Recital by the Eos Duo followed by Afternoon Tea
The Eos Duo (Laurel Saunders – clarinet and Angharad Huw –harp) will be performing a one hour recital in the beautiful setting the Yellow Broom Restaurant. This will be followed by a delicious afternoon tea. This popular event sells out quickly every year.
Laurel Saunders – Clarinet
Starting out as a clarinettist in the West of England Youth Orchestra, based in Bradford-On-Avon in Wiltshire, Laurel is currently studying at the Royal Northern College of Music, principally under the tutelage of Gabor Varga.
She has participated in a diverse selection of concerts ranging from charity and retirement home performances with solo and ensemble playing to performing with larger groups such as the Manchester Video Game Orchestra, The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Scotland and RNCM Wind Orchestra. She also has a passion for working with composers, resulting in collaborative premieres of works by Aaron Breeze and Zakiya Leeming.
Angharad Huw – Harp
Welsh harpist Angharad Huw is currently in her third year at the Royal Northern College of Music, studying with Anne-Marie O’Farrell. She started to play the harp when she was nine years old under Ceinwen Roberts’s tuition. In 2017, she began studying with Eira Lynn Jones at Junior RNCM, where she was awarded the Rotary Prize for Performance and the John Ellis Memorial Prize during her two years of study.
During her time at the RNCM, Angharad has performed with the RNCM Symphony, Opera, Wind, and Brand New Orchestras, and established the Tegid Duo with harpist Jess Hughes, and the Eos Duo with clarinettist Laurel Saunders. She is due to perform with the RNCM Harp Ensemble at the World Harp Congress in Cardiff.
Over the past few years, Angharad has performed in numerous concerts across North Wales, Cheshire, Merseyside, and Greater Manchester as a soloist, ensemble player, and orchestral musician. She has performed in both Edinburgh and Wales International Harp Festivals, and was awarded second place in the Urdd National Eisteddfod and the National Eisteddfod of Wales.
