Trained at the Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, violinists Jessica Graham and Karen Wigham have over 20 years experience as professional violinists.

They have performed with many of the major Orchestras in the country, including BBC Philharmonic, Royal Northern Sinfonia, The Halle, The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Opera North, and toured all over the world, and broadcast on television and radio.

Alongside their orchestral work they have won numerous prizes and awards in chamber music and composition, and have been playing for weddings all their professional lives whether as soloists, in duets or as a string quartet.
