The Dowling Trio were formed out of a desire to make music and to enjoy it! The relishing of good music is at the Dowling Trios core. We exist to enjoy music and provide enjoyable entertainment to all those hiring our services. The Dowling Trio comprises of three incredibly talented musicians:- Cellist: Samuel Creer is a London based cellist. He graduated from the London College of Music in 2017 and has since established a career as a session musician. Notable engagements include: ‘A bench on the edge’ (Tristan Bates Theatre), ‘Closets the Musical’ (Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester), ‘When Midnight Strikes’ (Upstairs at The Gatehouse, London) and ‘Metamorphoses 2’(Waterloo East Theatre, London). He has also been invited to perform at The French Embassy, The Royal Hospital Chelsea, Tower Bridge Walkways, Abbey Road Studios and other prestigious venues as both an ensemble and orchestral member. Violinist: Yoshinori Hayashi completed Batchelors of Music and Masters degree in Historical Musicology. He studied violin performance with Dr. Devorina Gamalova at Goldsmiths college and London College of Music. He performs regularly in orchestra and is a keen chamber musician both on the violin and viola. He has attended masterclasses by renowned violinists such as Mark Lubotsky and Stephane Tran Ngoc. He attended International Music Festival in Bulgaria where he had opportunity to work with former Kodaly Quartet violinist Michael Barta and lead the performance of String Quintet by Mozart. Pianist: Mark Dowling is a professional pianist and teacher. Mark, as a BYMT licensed teacher, works in primary and secondary schools, teaching the piano, music theory and classroom music technology and music making curriculum lessons. In addition to his professional teaching, Mark accompanies the choir at St Joseph's, Epsom, performs solo piano lunchtime recitals on a semi-regular basis and sings Tenor in the South London Singers. Mark is also resident pianist for Brent Jazz Orchestra and tuned percussion player for Bromley Concert Band. Other Musical commitments include the performance in a classical trio, and involvement in a duo project with Benedikt Stroher. The Dowling Trio have performed in a number of different performance contexts from a 90th birthday party, seasonal services in churches, Jubilee street parties, weddings and formal lunchtime recitals. The Dowling Trio have performed a vast array of repertoire ranging from classical music (Haydn and Mozart), ragtime and American musics (Scott Joplin and Edward MacDowell), Christmas arrangements of carols and mass settings. In addition to this repertoire, we have also prepared arrangements of classic pop songs by the Bangles and the Beatles and ventured into the vibe of the famous Netflix series, 'Bridgerton', performing 'Love me like you do' and other featured pop music arranged for classical instrumentation. The Dowling Trio are a virtuoso, flexible and relevant ensemble, not afraid to innovate and adapt. We are craftsmen of sound and service and we offer our services to you as professional performers, workshop leaders, businessmen and entertainers. Get in touch and hire us for your boutique events. We are here to serve, showcase and celebrate music together!
