Chloe Prendergast is a violinist based in the Netherlands. She is a core member of Holland Baroque, as well as a founding member of the Butter Quartet, a period-instrument string quartet dedicated to the world of 18th- and early 19th-century performance practice. She is co-creator of the podcast Outside the MusicBox as well as its associated concert series, both of which break down barriers surrounding conventional classical music concerts in order to reach new classical music-lovers. 

Chloe has performed across North America, the UK, and Europe with groups including English Baroque Soloists, the Handel and Haydn Society, Seattle’s Pacific Musicworks, Vox Luminis, the Henry Purcell Society of Boston, the Wrocław Baroque Orchestra, Luthers Bach Ensemble, and Le Concert d’Apollon. She has also appeared at music festivals internationally, including the Utrecht Early Music Festival, Wonderfeel, Leipzig Bachfest, the Connecticut Early Music Festival, and the Beethoven Academy at the National Forum for Music in Poland.

Chloe completed her master’s degree at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague with Kati Debretzeni and Walter Reiter and her bachelor’s degree at Willamette University, where she was a Phil Hanni scholar and studied principally with Anthea Kreston and Daniel Rouslin.
