Tom Foster

Tom began his musical education at Chetham’s School of Music, initially as a chorister at Manchester Cathedral and then as a pianist and harpsichordist. Further education took him to the University of Oxford (St Catherine’s College) where he held a Leask scholarship and graduated with first class honours in 2009, followed by the Royal Academy of Music, where he studied under the tutelage of Trevor Pinnock, graduating in 2011 with a Distinction in Performance.

He was harpsichordist for the European Union Baroque Orchestra of 2011 and held a Junior Fellowship at the Royal Northern College of Music from 2011–13, working predominantly for the opera department. Tom now plays regularly both in the UK and abroad and is in demand as a continuo player, répétiteur, assistant conductor and soloist.
