Soloists / Ensembles

Over the years, the EFT has helped dozens of musicians perform publicly. Below are short bios of the soloists and ensembles that we have helped. When available we have pasted links to the musicians’ own websites and/or community pages. Since 2001, we have given an annual Royal Over Seas League Arts award to outstanding soloists. See the complete list of ROSL Arts Award recipients here.
