Sussex-based harp duo 94 Strings is set to perform their debut concert at Angel House, Hove, this month.

They aim to explore all kinds of music, from Bach to the Beach Boys, on Thursday, August 25 (6.30pm).

Alexandra King and Fiona Hosford have decades of experience between them, having played for weddings, concerts, and many other events.

“They met in 2014, bonding over a mutual appreciation of exciting harp repertoire, cats and gin,” said a spokesperson for the group.

“Fiona began her studies on the harp aged just six. Since then she has performed all over the UK and abroad, enjoying a successful and varied musical career as one of the South East’s most highly recommended harpists.

“Her sense of humour and natural musicality ensures that her playing is always a joy to hear. Previous engagements include performances for Wimbledon and Tour de France, at the V&A Museum in London, and for various A-List celebrity events.

“Alexandra started piano lessons aged seven, picking up the harp aged 16.

“Her skills on the piano helped her to progress quickly, joining the Brighton Youth Orchestra just one year later before continuing to achieve her BMus(hons) degree in Music Performance.

“As well as for numerous high profile events, Alexandra has performed on live television and radio.

“She has a passion for all kinds of music, from classical and jazz to more modern and electronic styles.

“94 Strings have a varied repertoire, including classics such as Faure’s Berceuse from the Dolly Suite and Bach’s Sicilienne, through to more modern songs like Massive Attack’s Teardrop and Bill Withers’ Ain’t No Sunshine. Whatever your taste in music, 94 Strings play music everyone will love.”
