Joanne Rozario (R) and Yukiko Shinohara (L)

Joanne Rozario (clarinet): Joanne’s international career has taken her from her home town of London to venues all over the world including Hong Kong, China, South Africa, Canada, America, Spain and Greece. Joanne studied clarinet and saxophone at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Whilst there, she also founded a prize-winning saxophone quartet who received a scholarship to study at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada, went on to perform in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and played live on Classic FM. In her final year at the Academy she joined the Hong Kong Philharmonic as Assistant Principal Clarinet where she performed concertos by Saint-Saëns and Glazunov, played live on Hong Kong Radio and Television and took part in the Sunset Ceremony which marked Hong Kong’s return from colonial Britain to China. After a few months in England she moved to South Africa where she was Principal Clarinet with the Kwa-Zulu Natal Philharmonic Orchestra in Durban for two and a half years. During her time in Africa, she played the Mozart concerto and the Debussy Rhapsodie with the orchestra. She performed regularly as a solo recitalist and also appeared in many chamber music concerts, including the prestigious Grahamstown International Festival. When she was offered the post of Principal Clarinet with Northern Ballet Orchestra Joanne returned to England. She now tours extensively with the company alongside performing solo and chamber music concerts all over the country. She lives in London and maintains strong links with South Africa, where she recently completed a month long recital tour.

Yukiko Shinohara (piano) was born in Ibaraki, Japan and studied at Tokyo Metropolitan Senior High School for Fine Arts and Music. She received her BMus from Goldsmith’s College (University of London) under Susan Bradshaw, and later studied with Douglas Finch at Trinity College of Music where she received an MMus Degree and Postgraduate Certificate in Advanced Performance. She also studied with Catherine Vickers in Frankfurt and attended summer schools at Dartington, Darmstadt, Salzburg and Nice. She was a Park Lane Young Artist in 2001 doing solo recital at South Bank Centre in London, and has performed Ligeti’s Etudes at the contemporary music festival Composium 2003 in Tokyo and premiered Britten’s early piano works at Aldeburgh Festival. She performs both as chamber musician and soloist in Japan, U.K, Belgium, Holland, France, Greece and Spain. She is currently on staff as an accompanist at Trinity College of Music.
