Alina is one of the most exciting harpists based in the UK. Her virtuoso performances and imaginative programmes have established her reputation as a harpist of exceptional accomplishment. She has had the honour of playing at Scottish and European Parliaments, at the Queen’s 80th-birthday celebrations at Balmoral Castle and at the King of Thailand’s birthday celebrations in Bangkok.

Alina studied at the F. Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw, Poland (Masters in Arts), and The University of Arizona, USA (Masters in Music Performance).
