Acacia Duo Profile, Morgensterns Diary Service

Samantha and Heather met in 2008 while undergraduates at the Royal Academy of Music in London. They had an instant rapport and formed the 'Acacia Duo', performing together in concerts and master classes.

Samantha and Heather are both busy freelance musicians, performing as orchestral and solo artists at venues such as The Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Opera House, St Martin in the Fields and Cadogan Hall. They enjoy working together in this smaller chamber combination for its beautiful and romantic sound, and how it lends itself to a variety of performing opportunities ranging from intimate occasions to large orchestral events.

Samantha was born in Kent and began learning the flute at the age of eight. At thirteen she won a scholarship to study under David Nicholson in Aberdeen, and became a member of the National Youth Orchestras of Great Britain and Scotland. In 2012 she graduated from the Royal Academy of Music with 1st Class Honors and the Chris Taylor Flute prize.

Samantha won first prize in the Academy's 'All Flutes Plus Flute Prize' 2010 and won the chance to perform Ibert's Flute Concerto with RAM Concert Orchestra in May 2011. She was awarded the June Allison Wood Wind Award 2012 by the Philharmonia Orchestra/ Martin Musical Scholarship towards her postgraduate studies in Cologne, Germany with Professor Robert Winn and has since performed solo recitals in St Mary's Westminster and the Royal Festival Hall.

Heather was inspired to play the harp at the age of six and as a junior student at Trinity College of Music she studied harp with Gabriella Dall'Olio and Frances Kelly and continued her studies at The Royal Academy of Music, London with Karen Vaughan, graduating with a BMus(Hons) and LRAM teaching qualification.

Performance highlights include playing in the choir of 60 harps at the Royal Opera House, London for His Royal Highness Prince Charles 60th birthday celebration, performing the Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto with the European Union Chamber Orchestra, accompanying the New Forrest Children's Choir in the 'BBC Choir Of The Year' final held at the Royal Festival Hall which was broadcast on BBC radio and TV.

Acacia are available to play at weddings and events as well as recitals and concerts. They can offer help and advice to provide suitable repertoire to suit the style and atmosphere of the occasion.
