Rebecca Bell is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, where she received her Masters with Distinction, and was awarded a DipRAM Prize for outstanding performance in the final recital. She was subsequently awarded the prestigious ‘Enlightenment’ Scholarship to continue her studies on baroque violin, with Rachel Podger and Pavlo Beznosiuk.

Rebecca enjoys a wide variety of work with both modern and baroque ensembles, including the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the English Concert, the Sixteen, the Kings Consort, The Hanover Band and the London Mozart Players. She is regularly invited to guest lead ensembles at festivals and concert series across the UK, and very much enjoys the opportunities for creative input that this brings.

As an in-demand chamber musician, Rebecca performs regularly with her award-winning quartet, The Bell Quartet, as well as being a founding member of The Nuevo Tango Quintet, with whom she has given sell out concerts across London and featured on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’ with Sean Rafferty.

Outside of her musical endeavours, Rebecca enjoys crochet, gardening, and life in the South Downs where she lives with her partner Rhys, daughter Rosalie and son Reuben.
