Lucy Humphris is one of the UK’s most exciting and versatile young trumpet artists. Her fresh and original approach seeks to widen the instrument’s repertoire and push beyond both musical and technical boundaries.

Approaching her final year at London’s Royal Academy of Music she is already establishing herself as a recognised trumpet soloist, having recently given recitals at Petworth Music Festival, Winchester Cathedral and venues in Hertford and Cambridge. This year she has given a recital at the Brighton Festival and was invited to be a featured artist performing a recital at the International Trumpet Guild’s annual conference in San Antonio.

In 2012 she won the acclaimed London Symphony Orchestra Candide award and the following year was invited on a scholarship to the Chosen Vale International Trumpet Seminar where she worked with internationally renowned trumpeters Tom Stevens, Ed Carroll, Steven Burns and John Wallace. She returned to Chosen Vale in 2016 to work with Håkan Hardenberger, Marco Blaauw and Clement Saunier.

A composer and arranger, Lucy has arranged several works, including Janacek’s In the mists and Respighi’s Ancient Airs and Dances. Her virtuoso piccolo playing of Bach’s G minor Flute Sonata can be heard on You Tube.

Harry Rylance is a 21-year-old pianist that has lived and studied in Korea, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Hungary, the US and the UK. He started learning the piano at the age of 7 and four years later entered the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest where he studied with a number of outstanding teachers including the late Zoltán Kocsis.

At 12 years old, he performed Mozart’s 4th Piano Concerto with the Liszt Chamber Orchestra in the Grand Hall of Budapest and also toured Asia as a featured soloist with the Liszt Academy Symphony Orchestra.

He relocated to the USA in 2012 where he continued his piano studies in Boston and New York. His performances in the US include numerous solo recitals and acclaimed performances of Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Piano Concerto with the Boston Civic Symphony Orchestra. He also performed live on 'From The Top', America’s nationwide classical music radio programme.

Harry moved to London in 2015 to commence a scholarship at The Royal Academy of Music, where he was awarded the Pisani Piano Award and Allan Murray Scholarship. He studies with the Academy’s Head of Piano, Joanna MacGregor.
