Stephanie Legg and Julia Hart

From a family of musicians, Stephanie Legg has recently completed her undergraduate studies at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, studying with Gerard McChrystal and Mick Foster. Stephanie is enthusiastically working towards a career in solo/ensemble performance and also composition, having had the privilege of performing with musicians such as Tim Garland, Simone Robello, The Guy Barker Jazz Orchestra and contemporary composer Bill Connor. She has also performed in masterclasses with saxophonists such as Vincent David, Antonio Canovas, James Houlik, saxofonquadrat and most recently, Mario Marzi.

As a soloist, Stephanie has performed in venues such as The Sage Gateshead, Newcastle Cathedral, Guildford Cathedral and Waltham Abbey. As part of the British saxophone congress 2011, Stephanie was a soloist in performances of the Philip Glass concerto for saxophone quartet and symphony orchestra. Stephanie also performs regular recitals across churches in North Tyneside to raise money for Christians against poverty and the Bobby Robson Foundation. Future plans include a recital to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support.

A keen ensemble player, Stephanie has performed with saxophone quartets in the Old Royal Naval Chapel in Greenwich, Farnham Maltings, Cheltenham Town Hall, Charlton House and Gateshead International Jazz Festival.

Stephanie is looking forward to future projects such as a concerto with the North East’s ‘Cobweb Orchestra’ and various recitals in churches across London.

Julia Hart was brought up in London, England. From an early age she has been attending orchestral and solo concerts at the Festival Hall and Barbican Centre, and grew to love listening to classical music. She started learning the violin at the age of 7, inspired by listening to her favourite violinist, Itzhak Perlman.

She enjoys playing lots of different repertoire. When she was younger she enjoyed being in LSSO (London Schools Youth Orchestra), where she was co-leader. They performed works such as Dvorak Symphony No. 9, and Stravinsky Petrushka. Since coming to Trinity, apart from the College orchestra, she has played with London youth orchestras YMSO and ULSO.

At her school, Putney High, she was given the opportunity to perform the Mozart Adelaide Violin Concerto with the Chamber Orchestra. She also performed the solo part for the Beethoven Romance in F, which is one of her favourite violin pieces. She performed the same piece for the Louis Watt competition where she won 2nd prize. More recently, she was commended in the annual Vera Kantrovich prize for Solo Bach, held at Trinity. Julia’s quartet was selected to play with the soloists from the Mozart Piano Concerto Festival at Trinity, where they did No. 13 in C major and 14 in Eb major. They also took part in the John Cage festival to celebrate his Centenary, performing Company by Philip Glass.

Julia’s previous teacher was Estzer Boda-Katona, whom she learned with from the age of 11 to 18. She is currently in her final year, studying with Diana Cummings at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, where she is studying for the BMus degree.

St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, also known as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Holborn), is an Anglican church in the City of London. It is located on Holborn Viaduct, almost opposite the Old Bailey. In medieval times it stood just outside ("without") the now-demolished old city wall, near the Newgate. It has been a living of St John's College, Oxford, since 1622.
