A versatile concert harpist - from the Royal Albert to the wards of St. George's to an enchanted forest in Just So Festival.
Fontane was amazing- we had so many compliments from our guests and she really was one of the highlights of the wedding! I have nothing but praise for her; she played a mix of Bollywood and contemporary music and it was beautiful. Highly recommended. Thank you again! Alia x
My event was postponed for 3 months, and Fontane was already booked for the new date. However Fontane has been extremely professional and helpful throughout the planning phase and she also recommended a replacement for the new date, who performed perfectly.
Born in Singapore, Fontane is one of the most exciting pioneer young harpists from her country. She was awarded the Singapore National Arts Council Overseas Merit Bursary to further her studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, graduating with a First. With the support of the Leverhulme Trust and D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, Fontane received her Masters in Music Therapy at the Guildhall and held a Fellowship there from 2011-2012. She has garnered various accolades including winning a place on the London Sinfonietta Academy, Pacific Music Festival and a prizewinner in the 2009 Franz Josef Reinl Competition. She was also a recipient of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Sir Barbirolli Memorial Foundation Award. Her ability to engage the masses across a variety of styles makes her unique as a solo artist, performing for the Concordia Foundation and award-winning concert series Bach to Baby She is an alumni of Live Music Now. In demand as a chamber and orchestral musician, she is principal harpist of the highly acclaimed Octandre Ensemble, which recently performed on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’. Fontane was recently on trial with Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and has played with London Sinfonietta, LSO Chamber Ensemble, Southbank Sinfonia, Berkeleya Ensemble and Germany’s MusikFabrik.
