Jeremy Foster was brought up in Norwich and read Music at the University of Manchester, studying the oboe with Valerie Taylor and Richard Simpson. He then took a Masters Degree in Performance Studies at Trinity College of Music, writing a dissertation on The Direction of Authenticity, and studying with Tess Miller and Sophia McKenna. Jeremy has played with many orchestras and ensembles including the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the RTE Symphony and Concert Orchestras in Dublin. Concerto performances have included works by Richard Strauss, Mozart and Jean Francaix. Chamber music has always been an essential part of his musical life. The Aristos Wind Quintet was formed at Trinity in 1998 and continues a fine tradition of taking the genre to a wider audience, including two tours to South America aboard Swan Hellenic's Minerva II. Jeremy also runs a Wine Tasting and Wine Education business called Thirst for Knowledge.

Melanie Foster studied Spanish at King's College, London with a year spent in Salamanca, after which she completed a degree at Trinity College of Music studying the clarinet with Nick Bucknall and Tony Jennings. Since that point, she has combined a freelance career with an emphasis on opera and chamber music, big band work on alto & baritone saxophone, a busy teaching schedule, and the other half of her professional life - photography. Melanie has had many photographs published and printed, and still shoots on a 5 x 4 inch film camera. Her photography work centres around landscape detail, and takes her all over the UK, particularly Scotland and Cornwall, where Melanie is currently focussing her work at Geevor Tin Mine.

Rosie Cow studied the bassoon at the Royal College of Music with Martin Gatt, and at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Meyrick Alexander and Gordon Laing. This led to a varied and exciting career playing both bassoon and contrabassoon for many top British orchestras including BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, London Concert Orchestra, London Mozart Players, and Welsh National Opera and also the RTE National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland. She was appointed principal bassoon with the English Symphony Orchestra in 2016. She finds it really satisfying to take live music to residents through the ESO Care Home Concerts project and to be involved with ESO Youth projects. She is also a renowned reed maker with professional and student clients all over the world. When not playing the bassoon Rosie loves being in the mountains - walking, climbing and skiing. She has completed two expeditions to the Himalayas, climbing Mera Peak (6,500m), Island Peak (6,200m) and trekking to Everest Base Camp (5,400m).
