Rianna Henriques is a woodwind doubler, an experienced flautist and saxophonist. She graduated from the Royal College of Music in July 2023, with a Bachelor of Music degree, as a John Lewis Partnership Scholar supported by the Victor Dahdaleh Foundation Scholarship. She is currently studying at the RCM for a Master of Performance degree. There, her instrumental professors are Gitte Marcusson, Sue Thomas, Stewart McIlwham and Andy Panayi. A receiver of many scholarships and awards, Rianna is currently a Drake Calleja Trust Scholar, and both a Help Musicians Postgraduate and a Craxton Memorial Trust Award Holder. In previous years, she was awarded the RCM Junior Department Sally Wainwright Woodwind Prize, the Sarah Markham Saxophone Award, the Alleyn’s School WJ Smith Music Scholarship and first place in their advanced category of the Lizbeth Elliott Woodwind Prize. In 2018, Rianna was one of eight London Philharmonic Orchestra Junior Artists. Her performance success includes a concert at St John’s Smith Square performing Bizet/Borne’s flute concerto, Fantaisie Brillante sur Carmen, with orchestra and performing in her own coffee morning recital in the Royal Albert Hall’s “Elgar Room”. This adds to her performance venue history featuring Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, the Birmingham Symphony Hall, Ronnie Scott’s, the Jazz Cafe, and internationally: the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, and David Geffen Hall in New York’s Lincoln Center, to mention a few. More often than not, Rianna is performing with the Chineke! Orchestra, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, Brixton Chamber Orchestra and Symphonica. Recently, Rianna has been delving further into the world of Jazz. She has recorded on the EP of the newly-founded Olivia Murphy Jazz Orchestra, and on Dan Coulthurst’s debut album, 'BABYTEETH'. With a small ensemble, Rianna has also performed charts from Jasmine Myra's debut album, 'Horizons', at the Montreux Jazz Festival Residency, the Stockholm Jazz, EFG London Jazz, Love Supreme and We Out Here Jazz Festivals, and various venues across the UK. Rianna is very often scouted by reputable companies, such as BBC Radio 3, Vogue and Netflix. This May 2023, Rianna featured in an orchestral rendition of “If I Ain’t Got You” alongside Alicia Keys, to celebrate the release of Netflix’s Queen Charlotte, A Bridgerton Story. Last August 2022, the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro commercial aired, featuring Rianna and seven other musicians. In June 2022, Rianna played for a Puma X Liberty London event, launching the female European League kits. Other artists Rianna has worked with include Jorja Smith, Clean Bandit, Craig David, Beverley Knight and Hermeto Pascoal.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try to be flexible with changes of plans so long as they are not too last minute! If I can accommodate you with a date or time change, I will! I understand that unexpected things may come up from time to time.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Definitely! I have a range of playlists and sets on my device that I can leave running before or after I play, and I can even provide a DJ, both at an extra cost of £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

It depends on the nature of the gig but half an hour to an hour should be good to set up for a gig. This includes time to warm up/tune to a piano if need-be and to possibly plug in background music etc.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

You definitely can! My set list is very broad as I play many instruments and also many genres. You can take a pick and I will take this into consideration. You can also suggest your own pieces/songs if it is well in advance!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes! I will also bring my own music stand, if necessary!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song/piece is not in my repertoire list, there is a high chance I already know it, so do feel free to get in contact about specific suggestions! There is an extra fee of £30 to take into account rehearsal and preparation times though, please do take this into account!

'An exceptional performance showing great versatility. I was blown away by the standard of her repertoire and that she could play both the flute and the saxophone to such a high standard.'
