Cerberus is a flexible ensemble based in Cambridge with a core of players that form a piano trio. Last year they performed Beethoven's Triple Concerto in Cambridge with the K. 239 Chamber Orchestra at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge.

 

Gwen Owen Robinson studied the violin with Rafael Sobolevsky at Syracuse University in New York. She was a graduate of Charles Castleman's Quartet Program before reading Natural Sciences as an Instrumental Award holder at Cambridge University.  Since then she has had a varied career in the UK and California before returning to live and play chamber music in the Cambridge area.

Veronica Henderson studied music at St Catharine's College, Cambridge, and then specialised in the cello at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Solo work has taken her to Switzerland and Belgium, particularly with the choir, Cambridge Voices, with whom she recorded and gave the first performances of Carl Rütti's "Lieder der Liebe" in 1994. This summer she is performing Shostakovich's First Cello Concerto with Letchworth Sinfonia.

Jill Morton enjoys a highly successful career as soloist, chamber musician and teacher. Her performances have taken her throughout Britain and across Europe and have received critical acclaim. Since making her professional debut, she has performed in all the major concert halls throughout Britain and has been heard on BBC Radio 2's Friday Night is Music Night as soloist with the BBC Concert Orchestra. Jill currently holds the position of Head of Keyboard at the Perse School in Cambridge. She has been invited to give masterclasses at universities and specialist music schools throughout Britain and is also becoming recognised as a competition adjudicator.
