Matilda Lloyd, trumpeter

I feel that I have been successful in a concert if I have genuinely moved the audience by the end. Whether that’s bringing happiness and making people smile through playing fun virtuosic works such as Arban’s Carnival of Venice, or causing people to feel emotional through performing works like Deborah Pritchard’s Seven Halts on the Somme, which was written to commemorate the centenary of the First World War

Rebecca Rowe, composer

It feels as though, from the earliest I can remember, music has not just been a part of my life, it IS my life and I am fortunate to have never had to sit and decide what career I would take; I was always going to be a musician. It’s as though it’s part of your DNA; as important to you as breathing
