Hannah Dienes-Williams is 17 and a Music Scholar at Guildford High School. Her singing teacher is Gary Coward.

She joined Guildford Cathedral Choir at the age of nine and was its Head Chorister from 2017-18. Over her seven years as a member, she has featured as a soloist on two BBC radio broadcasts and a CD recording with the choir, as well as frequently performing solos in services and concerts, including the Pie Jesu from Duruflé’s Requiem with the Southern Pro Musica Orchestra, as well as works by Cecilia McDowell and James MacMillan.

Amber Emson started playing violin at the age of 5 as a pupil of Margaret Norris and later Natasha Boyarsky; in 2009 she joined RAM’s Junior Department. As a student at Chetham’s School of Music 2014-16, she won the school’s Concerto Competition resulting in a performance of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto with Chetham’s Sinfonia at Manchester Cathedral, and the Catherine Perkins Chamber Music Prize. Amber is currently a music scholar at Reeds School in Cobham; she studies violin under the tutelage of Maciej Rakowski and enhances her music education at RCM’s Junior Department.

Sasha Scott is an Anglo-Caribbean violinist and composer from Wembley, London. She was a violinist at the Royal Academy of Music primary and junior department for four years and was a member of the National Children’s Orchestra GB for six years, winning a Leverhulme scholarship on two occasions.  

Hollie Tibbotts is 16 years old and has been playing the flute for nearly 10 years. Since she was 13, she was taught by Steve Goodwin at Woking High School and became Principal Flute and Piccolo for the Windband.  She also won the Lorna Patterson Award for Special Achievement in Music, resulting in being invited by the Mayor of Woking to play ‘Sonatina’ by Burton at their Civic Reception.

Alison Rhind is recognised as one of the leading collaborative pianists specialising in the repertoire for piano and strings. Her ability to accompany was recognised and nurtured at an early age whilst still at Chetham’s School of Music and she became increasingly in demand throughout her time at Oxford University where she read Music at Wadham College. Chetham’s invited her back immediately she had finished her degree but she completed her studies with Edith Vogel at the Guildhall School of Music before returning there.
