Laura Casas Cambra
Laura is a London-based pianist, researcher and community musician.
As a performer and researcher, she is a PhD candidate at the Royal College of Music, aiming to introduce the public to lesser-known interwar women composers and their dormant works, by combining digital humanities methodologies, historical research, and practice-led approaches. She is grateful to be an RCM Studentship Holder and to have been awarded a Frank Bridge Trust grant to pursue this doctoral research.
Passionate about chamber music, she is the co-founder of Duo Eunoia with violinist Inês Delgado, creating interactive performances where creativity, improvisation and connection with the audience are at the heart of it all. The duo has recently been awarded the Innovation Fund by Turning Point UK, and October 2022 marked their debut at Wigmore Hall’s Wigmore Sessions.
Alongside this, she is delighted to be engaged in community music projects with early-years, young people, people living with dementia, women survivors of human trafficking and in prisons; with organisations such as Pan Intercultural Arts, Wigmore Hall, Turtle Key Arts, and Liberty Choir UK.
Laura has been the recipient of various awards and grants throughout her career, including Soundcastle’s Sparking Change Bursary Award 2022, the RCM Musicians’ Grant Fund, the Extraordinary Piano Award and the Extraordinary Chamber Music Award during her professional music studies in Spain, and the Award for Excellence in Academic Performance by the Council of Terrassa.
