After graduating she continued her studies with Sidney Griller. Janis has taught for the Hampshire Music Service for many years. She plays with Havant Chamber Orchestra, Solent Symphony Orchestra, Basingstoke Symphony Orchestra, South Downs Camerata and the Consort of Twelve and is much in demand as a chamber music player.

Wendy Lowe (cello) originally from Anglesey, was a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Wales, and read music at Cardiff University, studying cello with Sharon McKinley. She worked as a peripatetic cello teacher and freelance cellist in South Wales, working with the Welsh Sinfonia and the contemporary theatre group “Moving Being”. Now based in Hampshire, Wendy works as a cello teacher. She plays with the Solent Symphony Orchestra and the South Downs Camerata and gives regular chamber recitals with local ensembles.

Graham Bint (piano) studied organ and piano at the Royal College of Music where he was awarded the Geoffrey Tankard prize, and the Sawyer and Durrant prizes from the Royal College of Organists. Postgraduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music followed. Graham has collaborated with the Rotherhurst Ensemble previously in repertoire for organ and strings and has greatly enjoyed exploring the piano trio and quartet repertoire with Sue, Janis and Wendy over recent months.
