About Arunda

Arunda is a young and dynamic trio of graduates from The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now known as the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland), The Royal College of Music London and The Conservatoire à Rayonnement Région de Marseille. The trio is part of the prestigious Live Music Now! scheme, as founded by Yehudi Menuhin and also enjoy regular performances for Music in Hospitals.

A highlight for Arunda in 2011 was entertaining Annie Lennox at the glitzy Walpole awards ceremony. Future engagements include a series of concerts and workshops at the St Magnus Festival, Orkney as part of LMN Scotland, as well as a reed quartet collaboration with Japanese Saxophonist Masahito Sugihara at the World Saxophone Congress in St Andrews.

Arunda plays the standard repertoire for reed trio as well as easy listening popular music that everyone knows and loves. The trio is open to requests and is constantly building on the repertoire it plays. Arunda is committed to delivering high quality live music for all occasions. Whether it is a formal recital, background music at a corporate event or that extra sparkle on a special day, Arunda will tailor their programme so that each performance is unique to each individual.

As well as being passionate about chamber music, the members of the trio are dedicated orchestral players and can often be seen playing with the leading Scottish orchestras such as the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Orchestra of Scottish Ballet. Members of the trio have shown their versatility by taking to the stage for some Musical Theatre or recording for bands such as Belle and Sebastian.
