THE second of the Fylde Arts midday recital series at Poulton Methodist Church, on Friday, will be given by the Malandra Duo – Maxine Isabella Molin (harp) and Debbie Adewale (flute).
Maxine was born in Manchester and studied at Chetham’s School of Music.
When she was 10 she won her first music festival and at 15 performed her first concerto at a concert in Manchester’s former Free Trade Hall.
Since then she has pursued a busy freelance career with some of the UK’s leading symphony and ballet orchestras.
She has also made many appearances as concerto and recital soloist.
Maxine has entertained royalty and worked with many celebrities in various concert venues, at major sports events and aboard cruise ships.
Debbie attended the junior department of the Royal Northern College of Music and later studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire where she graduated with a first class honours degree.
Since then she has taught privately and lectures in music theory at Liverpool University. She also regularly performs in recitals and chamber music ensembles in the North West.
