The first Music Arran concert for the new year and the new decade will feature the talents of three musicians who are all well known in their own individual rights but also as the talented Trio Volant.

Trio Volant, which means Flying Trio, will be performing on Saturday January 18, at 1.30pm in Brodick Hall as well as at Shiskine Primary School on Friday January 17, at 2pm, where the children, and any parents or grandparents, will enjoy a music workshop.

The trio is Tom Evans on clarinet, Beatrice Hubble on oboe and Richard Beards on bassoon.

Trio Volant was formed in 2010 while all the members were studying at the Royal Northern College of Music. The trio regularly give formal recitals and lunchtime concerts in and around Manchester, the North West and nationally from The Isle of Arran to Newport to Devon. They particularly enjoy the opportunity to perform the lesser known reed trio chamber music repertoire.

The trio were awarded the Dorothy Parkinson Memorial Award for Young British Musicians 2017 and are currently Recommended and Selected Artists for Making Music 2019-2020.

The individual members have a wealth of solo, chamber music and orchestral experience between them. Richard is a busy freelance bassoonist and is in demand throughout the North West having completed his postgraduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music. Bea enjoys a varied career as an animateur and freelance oboist. Tom divides his time between instrumental teaching, performing as a freelance clarinetist and examining for Trinity College London. The group’s members have worked with The Halle, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, Sinfonia ViVa, Raymond Gubbay’s Manchester Concert Orchestra, Northern Chamber Orchestra.
