The Marylebone Trio is a classical woodwind trio (oboe, clarinet, bassoon) formed in 2003 by postgraduate students at the Royal Academy of Music. Since then the trio has been working regularly together, touring the UK and beyond giving recitals, running education concerts and workshops and providing music for weddings and other events.

Concert performances have included well-received recitals at music festivals in Deal, Stratford-upon-Avon and Church Stretton; London venues including Kings Place and the National Portrait Gallery; and numerous music clubs and societies around England.

Away from the concert platform, the trio frequently provides music for wedding ceremonies and receptions, and other family occasions and corporate events. These have included a garden party in the presence of HRH Prince Edward, a masked ball at the Dorchester Hotel and a special event for Chiltern Railways at – of course! – Marylebone station. The trio are frequent guest entertainers on board Saga cruise ships and have travelled to countries near and far including Australia, Hong Kong and Russia. Our arrangements include classical favourites, jazz and show tunes and pop arrangements, so there should be something for all tastes!

Individually, members of the trio work for orchestras around the country including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and London Concert Orchestra, and have played on tours for celebrities including Elton John, Russell Watson, Andrea Bocelli and Katherine Jenkins.

Jemma Bausor was born in Warwickshire and studied at Wells Cathedral School and the Royal College of Music, where she won the Peter Pears Duo Prize. She was awarded the Robert Rendell Scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music, and later took up a full scholarship to study at the Encuentro Musica y Academia in Santander, Spain. Jemma is frequently in demand as a soloist; her concerto work has taken her around Europe and as far away as Thailand, and she has also recorded solo works for Boosey & Hawkes. She also works for orchestras around the UK and has spent some time playing for the West End show Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Helen James began playing clarinet through County Durham’s Music Service. She continued her studies at Trinity College of Music where she was awarded the Wilfred Hambleton Award and the Gladys Puttick Prize for improvisation. As a member of the clarinet quartet Clariphonics she won a Park Lane Group Young Artists Award, which included a performance at the Purcell Room. She is co-principal clarinet with St. Paul’s Sinfonia and also plays with other orchestras such as English Symphony Orchestra, Northern Sinfonia and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and West End shows including The Wizard of Oz and Les Misérables.

Alexandra Davidson is originally from Bournemouth, and took her first degree at Oxford University, where she held an instrumental scholarship. She went on to study at the Royal Academy of Music, where she won the Florence Woodbridge bassoon prize. Alex was co-principal bassoon of Southbank Sinfonia for the 2006 season, and performed the Weber concerto with them at the Deal Festival. She now freelances with orchestras around the country, including numerous Radio 3 broadcasts with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Ulster Orchestra. Alex is also a founder member of the bassoon quartet Reed Rage.

The trio last performed in Chipping Sodbury in March 2016.
