Born in the North East of England, Miranda Dale had violin lessons in London with David Martin and Nina Martin before gaining a scholarship at sixteen to study with Howard Davis at the Royal Academy of Music. Piano Trio courses in the Banff Centre of fine Arts, Canada, preceded her two years’ tuition at Indiana University where her solo studies with Franco Gulli were complemented by coaching for her scholarship quartet by Rostislav Dubinsky.
Miranda lives in London but her solo, chamber, educational and orchestral commitments take her worldwide. Alongside her position as Principal second violin with the Britten Sinfonia (which includes concerto appearances and involvement with the award-winning Britten Sinfonia at Lunch Series), she is violinist with the Music of Renown Ensemble and has been Guest Principal with the Philharmonia Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera and English Chamber Orchestra.
A valued coach at the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music in New Hampshire, she has also appeared as violinist with the Apple Hill Chamber Players on tours throughout the United States and on their “Playing for Peace ” missions in the Middle East. She has recorded a CD of British light music with her Ananda Piano Trio (based in the US), which has performed in festivals from Texas to California.
Miranda is grateful to the Royal Academy of Music, where she regularly coaches, for making her an Associate in recognition of her contribution to the music profession.
