Some of you may remember Caroline Dale as one of the first winners of BBC Young Musician of the Year.

She is currently Principal cellist of the English Chamber Orchestra, having been principal of the BT Scottish Ensemble and the LCO. Her recording career includes the solo cello music for the films Hilary and Jackie (about the life of Jacqueline du Pre) and Truly Madly Deeply.

Miranda was born in Middlesbrough, was leader of the Cleveland Youth Orchestra from 1983/4. She is now Principal 2nd violin with the Britten Sinfonia (with whom she also performs as soloist notably at the Proms last year ), and is a Guest Principal with the Philharmonia, ECO, London Mozart Players and others.  She plays a fine violin made for her by Roger Hansell from Leyburn.
