Chamberhouse Winds's Bio

Chamberhouse Winds have been providing high quality chamber music for recitals, weddings, and corporate functions since 2005.

Chamberhouse Winds are: Samantha Moore (flute), Hazel Todd (oboe), Ian Stott (horn), Sally Bartholomew (bassoon) and Caroline Owen (clarinet). The formation of the quintet was a natural progression for these five highly experienced and skilled musicians who found that they were frequently playing together in larger ensembles. All members of the group are established orchestral and chamber players, as well as each being solo artists in their own right.

Chamberhouse Winds’ repertoire can be varied to suit a wide range of occasions, from a formal recital or an occasion more suited to light classics or ‘popular’ repertoire. They have also been the ‘orchestra’ for many small scale opera productions, with strings or just piano, including:

The Magic Flute / Cosi fan tutte / Don Giovanni / La Clemenza di Tito
L’Elisir d’Amore / Don Pasquale
The Barber of Seville
Cavalliera Rusticana
The Merry Widow
Orpheus in the Underworld
La Traviata /Rigoletto / Il Trovatore
La Boheme / Madame Butterfly / Tosca
I Pagliarcci
Die Fledermaus
Albert Herring
