Fiona graduated from the Royal College of Music and with a Masters degree from Yale University, USA. She has given numerous solo recitals throughout the country, broadcast live on BBC radio and been featured on television.

Ricardo Garcia-Curbelo 

A night of  powerful and simply breathtaking music from this master player of the Latin American Harp.  (Valleys Roots magazine, Wales)

Wonderful introduction into a completely different expression of harp music, beautifully expressed." (Concert compliment, Loughton Nov. 2016)

From an early age, Ricardo has been an eminent representative of the Latin American poetry and music culture on a wide variety of stages, both nationally and internationally. He first studied the harp at the Music Academy of Villavicencio, with Luis Alberto Curvelo, his brother and Director of the institution. The two brothers founded The Music Academy of Puerto Carreño (Vichada) and Ricardo lead the first music cultural representation of the region, which was awarded first prizes internationally. Whilst still a young man, he made his name as a poet in his native Colombia, winning international prizes for both poetry and dance. 

Ricardo came to the UK in 1979 and has since given many performances both as a soloist and with many other accomplished musicians. He has recorded live for BBC radio and television and Satellite BSB TV.  His restless desire to contribute and to open new horizons for his culture, led him to construct a new Latin American harp, and with this instrument, the development and presentation of a unique new wave of poetic music.

On stage Ricardo presents a great combination of traditional pieces from Latin American countries, together with many of his own compositions; vibrant, energetic and jazzy pieces contrasting with more classical, enchanting melodies and tender vocals. The sound of his Modelo Corvado harps adds to the uniqueness of his performances, which continue to take audiences by surprise.

Tonight's concert will include compositions from his latest album Espíritu Llanero / A Londres  (Llanero Spirit / To London) and Ricardo is delighted to be sharing the evening with such a fine musician as Fiona Harrison.
