As a soloist, Peter has given recitals at West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge; St-Martin-in-the-Fields, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Foundling Museum, and has performed concertos with the Penzance Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Academy of Music’s Baroque Ensemble.
Peter is currently a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra, and played principal oboe with them on their Summer 2011 tour to Austria, Germany and Italy, conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy and Jaap van Sveden. Peter has also played with many of the Royal Academy’s orchestras and ensembles as well as the Cambridge University Chamber Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.
Peter is very grateful to be assisted in his studies by the Charles Leggett Award from the Musician’s Benevolent Fund, the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, the Martin Musical Fund and the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst.
When not playing the oboe, Peter enjoys cheese, both edible and musical. He loves musicals, and occasionally writes his own and then persuades people to put them on. His most recent creation: The Crystal Maze Musical is currently being recorded and the satirical review of his Cambridge college (Girton – the Musical!) was recently performed for the fifth year running! His favourite cheese is Cambozola.
