Exploration of medieval, Renaissance, and baroque harp repertoire, along with performance practice research, is a passion for native Texan Becky Baxter. Ms. Baxter’s harp studies and career began during her undergraduate years at the University of Houston with Beatrice Rose, while she simultaneously obtained her bachelor’s degree in organ performance. She continued her studies at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University but her greatest inspirations in early music came from her studies in Milan, Italy, under harp teacher Mara Galassi. Ms. Baxter has recorded on the Dorian (now Sono Luminus) and Naxos labels as a soloist and with groups such as Chatham Baroque and Catacoustic Consort. In addition to touring for concerts and teaching at workshops all over the nation, she loves being a part of the thriving early music scene and performing with Ars Lyrica and Mercury Baroque in Houston, her home of over 48 years. She is also Music Director at All Saints Episcopal Church in Stafford, Texas.
