Rachel Douglas was for many
years managing Director of Frederick Phelps Ltd, the violin dealers in North
London. She has a B.Mus.
degree from London University. The cello is her main instrument, and she
has great experience of playing the chamber music repertoire; in addition
she has a wide knowledge of violin family instruments and their construction.
She believes passionately that
music is a living art and that the education of the next generation is essential
if it is to remain so. The aims
of the London Festival of Chamber Music are therefore close to her heart.
