Mandhira de Saram

Accomplished violinist Mandhira de Saram was born in London and, after completing her primary education in Sri Lanka, took up a music scholarship at North London Collegiate School. She was also a Leverhulme Scholar at the Junior Royal Academy of Music and went on to graduate with first class honours from Oxford University, where she received the Worcester College Arts Prize for the highest result in an arts subject.

Mandhira now performs extensively as a soloist and chamber musician around the UK and abroad, including tours in the USA, India and Sri Lanka. Her repertoire is varied, consisting of standard classical works, as well as new and experimental pieces.

Mandhira is also the founding member of the recently formed Ligeti Quartet, a string quartet devoted to promoting 20th and 21st century music. The group also specialises in improvisation and multimedia projects and has tours scheduled in South East China and Hong Kong.
