THE Fujita sisters will be performing at King’s Ely’s Recital Hall on Friday (18) for the first concert in King’s Ely Concert Society’ 23rd season.
Arisa (violin), Megumi (piano) and Honoka (cello) have been playing chamber music together since early childhood and made a highly acclaimed debut at the Wigmore Hall in March 1999.
Concert engagements have taken the trio to more than 100 venues in the UK. Overseas, they have played in Canada, France, Italy, Ireland, Romania, Egypt, Morocco and Turkey, and they have won numerous awards and prizes, both as a trio and individually.
Arisa studied with David Takeno at the Guildhall School of Music, London, where she now teaches. Honoka studied at the Guildhall School with Jennifer Ward Clarke and Raphael Wallfisch, where the trio also received coaching from the Takacs Quartet. Megumi studied at the Menuhin School with Louis Kentner, Simon Nicholls and Vlado Perlemuter and continued her studies at the Royal College of Music with Irina Zaritskaya. They won the Chamber Music Prize at the Guildhall School in 1994.
