This exciting young international period instrument orchestra was formed in 2001, giving debut performances in St. James's, Piccadilly and St. Martin-in-the-Fields. The core of Musica Viva comprises present and former students of the world's top music conservatoires.

The ensemble is already gaining widespread recognition and has built up a devoted following in a very short space of time. Musica Viva perform in major London venues and have plans to tour worldwide, beginning with New Zealand and Australia.

Director (recorder player and harpsichordist) Heather Tomala trained at the University of Birmingham and the Royal Academy of Music. A dedicated advocate of Baroque music on 'authentic' as well as modern instruments, her aim is to remove the recorder's battered classroom image once and for all! As a soloist she performs both early and modern works, with new pieces currently being composed especially for her.
