We are extremely privileged to have had an original piece of music composed for the OneOak project.
Anna Hemery composed the music and coined the name – the “OneOak Trio”. The trio comprised violin and piano (Anna Hemery) and cello (played by husband Nick Cooper).
Anna has played with many leading orchestras and theatre companies in Britain and internationally. She has composed and recorded sound tracks for film and television, and in popular music worked with Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra. She also teaches violin.
Nick Cooper’s career includes playing for the London Symphony Orchestra, Balanescu Quartet, Gavin Bryars Ensemble, Szlani Quartet. He has performed with jazz musicians including John Surman & Tran4mation, the late Michael Brecker, Michael Reissler, Kurt Elling and the Folk Fiddler Chris Wood. He also works periodically at The National Theatre and for the Royal Shakespeare Company and has a number of solo cello credits for film and TV.
We will include the OneOak Trio music as the soundtrack to the film being produced by our volunteer team from the University of Oxford’s Film Unit. The film will be released in April and available for download on our website.
The OneOak Trio music now plays for viewers of our homepage.
