The Juniper Project is an established collaboration between Welsh harpist Eira Lynn Jones and Greek flautist Anna Rosa Mari. From recitals to outreach projects they bring a special blend to the world of flute and harp by performing original repertoire, alongside arrangements of familiar classics. Both players are experienced recitalists and have also worked with such orchestras as the Hallé, European Union Chamber Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, Opera North, Manchester Camerata, and the Ulster Orchestra.
They are committed teachers, encouraging players of all ages and levels. Eira was Head of Harp at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester for nearly 30 years and has given workshops in Iceland, South Africa, Denmark and USA. Anna Rosa’s dedication to teaching has seen projects with the Hallé Education Department, Programa Orquestas de Penalolen, Chile, and the Global Leaders Programme. They also offer educational packages for schools and for Music in Hospitals.
Praised for their varied and imaginative programming, they have recently given recitals at the King's Lynn Festival, Didsbury Arts Festival, Chipping Norton Festival and Lincoln Performing Arts Centre lunchtime series. One of their most unusual venues was the iconic Victoria Baths in Manchester. They often include alto flute, piccolo and the clarsach (Celtic harp) in their concerts, which brings an unique added element to their presentations.
The duo released their CD Fragments on the Divine Art Records label, and received critical acclaim. Works by Vaughan Williams, Rutter, Debussy and Ibert are complimented with lesser known pieces by Hovhaness, Andrès, Lutoslawski and Mouquet. The album was featured on Apple Music Classical A.M. Top 50 playlist and is available to purchase online and at concerts.
