Kora Wuthier

Kora Wuthier was born in Kreuzlingen (Switzerland), where she received an education at the teacher training college. It was at a concert of the Irish group 'Clannad' that she encountered the Celtic Harp for the first time. Although being very enthusiastic about this instrument she first went in for studies in rhythmic at the Academy of Music in Vienna. Her unbroken enthusiasm for the Celic harp soon led her to the home countries of this instrument: Brittany, Scotland and Ireland.

She became a student of the Breton harpist Dominig Bouchaud, who teaches at Quimper Music Academy. Kora Wuthier regularly attends courses by harpists from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the USA and is a member of the Scottish Clarsach Society. She is teaching the Celtic harp at the Schools of Music in Rorschach, Kreuzlingen and Goldach in Eastern Switzerland and had introduced this instrument to the general public through numerous activities such as concerts, workshops, courses, lectures and newspaper articles.

Erika Brunner

Erika Brunner was born in Kreuzlingen (Switzerland). She studied the flute with H Keller at the Winterthur Conservatory, where she received her diploma. She is especially interested in the wooden transverse flute and its music. Additional areas of her musical experience include various courses in the construction and playing of instruments (Renaissance flutes, didgeridoo, and shakuhachi). During a trip to Brittany, she became enthusiastic about Celtic music.

She teaches flute and chamber music at the music school of Kreuzlingen, and regularly gives concerts with Kora Wuthier, celtic harp.
