Aanu Sodipe

classical violinist & events soloist

Classicaanu is appreciated for her excellent communication of her passion for music; every song is carefully selected, every note has a touch of class, and every performance is one of eloquence. Her playing has impacted many, like the Worshipful Mayor of Southwark who invited her to play for the annual Holocaust Memorial Day service, held at the Imperial War Museum in 2020, the council described her performance as “moving and professional, ...with great depth and delicacy”.

About the music: Classicaanu is an expert of the unique style of repertoire that she offers - in addition to conventional violin classics, she plays Yoruba folk music with influences of the high quality classical training she receives from her study at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, London.

About the artist: For Aanu, music making started at church where she first learned to sing and to play the violin and piano. The community there was the first to influence her in the direction of making music, harmonising, and arranging. Her number one hobby is still to sit at the piano and explore harmonies and melodies for new song arrangements. She recently graduated with a 1st Class Bachelor's degree in Classical Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, and is now studying her masters in performance. This year she was awarded with the Rhona Reid Charitable Trust scholarship, the Helen Roll scholarship, and the TCL scholarship.
