  1. I am one half of a flute and guitar duo based in North London and I wonder whether we would be of interest to you for your concert series.
    Below is some information about us. Our program at present, explores music of a distinctively Latin-American/Iberian flavour and includes pieces such as;

    Histoire du Tango – Astor Piazzolla
    Entr’acte – Jacques Ibert
    Tres Pieces – Eugene Bozza

    Please do let me know if there is any more information that you may require.

    Yours sincerely,

    Simon Davies

    The London Flute & Guitar Duo
    The LFG duo is a vibrant young ensemble which explores original music for flute
    and guitar, ranging from Piazzolla to Giuliani and from Baroque to
    Contemporary.

    Although recently formed, these musicians have a wealth of chamber experience to
    their names, playing at venues such as St Martin in the Fields, St James’
    Piccadilly, St Johns Smith Square, Lauderdale House, The Forge in Camden and
    many other venues outside London.
    They are both classical headline artists on Cunard liners Queen Mary 2 and Queen
    Victoria.

    Claire Overbury is 28 and is an up and coming soloist and orchestral player in London. She has just completed a year as one of two principal flutes in the orchestral academy Southbank Sinfonia and now freelances for orchestras in and around London. She performs solo recitals around the UK and is a Classical performer on cruise lines such as Cunard and Crystal. In addition to her performance commitments, she teaches flute at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls, King Alfred’s School and Mill Hill School in London.
    Claire has a Postgraduate Diploma in Performance, with Distinction, from Trinity College of Music, London, where she also received the Worshipful Company of Musicians’ Silver Medal Award for 2004. Prior to this Claire gained an upper second class honours degree in Music from Christ Church, Oxford University, where she held an instrumental exhibition for three years.
    During 2005, Claire was awarded the second prize in the Anglo-Czechoslovak competition and also gained a place on the Making Music ‘Arthur and Gwyneth Harrison Professional Development Programme’. In 2006 she won the Lions District Flute Competition and was a finalist in the Eastbourne Young Soloist Competition. She has recently been short-listed for the Park Lane Group concert series with her piano duo partner, Elspeth Wyllie.

    Simon Davies studied at the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music before receiving his Honours Degree at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester. He performs regularly in The Arada Guitar Duo, and their recent release for Landor Records, ‘Mediterranean’ has received glowing reviews from publications such as International Record Review and Gramophone magazine. The duo has also performed on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM and in some of the countries finest chamber music venues. Performing with the Royal Shakespeare Company “band”, Simon has most recently appeared in the West End run of “Romeo and Juliet” and the critically acclaimed “Venus & Adonis”.
    As a soloist, Simon has won numerous competitions. He represented the U.K. in the European Young Musicians’ Concert and in 2011, was asked to perform at the London International Guitar Festival. He has performed in many of the U.K’s leading recital halls including the Purcell Rooms and Lauderdale House. In addition to his performing career, Simon is guitar tutor at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls and is an examiner for Trinity Guildhall Music.

    • Thanks for your interest – as I’m sure you are aware, there is a vast supply of excellent musicians – especially in London.
      I am currently working on the programme for 2012, and will be in touch if I think you can help.
      Best wishes, Clive Evans
