Alice and Jessica Allan have been playing the classical guitar for twelve years and enjoy performing duets together. They enjoyed their first performance with RMVC November 2009. They are both currently studying at Southampton University- Alice is studying Music and Jessica is studying Environmental Science.

Previous performances include a Vivaldi concerto for two guitars, accompanied by members of East Berkshire Youth Orchestra and duets on school tours to New York (2005) and Salzburg and Venice (2007). They played in the Windsor Guitar Band for over 6 years, becoming accustomed to playing in ensembles. Both played in the family services at St Michaels and All Angels Church in Sunninghill, accompanying the congregation.

They enjoy playing a wide variety of music from Classical and Spanish styles to Popular music adapted for guitars, as well as composing their own pieces. As well as playing the guitar, they have sung in choirs, at school, in church and now at university. They hope to continue performing together and expanding their repertoire, and have a concert planned in May 2010, at St Michael’s church.
