London based American violist Cameron Howe enjoys an eclectic performing career traversing a kaleidoscope of musical genres and performance spaces. Equally at home performing contemporary music from graphic scores and playing arrangements of viol consorts on historical instruments, his output explores the outer edge of musical possibilities through accessible and evocative programming.
An advocate for equitable access to arts education, Cameron taught group classes and served as music department co-chair at Renaissance Arts Academy, a state funded performing arts charter school in central Los Angeles. The flourishing artistic community of students and teachers there inspired Cameron to pursue further training at the Royal Academy of Music in London where he studied viola with Jon Thorne and was a founding member of Salwa Quartet before graduating with first class honours in 2021 with support from the San Martino Award.
Cameron recently completed a fellowship on the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group’s NEXT course and will be joining Southbank Sinfonia for their 2022-2023 season as a viola fellow. When not freelancing with many London based ensembles and orchestras, Cameron enjoys the outdoors, cooking, and has a serious podcast addiction.
