Meet Chiara

Chiara Beebe

Bookings Executive

Hi everyone! I’m Chiara and I’m thrilled to be joining the Encore team as Bookings Executive. Music has always been a huge part of my life and it’s a real privilege to be working with a group of hugely talented people who share this passion.

I grew up on the small, beautiful island of Guernsey and from a young age I played cello, piano and sang. Next stop was Manchester where I studied music, then I hopped over to Milan to study for my MSc in international business management.

I moved to London 3 years ago to fuse these passions for music and business by working at Harrison Parrott, a classical music management agency where I worked with incredibly inspiring musicians and learnt a huge amount about the international classical music industry.

I first stumbled upon Encore just after its inception a few years ago and I’ve followed it with a keen eye ever since, so it’s hugely exciting for me to become part of this growing platform and team which have the power to change the live music marketplace in a way that enriches and simplifies the lives of bookers and musicians alike!

In my spare time you can find me tap dancing, reading, cooking, composing and alternating between cute videos of dogs and my 13 month old nephew.

Here are 3 tracks that I am loving at the moment!

  1. A short but wonderful gem of a piece called Toot Nipple by John Adams played by the Attacca Quartet.
  2. Two of my favourite musicians and humans on the planet, Becca Stevens and Jacob Collier with their one off release Bathtub. Creative genius personified.
  3. For the musical theatre fans among you the Dear Evan Hanson soundtrack gives me ALL the feels. I listen to You Will Be Found at least once a week… Enjoy!
