As an enthusiastic orchestral musician, Camilla performs with the Philharmonia Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera and Royal Northern Sinfonia. With the LSO, she recorded the soundtrack for The Shape of Water, which received the Oscar for Best Original Score.
Camilla recently graduated from the Royal Academy of Music, being awarded the Regent Fellowship, and the Tebbutt Exhibition Award for achievement. During her studies, Camilla performed as principal flute under the baton of Semyon Bychov and Yan Pascal Tortelier, receiving commendatory reviews for her performance in Mahler’s 9th Symphony.
As a soloist, Camilla regularly performs in recitals and competitions; most recently winning the Woodwind Prize and Flute Prize at the Royal College of Music, the Piccolo Prize at the RAM, and was a finalist in the Yamaha Music Europe Competition. Camilla also won the opportunity for a debut concerto performance at Cadogan Hall, leading to further performances in Switzerland.
Thomas is currently pursuing an Artist Diploma at the Guildhall School under Andrew West and Eugene Asti, having previously studied at the Royal Academy of Music with Hamish Milne and Diana Ketler. He has won prizes for his performances of Beethoven, Frederick Delius, Arthur Bliss and the contemporary piano repertoire.
In other chamber groups he maintains a strong interest in unusual repertoire of the late Romantic, as well as mid-20th-century British music. He has also earned recognition as a specialist in the music of Nikolai Kapustin, having played and conducted world premieres of his compositions in the UK, Singapore, Australia and Taiwan.
Off the concert stage, Thomas works as a répétiteur and ballet pianist. He sometimes accompanies and improvises for silent film, having performed at the Barbican Cinema in Erotikon by Gustav Machatý. Thomas also plays the violin, and writes poetry and piano transcriptions of songs and symphonies.
