Helena Zambrano Quispe - violin
Helena was born in Łódź, Poland, and started to play the violin when she was 7 years old.
She studied at Warsaw Chopin University of Music, and then gained her Master's degree at the Hochshule der Kunst Bern (Switzerland). She moved to Scotland seven years ago, and is now a member of the Scottish Opera orchestra. She also plays with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
Chamber music is a passion of hers, and she really loves cross genre music projects.
