Emma Adlard and Stephanie Rawlins founded the Alban Duo in 2014 with their first Christmas fundraising concert in St Albans. Since then the Alban Duo has raised thousands of pounds. Emma and Stephanie both attended St Albans High School for Girls and got to know each other through their piano teacher Beth Fagg, who encouraged them to play duets together. Emma has a PhD in early twentieth century French music from King's College London and has just been appointed Head of Philanthropy at the Royal College of Music. Stephanie was awarded her Dip ABRSM in piano performance in 2004 and also works at the Royal College of Music as a marketing manager for events. The programme for this concert will be based on a French/Jazz theme.
