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).
Former Principal Horn of the Cyprus Chamber Orchestra, Kate Goldsmith has played period horns with the Kings Consort, Il Complesso Barocco and Haydn Sinfonietta Wien. As a chamber musician, she has performed with Spira Mirabilis and been a Chamber Fellow of the Royal Academy of music. More recently Kate performed live on Radio 3 and released a chart topping Cd “The Saxon Alternative”with the historical wind ensemble Syrinx. Her orchestral work has included concerts, tours and Radio Broadcasts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra,London Mozart Players and English Symphony Orchestra. Other notable performances include the première of Stockhausen's Opera 'Sonntag aus Licht' with musikFabrik in Cologne, the pop concert for the Queen's Golden Jubilee and live televised gig with rap/hip-hop artist Kanye West. In her home town of Oxford Kate is a founding member of the period ensemble Instruments of Time and Truth.
London based bassoonist, Julia Flint, currently studies at the Royal College of Music under the Ian Evans Lombe Scholarship with Martin Gatt, Sarah Burnett and Emily Hultmark and contrabassoon with Martin Field. Julia was principal bassoon in the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain where she worked with many renowned conductors including Sir Mark Elder and Thomas Ades and played at the BBC Proms several times. Julia has appeared with orchestras on ClassicFM, BBC Radio 2 and Radio 3, where she has also been interviewed and played with her wind quintet live on InTune. Closer to home, Julia was also a member of the Ealing Youth Orchestra for 6 years. As a soloist Julia has played movements from the Mozart, Weber and Vivaldi A Minor bassoon concertos with various orchestras. She has also taken part in masterclasses with Ole Kristian Dahl, Sophie Dervaux and Giorgio Mandolesi. Julia is a Britten- Pears Young Artist 2020 and currently holds the Ealing Music and Film Festival Senior scholarship. Julia plays on a Heckel 7000 series instrument.
Hugh Mather studied the piano and organ from an early age, gaining the FRCO and the ARCM piano performers diplomas. He then pursued a medical career and was Consultant Physician at Ealing Hospital from 1982 to 2006, before retiring to pursue his musical interests. He continued his piano studies with James Gibb for many years, and gave countless concerts at St Mary's Perivale, St Barnabas and elsewhere, as concerto soloist, recitalist, accompanist and chamber musician. More recently he has effectively retired from public performances and concentrated on organizing concerts. He has been Chairman of the Friends of St Mary's Perivale since 2005, and has organised 1000 concerts there, as well as a further 600 at St Barnabas Church.
