Prima Vista is an energetic ensemble that approaches the baroque repertoire with a very original and imaginative interpretation.

While studying at Trinity Laban Cobservatoire of Music & Dance, Adel Sahnoun and Petra Hadjuchova founded Prima Vista and were coached by Anna Noakes, James Johnstone, Stephen Preston, Pamela Thorby and Dan Laurin. They have now both graduated and are emerging into the professional world.
