A versatile and dynamic ensemble, flautist Vicky Guise and guitarist Will Browne began performing as a duo whilst completing Masters degrees at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Here, they were awarded the June Emerson Launchpad Prize upon graduating and later received the Acapela Studio award.
They have been featured artists on the Live Music Now scheme and more recently for the Music In Hospitals and Care scheme. Alongside performing, they have been mentored by some of the world’s most renowned musicians including Carla Rees, Sarah Newbold, John Mills, Chris Stell of the Eden Stell Duo and Lenny Sayers of the BBC Now Orchestra. Past engagements include the lunchtime concert series at St Martin in the Fields, St David’s Cathedral Festival, St. Donats’ Arts Centre Arcomis International Flute Festival, Thornbury Arts Festival and the 2017 Cardiff Guitar Festival. Icaris also enjoy working alongside composers to create new works for the ensemble which has led to a number of première performances in the UK.
