Klio Blonz


Klio Blonz, flautist, studied at the Paul Dukas Conservatoire in Paris (‘Premier Prix’) and at Trinity College of Music (MMus, PGDip). She has also completed an Aesthetics / Philosophy of Art Degree, at the Paris I - La Sorbonne University.

Since the beginning of her career Klio has performed extensively both as a soloist and ensemble player in France, Greece, Bulgaria, Ireland and the UK. Festival appearances include the Mayfield Festival collaborating with Theatre Alive! , Sani Festival, Demetria Festival and the International Music Festival of Cyclades in Greece. She has appeared with orchestras and ensembles such as the Wallace Ensemble, Classical Soloists, Haydn Chamber Orchestra, Orion Orchestra, Tempus Orchestra and the Royal Chamber Orchestra of Denmark. In 2007 she completed Glimpse of Japan, a series of concerts in the UK inspired by Japanese traditional and contemporary art forms. Her special interest in contemporary music has led her to work with new composers commissioning and giving premieres at the Queen Elizabeth Hall/Foyer, Blackheath Halls, St James’s Piccadilly, St Martin-in-the-Fields, the Foundling Museum and the Hellenic Centre in London. Klio is a also co-founder of the Leto Ensemble which has been broadcast by BBC Radio 3 and is active performing in the U.K. and abroad.

Klio is currently teaching the flute at the Blackheath Conservatoire, the Thomas's Day School and the Blackheath High School in London. Very passionate about music in the early years, she has also been busy working as an early years outreach project leader for Trinity College of Music, providing training for BMus Trinity students and delivering early years music workshops for the under fives in schools, museums and children's centres.

If Klio were stranded on a desert island, she would like to have with her:
Lascia Ch'io Pianga, Handel
Ain't Got No/I Got Life, Nina Simone
Blowin’ in the Wind, Bob Dylan


 

"I love to teach because it allows me to share my passion for music and connect with both children and adults alike. It is like planting a beautiful little grain which, with the right care, will never stop growing."
