Introduced for 2016, Lancing College Music Department announces its first Associate Artists, who will provide an outstanding series of masterclasses for our students, as well as public concerts throughout the year.
Joseph Shiner, acclaimed clarinettist
Joseph Shiner is noted for his fluidity of tonal colour and highly communicative, insightful playing. He is the recipient of the Hattori Foundation Senior Award, the Making Music Philip and Dorothy Green Award for Young Concert Artists, the Worshipful Company of Musicians’ Prince’s Prize and the Royal Academy of Music’s Buffet Crampon Clarinet Prize, and is also a selected artist for the City Music Foundation.

This quartet, whose members share a passion for chamber music, is led by Simon Lane, a much sought after repetiteur. Simon performs with instrumentalists and singers across the country, in venues including Wigmore Hall, St. George’s Bristol, Queen Elizabeth Hall, and Bridgewater Hall, as well as the US and throughout Europe; and in festivals including Bachfest Leipzig, Leeds Lieder, Brighton Festival and Ljubljana Summer.
Old Dirty Brasstards, London’s finest drum ‘n’ brass experience
