Winsome Evans

Winsome Evans (born 26 October 1941) is an Associate Professor of music at the University of Sydney and one of Australia's premier early music specialists. She received a Bachelor of Music (Honours) degree in composition from the University of Sydney, where her lecturers included Peter Sculthorpe. In addition to her activities as a professional harpsichordist, composer, and arranger, she is perhaps best known for her role as director of the Renaissance Players, one of Australia's best known early music ensembles.

In 1980 she was awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Honours List and the NSW Jaycees’ Award for services to music, and in 1985 the Order of Australia medal for services to music.

She was featured, along with her colleague Anne Boyd, in the documentary "Facing the Music".
