About Heather

I am an experienced freelance Violinist/Violist based in Manchester. Available for function/session work. Feel free to get in touch!
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Originally from Scotland, Heather MacLeod started playing the violin at the age of 6. She graduated with a Bachelor of Music with Honours from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and has recently finished her Master’s degree from the Royal Northern College of Music. Heather is very passionate about all genres of music and this has led her to playing in a number of solo, chamber, orchestral, traditional and band circumstances. Recent engagements include performing Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto with the Glasgow Orchestral Society, a solo performance at the New Music North West Festival, guest leader of Stockport Symphony Orchestra, chamber music recital at the Rannoch Music Society, recording alongside the Young Traditional Musician of the Year Rona Wilkie and performing with artists such as Evanescence, Twin Atlantic, Gungor, Susan Boyle as well as a T in the Park press launch. She is an avid viola and piano player and enjoys arranging traditional music in her spare time. Heather is currently freelancing in Manchester and holds a position at Chetham's School of Music and The Music Place. She is the co-owner of Dahlia Music alongside her sister Kirsty.

Heather is a wonderful player, very professional and supportive. She arrived at the agreed time rehearsed and performed music to a high standard. Also a very good sight reader and a pleasant person. I would definitely recommend her to others and look forward to working with her again n the future.
