      New Zealand violinist Alexandra Lomeiko has established herself as one of the most talented and versatile musicians her age.She gave her solo recital debut at Wigmore Hall in October 2009 and, in November of the same year, at the Watford Colosseum performing Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with the Purcell School Symphony Orchestra. Since then, she has also performed as a soloist and chamber musician in many prestigious venues around London including, Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Buckingham Palace, Barbican Hall, Cadogan Hall, LSO St. Lukes, Princess Alexandra Hall and Kings Place. She performs regularly throughout the UK as a recitalist and soloist through the Countess of Munster Recital Scheme. Alex is also a selected artist for Making Music.

      In 2013, Alex founded the Silk Street Sinfonia of which she is concertmaster and Artistic Director. The orchestra succesfully released a debut CD in 2014, 'Silk Street Sinfonia Live in Switzerland', performs regularly throughout Europe and hosts the annual 'Silk Street Sinfonia Young Artists Competition' in London.

      JP Ekins was born in London, began playing the piano at the age of five, and many years later graduated from the Royal College of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama with first class degrees, studying with John Barstow and Charles Owen respectively. A winner of nineteen prizes at international competitions, he was presented to her majesty the Queen and enjoyed a busy career of performing and teaching around the UK and internationally; highlights included recitals at the Wigmore Hall and concerto performances at The Royal Albert Hall. Then Covid-19 happened.
      His concerts and teaching having disappeared, he set up Cats, Chats & 88 Keys, an online concert series for maintaining a connection with audiences and raising money for first the NHS, then Help Musicians UK.
