Kamilla Arku, piano Since her recital debut at St. Martin’s-in-the-Fieds’ renowned ‘Pianists of the World’ series, Norwegian-Liberian pianist Kamilla Arku has performed as a soloist and chamber musician at festivals and recitals across the world. Recent highlights include concerts in Munich, London and Monrovia; appearances on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio London; chamber music performances with Stephen Kovacevich, Alice Zawadzki and Leon Bosch; and collaborations with visual artists Jordan Söderberg Mills and Amale Freiha Khlat, as well as filmmaker Patrick Hamm.

Kamilla is committed to volunteer efforts, and is the Founder and Director of Music for Liberia, a charity which supports children and education in Liberia, West Africa. In 2012 the President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf thanked Kamilla and Music for Liberia’s artists for their ‘generosity and compassion to help us address a critical problem.’ In recognition of her work with Music for Liberia, she was also recently awarded a Jack Petchey Award for her service to young people. In 2020, Kamilla also launched the education initiative #EveryVoiceChallenge, a curated collection of piano music which promotes composers of colour to piano teachers and students. Kamilla is a graduate of Yale University (YC ‘05) and the Royal Northern College of Music. She is currently based between London and Berlin.
