Air On A Harp String
Victoria Heath (flute) and Anna Cameli (harp) have been playing together for a number of years after meeting during their studies at Trinity Laban Conservatoire. They have spent time exploring the sounds of the flute and harp both in traditional music as well as contemporary works.
Victoria is an accomplished musician having held the position of Bristol City Wait and became the official minstrel for the Mayor of Bristol for a year at an early age. During this time, she performed in the Colston Hall, St George's and the Lord Mayor's Chapel. Having graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire, Victoria has learnt under Susan Milan, Fiona Kelly, Anna Pope, Eliza Marshall and Nicola Woodward. She also received the Vivian Prindl Outreach Prize for her outreach projects.
Victoria has been part of numerous ensembles, including FlautingIt, the Wren Trio, Lumos Duo, Air On A Harp String and is also principle flute in the Cinematic Syncopations Orchestra. Recently, Victoria placed 3rd in Open Advanced Category of the Syrinx International Flute Competition.
Anna began to study harp in the Conservatoire of Vicenza, and, in 2015, she received her harp first diploma. She continued her studies in the Conservatoire of Brescia as a student of Anna Loro. In 2020, she began an MMus course in Trinity Laban Conservatoire in London as a student of Gabriella Dall’Olio. She also studied with Fabrice Pierre, Park Stickney and Gabriella Dall’Olio, Luisa Prandina, Heidi Krutzen, Gwyneth Wentink.
She performs as a soloist (giving recitals organised by associations and institutions; she performs in nursing homes and mental health clinics), a member of duo ensembles with harp, flute, violin, and voice. She collaborates with brass bands and mixed chamber music groups.
During her permanence in London, she freelances with some orchestras and ensembles: Opera Asteria, The World Doctor Orchestra, London City Orchestra, Blackheath Orchestra, Central London Orchestra, London Concert Orchestra, WoCo. She collaborated with North Opera Orchestra; she was the dep for the Thursford Christmas Spectacular shows during the 2022 season. In 2022 she also won the John Marson Prize.
