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

Persephone has been leading the orchestra with style and panache for the last two years. Born in the USA, she studied at Juilliard and gained degrees in English and law before moving to London to study at the Guildhall School of Music. Hailed as a ‘rising star of the baroque violin’, Persephone is leader, soloist and occasional director of the Brandenburg Baroque Soloists and Charivari Agréable and is guest leader with Florilegium and the Feinstein Ensemble. Her recent featured appearances include the Globe Theatre’s production of L’Ormindo and the Glorious Georges festival at Kensington Palace. Persephone is a member of the Academy of Ancient Music, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Gabrieli Consort and regularly presents gigs with her chamber group Gut Instinct.
