Gary Pomeroy


Born and raised in Durban, South Africa, Gary took inspiration from his parents who busked country music at flea markets on the weekend, and started violin lessons aged five. He took to the viola as a teenager and was lucky enough to become an ABRSM International Scholar at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, UK. There he enjoyed five years of guidance in solo and chamber music. He is the violist of the Heath Quartet who have been awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society Young Artist award, made live recordings of the complete Tippett and Bartok Quartets to critical acclaim and continue to build on their 20yr relationship.
