Keziah Thomas

Concert Harpist

"totally original and engaging performance which bought joy to the audience" New York Concert Review

British harpist Keziah Thomas is a lively and engaging concert artist who has appeared in major venues and festivals throughout the world, including a solo tour of Japan for Aoyama Harps, and performances at the 8th, 9th and 10th World Harp Congresses in Geneva, Dublin and Amsterdam. Keziah was the winner of the 2003 London Harp Competition, the 2008 Camac Harp Competition and the 2011 Contemporary Record Society Performing Artists Competition.

In addition to her performances of the standard harp repertoire, she is dedicated to the exploration of new music and, in autumn 2010, performed the world première of a specially commissioned new work by Andy Scott in her debut recital at Carnegie Hall in New York.

Born in London, Keziah Thomas began studying the harp at the age of ten and earned an ARCM performance diploma and solo debuts at the Royal Albert Hall and the Wigmore Hall whilst still at school. Keziah gained a Bachelor’s degree from the Royal College of Music in London where she studied with Daphne Boden and was awarded the Douglas Whittaker, Jack Morrison and Marie Goossens Harp Prizes.
