Jason Henery, Double Bass

Jason started his musical education when he was five years old, playing the violin until the age of 11. By ten years of age he had picked up the Double Bass, having been taught by his father, and it steadily grew to be his passion. Now at age 15, Jason lives in Sydney and has played with the Sydney Youth Orchestra since 2012. 

What do you like about playing in an orchestra?

It's fun.

What are you most looking forward to on the 2016 International Tour?

The international bit.

What is your favourite AYO memory?

I have great memories from AYO. I think the best moments are at National Music Camp, where everyone is enjoying themselves and the social aspect is great.

What’s your favourite piece to play?

Playing the Prokofiev Symphony No. 5 with the AYO in 2015 was the most amazing piece I have ever played.
