Oliver Wass studied at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama with Imogen Barford.

He is the only harpist ever to win the Guildhall Gold Medal, the Guildhall’s most prestigious prize. Previous winners include Jacqueline du Pré and Bryn Terfel. He has performed all the major harp concertos, including Lyra Angelica with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Mozart's Flute and Harp Concerto at Wigmore Hall, and has directed Handel's Harp Concerto in Bb in the Barbican Hall. He has won International Competitions in Italy, Hungary and the UK.

His Wigmore Hall debut was praised by Seen and Heard International for “tremendous dynamism” and "remarkable range of timbres and warmth of tone”.

Lise Vandersmissen, born in Belgium, came to the UK in 2016 to study at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. Amongst others, she won the First Prize in the 5th International Harp Competition in Slovenia and the Second Prize in the 5th International Harp Competition in Hungary. As well as playing the modern pedal harp, Lise discovered her love for the Italian Triple Harp in London. She loves creating and performing her own transcriptions.
