The Lochrian Ensemble was founded in 1991 by four exceptionally talented graduates of music college and university. Since forming, the group have spent over 20 years performing all around the UK, and have been coached by celebrated musicians including Andrew Shulman and Bruno Schrecker, who describes the group as 'his favourite quartet in the West'!

This professional group of musicians have performed at over 250 wedding venues around the UK, have a number of highly-acclaimed recordings to their name, and often appear on the BBC's Songs of Praise.

Catherine Black - Co-founder and leader of the group, Catherine regularly leads ensembles including Opera Project and Exultate Singers and has recorded extensively for television and film.

Jane Jewel - This fantastic cellist studied at the Royal Academy of Music where she won the Herbert Walen prize and developed a love of chamber music, playing in trios, and quartets and cello ensembles. She has freelanced with several orchestras including the Welsh National Opera and the Endellion Festival Orchestra.
