What is your main occupation at the moment?
I am a second year, scholarship student at the Royal Academy of Music, specialising in bassoon and contra bassoon.
What made you choose to play your instrument and how old were you when you started?
What made you choose the concerto that your will be playing?
I love the variety of characters and the humour Mozart incorporates into this concerto! It gives a performer so much scope to play! Additionally, out of all the solo bassoon repertoire, the second movement is one of the pieces I most enjoy playing! The opportunity to perform it with an orchestra really excites me!
What do you feel you would gain from the experience of winning this competition and playing your concerto with ERSO and Chris Stark?
