James Horan, an original founding member, was appointed Principal Cor Anglais with BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in 1998. Lonarc Oboe Trio Publishing has been set up to publish James’ amazing repertoire of oboe trio arrangements and compositions so that other trios can enjoy them.

Owen  joined the Trio in 2007 when they re-formed after being offered a residency with the Grosvenor Estate Summer Festival for outdoor classical chamber concerts at Brown Hart Gardens and also at Spitalfields.
