Lauren and Amy first met in Scottish Opera, where Amy is Principal Oboe and Lauren Third Horn. Sharing a great love of chamber music, they were joined by Hebba, a recent graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland who also has extensive chamber music experience.
Amy is an award-winning oboist and has guested as Principal Oboe with all of the major Scottish-based orchestras, as well as many around the UK. She is a lecturer in Oboe at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Lauren freelances regularly throughout Scotland with orchestras including the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Scottish Ballet. Prior to her position in Scottish Opera, she worked as Principal Horn in the Mittelsaechsische Philharmonie in Germany. Hebba is in demand as a solo and collaborative pianist, working with the National Youth Choir of Scotland, Scottish Opera and was recently selected for the London Sinfonietta Academy. Hebba has performed as part of many music festivals across the globe, including the Aurora Chamber Music Festival in Sweden, the Lammermuir Festival, Forum Musikae Academia International de Música Madrid and at the BBC Proms with the BBC SSO/NYOS.
As a trio they, have a vast range of experience and take great pleasure in bringing the lesser-known works for horn, oboe and piano to audiences.
