Soprano Camilla Jeppeson and harpist Mary Reid began working as a duo after several years of performing together as accompanists with the Promenade Girls' Choir in Surrey. Having inaugurated this season with a recital at All Saints Church Fulham, they enjoyed a tour of the UK including a trip to Yorkshire to play at Music@Junction 50 and an appearance at The Riverhouse Barn in Walton-on-Thames. They enjoy performing a wide range of music from the Renaissance to the present day.

Camilla initially studied as a pianist before training as a singer. After completing the Associated Studios Opera Course in London, she began studies with world-renowned bass Graeme Danby. Most recently, Camilla made her Italian debut as Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi, and her house debut at the Teatro del Giglio, Lucca. Operatic roles have included Blonde (Die Entführung aus den Serail), La Sagesse/Lucinde as part of the Grimeborn Festival at the Arcola Theatre and Zerlina (Don Giovanni), for which Camilla received critical acclaim: 'her Batti, batti was a highlight of Act 1'. Other engagements have included performances at the Royal Greenwich International Early Music Festival, an appearance with the Rameau Academy accompanied by Rob Howarth, Cadogan Hall and The Ritz.

Mary performs as a soloist, orchestral musician, chamber artist and for community musical outreach work. She has given solo recitals at Ripon Cathedral, for the Brantwood Young Artist Series and at the 11th Russian Harp Festival in Moscow. Other recent highlights include performing in the Ring Cycle at the Royal Opera House in 2018, at the Oxford Lieder Festival and at the Gibraltar International Music Festival.

Mary loves taking the harp to special needs schools and hospitals and is an artist for Live Music Now and the Concordia Foundation. Mary freelances with various orchestras including CBSO, Northen Ballet, the Royal Opera House and the London Mozart Players. Mary gained her BMus and MA from the Royal Academy of Music, studying under Skaila Kanga and graduating with Distinction and the Renata Scheffl-Stein Harp Prize.
