PLEASE CONSIDER A DONATION

As a music charity, every day that Town Hall and Symphony Hall are closed puts the livelihood of musicians and artists, staff and suppliers in jeopardy. The current COVID-19 crisis will dramatically limit our ability to present the many learning, talent development and community engagement projects that form a vital part of our work and positively impact almost 20,000 young people and adults each year.

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

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 the Scottish Opera. 

Continuing her career in London, Bzhezhinska has become one of the most innovative international jazz harpists. She has collaborated and recorded with leading jazz musicians: such as Django Bates, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Shabaka Hutchings. Alina’s London appearances include Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Royal Albert Hall, Ronnie Scott's as well as LIVE performances on BBC Radio 3 and World Wide FM. Her duo with award-winning jazz vocalist Niki King  performed as a support act for Gregory Porter. 

She also performed at the Edinburgh International Harp Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, Glasgow Jazz Festival and the World Harp Congress in Sydney, Australia.

Alina Bzhezhinska Quartet appeared at the London Jazz Festival 2017 in a triple bill performance along with Coltrane’ s specialist Denys Baptist and the legendary saxophonist Pharoah Sanders. This project was nominated for JazzFM Award for  best Live experience of the year. 

Bzhezhinska has recorded a solo album called “Harp Recital” and appeared at recordings of American harp ensemble Harp Fusion and Wisniewski / Stevenson jazz group “New Focus”. Her jazz quartet album INSPIRATION was released to a high critical acclaim by Ubuntu Music in June 2018 .
