Originally from Sussex, Jane Burnell (pictured) currently studies at Leeds Conservatoire with Adriana Festeu (Mezzo). In September 2021 she will begin her Masters studies at the Royal Northern College of Music.
Jane is a regular concert soloist, of which notable performances include: Mozart Exsultate Jubilate (Leeds Haydn Players); Handel Messiah (St Peters Singers); Dvorak Stabat Mater (Pontefract Choral Society); Haydn Nelson Mass (English Arts Chorale); Haydn Paukenmesse (Wakefield Festival Chorus); Bawtree Rememberance (Portsmouth Festival Chorus); Rutter Mass of the Children (Stowmarket Chorale); Brahms Requiem (Eye Bach Choir) and Mozart Requiem (Rodolfus Foundation).
Jane has participated in masterclasses with Lisette Oropesa, Richard Wiegold, Roderick Williams, Martin Pickard and Matteo Dalle Fratte. In 2019, Jane was the recipient of the Badoer Dalla Rizza Bursary for the Veneto Opera Summer School (Melofonetica), with whom she performed Zerlina (Don Giovanni), in Asolo, Italy. Other roles include: Adele (Die Fledermaus), Belinda/Second Woman (Dido and Aeneas), Mabel (cover) (Pirates of Penzance) and Fritha (The Snow Goose).
Upcoming roles include; Pamina (The Magic Flute) with Leeds Youth Opera, La Novizia (Suor Angelica) with Random Opera Company and Barbarina (Le Nozze di Figaro) with Ensemble Orquesta.
Alongside a growing solo career, Jane still has a profound love of choral music and is the Co-Founder of The Meanwood Ensemble; a classical vocal quartet based in Leeds, whose ethos is to bring classical music to new audiences by performing in unusual locations.
Mia Scott is in her final year of studying Classical with Pop violin at Leeds Conservatoire. Hailing from Edinburgh, Mia grew up surrounded by traditional Scottish music, which influences her playing to this day. Throughout her three years at Leeds Conservatoire, Mia has been aiming to fuse her classical playing with other genres, and has recently began experimenting with combining classical strings with her own production based pieces.
Mia has played with a range of different artists across different genres, from sharing the stage with jazz violinist Tim Kliphuis, to accompanying singer songwriter Jade Bird during her UK tour. In 2019 Mia was part of a documentary series by the BBC, that followed her and some other Scottish musicians, as they prepared for a concert with singer Emeli Sandé, accompanied by the Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
In the future, Mia hopes to continue playing with her bands, arranging strings and working with other artists to create crossover music.
