Alina

Alina is one of the most exciting harpists. Her virtuoso performances and imaginative programmes have established her reputation as a harpist of exceptional accomplishment. She has had the honour of playing at Scottish and European Parliaments, at the Queen’s 80th-birthday celebrations at Balmoral Castle and at the King of Thailand’s birthday celebrations in Bangkok.

Lara/Salzedo “Granada Concert Fantasy”

Alina studied at the F. Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw, Poland (Masters in Arts), and The University of Arizona, USA (Masters in Music Performance).

She has performed with many major European orchestras including the Young World Symphony Orchestra, the National Opera in Warsaw and Scottish Opera.

Alina is exploring a jazz harp by working with jazz award winners Ryan Quigley (trumpet) and singer Niki King.

Her London appearances include Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and BBC Radio 3.
