The MAGNARD ENSEMBLE (Suzie Watson flute, Mana Shibata oboe, Joseph Shiner clarinet, Catriona McDermid bassoon and Dewi Jones horn) are steadily building a reputation for delivering both high quality concert performances and dynamic educational projects in London and around the United Kingdom.
The players all follow their own professional performing careers, appearing as soloists, chamber musicians and with orchestras such as the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Manchester Camerata, London Chamber Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Welsh National Opera, Scottish Opera, Orpheus Sinfonia, Royal Northern Sinfonia, Sinfonia Cymru, the Britten-Pears Orchestra and in West End shows such as 'Miss Saigon'.
During the 2014/2015 season, the quintet simultaneously held a Chamber Music Fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music, as well as the inaugural joint fellowship between the Royal Academy of Music Open Academy and the Wigmore Hall Learning Department.

Through their education, outreach and presentation work, the Ensemble are known for their sense of fun and enthusiasm on the concert platform.
