Specialising in Chamber Music,
Poppy performs extensively throughout the UK and Europe
With the Oriole Quartet, she has performed at the Barnes Festival, the Clifton International Music Festival and in Carmona, Spain. In 2014 Poppy formed the Temple Ensemble, a mixed Chamber Ensemble which expands and contracts according to the chosen repertoire. The group have performed at the Wigmore Hall, Gloucester Cathedral and at the Pastel en Scène and Marcilhac Festivals in France. Each year Poppy organises an eight-concert tour for the group in the South of France. This year Poppy will be playing the Mozart and Brahms Quintet’s with the ensemble in such prestigious venues as the Conques Abbey and at the Marcilhac-sur-Célé Festival.
Poppy is also in much demand as a soloist and orchestral musician. She is looking forward to playing Malcolm Arnold’s Second Concerto with conductor Mathew Taylor in December 2019, the Mozart Concerto at the Clifton International Music Festival in 2021 and giving recitals at the Marlborough Summer School and St Martin-in-the-Fields. She plays regularly as the Principal Clarinet with various orchestras around London including the Barnes Festival Orchestra and the Nonclassical Orchestra.
Poppy is a musicianship teacher at the Junior Royal Academy of Music and she also teaches clarinet and chamber music at Bradfield College.
Poppy is the Artistic Director of the Berkshire Chamber Music Festival and Artist in Residence of the Clifton International Music Festival 2021.
