Acclaimed mezzo-soprano Sophia Grech has enjoyed a busy International career over the last 20 years having graduated from the LRCM in 1995. She is described by Decca Records as ‘an excellent artist’, American Fanfare as a ‘singer with rich tonal shading’ and The Sunday Times as ‘an artist who delivers without effort, displaying inner sensitivity’. Travelling extensively, Sophia has gained considerable acclaim, which has led to a number of awards, media interviews, recordings and countless performances in leading concert halls, opera houses and international festivals worldwide. She has also collaborated with many artists including celebrities Judi Dench and Charles Dance. Sophia has sung principle roles with various opera companies and is described by the Royal Opera as ‘a leading vocalist of her generation’.

World-renowned baroque trumpeter Crispian Steele-Perkins was described by Virtuoso magazine as ‘the world’s leading exponent of the Baroque trumpet’, particularly when heard in duet with some of the world’s greatest singers such as Kiri Te Kanawa, Emma Kirkby and Bryn Terfel. He has also recorded with popular artists including Led Zeppelin, Kate Bush, Lulu, Cliff Richard, Bob Geldof and Harry Secombe. As a soloist Crispian’s purity of tone and artistic subtlety have received widespread critical acclaim for more than four decades. As well as a famous baroque trumpeter, he can also be heard on many film scores including James Bond and the long running TV series Antiques Roadshow. Crispian Steele-Perkins is indeed one of the world’s leading trumpeters.
