Victoria Lyon is the great-great-grand-daughter of the renowned 19th century opera singer, Jenny Lind, known as “The Swedish Nightingale”. With her five siblings, who were also music scholars, she formed a family sextet that would busk in the streets, instead of taking summer jobs. She later attended the Royal College of Music and joined the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as its youngest player.

Izzy Johnston, who gained a full scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, is from an extremely musical family. Her parents run a music school, her brother Guy is a cellist, Magnus a violinist and Rupert is a horn player, who unfortunately was left severely brain damaged after a car accident in 1997. Her family continues to raise money for Rupert’s charity BIRT. Izzy performed an arrangement of The Four Seasons with Magnus at the Royal Albert Hall Prom in 2005 and was a guest soloist with Michael Ball at his prom in 2007.

Tasya Hodges, who speaks four languages, was born in England but is half Croatian.  Passionate about music from an early age, she started playing the cello whilst living in Croatia. However, her life was interrupted by war in the county and she and her family were forced to leave, relocating to Brussels for two years until Tasya won a scholarship to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School in Surrey, England.  Later came four years at Guildhall where she performed with the London Symphony Orchestra for three months.
