What is your earliest musical memory?

Probably teaching myself the recorder when I was about 6 or listening to my parents choice of music - Neil Diamond!

If you weren’t a musician, what would you be?

I'd like to be a millionaire property developer.

What is on your CD/MP3 Player/Spotify playlist right now?

OMD Greatest Hits.

What is your favourite Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra recording?

My favourite recording is the first one I did with the orchestra: Tchaikovsky Manfred Symphony conducted by Vasily Petrenko.

What is your most memorable moment with the Orchestra so far?

There have already been quite a few! I think Playing Prokofiev's 5th Symphony on tour in Prague.

Outside of music what are your passions and interests?

Music takes up a lot of my time, but I play a bit of squash. I like discovering all the quirky pubs and sampling the different ales in Liverpool and I have formed a pub quiz team!
