharmonia. She has also been invited to perform as soloist for both the Cardiff University String and Concert orchestras.

Elin’s enthusiasm for Chamber music in particular led her to establish the Claret String Quartet in 2016. The quartet makes a conscious effort to inspire the next generation of musicians by performing in schools. Having performed at the British Junior Academy of Brussels and at events for Cardiff-based charity ‘Making Music Changing Lives’. Also as a founding member of the North Wales Camerata, Elin works towards raising funds to support music services in Wales through performances. The Camerata regularly donate to the North Wales Youth Orchestra and National Youth Orchestra of Wales, both of which Elin is a former member. The positive social experience Elin has gained through music performance has left her passionate about music development in communities, and of course the sustenance of youth music for future generations, leading her to teaching.
