We have much pleasure in announcing that Persephone Gibbs has accepted the post of Acting Artistic Director of Devon Baroque.

Persephone has been leading the orchestra with style and panache for the last two years. Hailed as a "rising star of the baroque violin”, Persephone was born in America, gaineding degrees in English at Yale and law at Columbia before moving to London to study at the Guildhall School of Music. She leads, performs solos with and occasionally directs the Brandenburg Baroque Soloists, Charivari Agréable Sinfonie and the Temple Players. She is also  a member of the Academy of Ancient Music, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Gabrieli Consort and plays frequently with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra.
