Describe yourself in 10 words: Keen on bassoon and hiking. I've packed boots and reeds!

What do you hope to learn from going on the 2019 AYO International Tour?

I'm excited to see lots of new concert halls and learn what different ones are out there, and also about developing a cohesive orchestral sound over the month.

What do you like most about playing in an orchestra?

I really enjoy working as part of a team, and blending with my colleagues, whilst still having the freedom to present my own ideas.

What is your favourite AYO memory?

Playing Mahler Symphony No.4 with Antony Hermus conducting, in the Melbourne Recital Centre on Feb season in 2018. It was just so much fun, the orchestra had such a unified, energised vision, and the bassoons got to sit next to the horns. What could be better?
