Huw Wiggin (saxophone) and Oliver Wass (harp) will travel to Somerset on the 12th January to play in the Millfield School International Concert Series. The duo will give the first half of the evening’s concert, with music from Albinoni to Debussy, Gershwin and De Falla.
Both Huw and Oliver will also be taking masterclasses with harpists and saxophonists at the school in the afternoon before the concert.
The second half of the concert will be presented by another agency artist, the Ferio Saxophone Quartet.
Huw and Oliver first met through an invitation from Stogumber Festival to give a concert of music for saxophone and harp. The result was extremely well received and, having enjoyed playing together enormously, they went on to form a regular duo.
