Adam Walker Flute Masterclass

Open masterclass with Adam Walker, Principal Flute, London Symphony Orchestra

Stockbridge Parish Church

Wednesday 18th September 10am to 1pm 

St Mary’s Music School, is delighted to announce a public masterclass by Adam Walker, Principal Flute with the London Symphony Orchestra, on Wednesday 18th September 2019 at Stockbridge Parish Church in Edinburgh. The masterclass is one of a series of free events offered by Scotland’s national music school which are open to young musicians, teachers and parents.

Adam Walker was appointed principal flute of the London Symphony Orchestra in 2009 at the age of just 21 and received the Outstanding Young Artist Award at MIDEM Classique in Cannes. In 2010 he won a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship Award and was shortlisted for the Royal Philharmonic Society Outstanding Young Artist Award. He is recognised as being "at the forefront of a new generation of wind soloists." 

As a soloist Adam regularly performs with the major UK orchestras including the BBC Philharmonic, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Hallé, Bournemouth Symphony, City of Birmingham Symphony and is a regular visitor to the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

A committed chamber musician with a curious and creative approach to repertoire and programming, recital highlights over recent seasons have included LSO St. Luke’s, De Singel, City of London Festival, Newbury Spring Festival, Musée du Louvre, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festspiele and the Utrecht, West Cork, Delft and Moritzburg Chamber Music Festivals. Adam appears regularly at the Wigmore Hall where he has recently worked with Brett Dean, pianists Angela Hewitt and James Baillieu, guitarist Morgan Szymanski and singers Ailish Tynan and Karina Gauvin. In 2017 Adam was selected to take part in the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s prestigious “CMS Two” programme for the 2018 – 2020 seasons, an opportunity that will allow him to continue to expand his chamber music horizons in new and exciting directions.

About the masterclass

In this public masterclass Adam will work with six young musicians and will provide them with advice on technique and musicianship. There will be the opportunity to hear Adam play and to ask questions at the end. 

Tickets are free but must be reserved online.
