Lucia Foti (1998) studied with Maria Ester Gattoni at Conservatorio di Como, Italy, where she was awarded a Master’s degree in Harp Performance in 2019, graduating with first class honours. Supported by a Trinity Laban Scholarship, she is currently attending a Master of Music at Trinity Laban, under the supervision of Gabriella Dall’Olio and Frances Kelly.
She has experience with recitals, orchestra (including soloist roles) and chamber music—she regularly plays in both a flute and harp and a guitar and harp duo. In 2021, as a Trinity Laban student, she gave a chamber performance at Wigmore Hall, together with guitarist Stefano Fiacco.
Lucia won several competitions as well, notably she was awarded a first prize scholarship at the Soroptimist Italia Competition for young talents (2015) and a prestigious prize assigned by the Italian Chamber of Deputies (2016).
She has attended masterclasses given by Elizabeth-Fontan Binoche, Anna Loro, Judith Liber, Luisa Prandina, Park Stickney, Gwyneth Wentynk and Heidi Krutzen.

In 2020 he took advantage of the Erasmus Program to study with Graham Anthony Devine at Trinity Laban for his last Master’s year and graduated with first class honours once back in Bergamo.
He is currently attending an Artist Diploma course in Guitar at Trinity Laban with Graham Anthony Devine.
Other than performing in chamber formations (duo with guitar, cello, harp, flute and guitar trio), Stefano performed on his own and as a soloist with different orchestras. He also performed as a continuist for baroque ensembles and orchestras playing the cello as well as the lute.
He won several prizes in competitions including first prize at the Valstrona competition in 2013, the Estudiantina Bergamasca in 2016 and the special Nilo Peraldo Bert prize (ex-aequo) at the Nilo Peraldo Bert competition in 2015, and attended masterclasses with Giulio Tampalini, Ermanno Brignolo, Eduardo Fernández, Javier Riba.
