The New London Chamber Ensemble are delighted to welcome newest member Fraser Gordon!
Fraser initially studied violin at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and upon graduation returned to study bassoon, graduating with First Class Honours and being awarded the Peter Morrison Prize for Excellence. After several busy years freelancing in Scotland, he was appointed to his current post as Principal Contrabassoon of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in 2011, serving on the Board of Directors for five years. He is a regular guest player with orchestras around the UK as well as participating in several recent projects with the World Orchestra for Peace. Fraser is a member of staff at the Royal Academy of Music and is an active musician in the RPO’s Community & Education programme: RPO Resound.
Fresh from a recent successful performance with the NLCE at the Big Malarkey Festival, Fraser says he is “looking forward to working with the group on their exciting future projects including newly commissioned works written especially for NLCE as well as getting to perform some gems from the existing wind chamber repertoire.”
