Viola WH Lee (Chicago) ‘Storrs’ & bow Zucolotto (L’Archet Brasil) ‘Rothermere’

Agnes is a multi-instrumentalist with viola as her principal study. She has recently graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where she studied under violist Dorothea Vogel. Before specialising in viola at RWCMD, Agnes studied violin, piano, and composition at Junior Trinity-Laban Conservatoire while taking up various organ scholarships at churches around Greater London. She continues to play the organ regularly alongside her viola studies. Recently, she has earned a place at the Royal Northern College of Music for a Master of Performance degree in viola. Here, she hopes to continue refining her ability with the viola, gain more orchestral and chamber music experience and to acquire teaching skills.

“This loan has given me great enthusiasm for performing in masterclasses, ensembles and concerts, increasing my confidence and improving my abilities. It’s a wonderful instrument that has enabled me to explore different textures and colours of the viola, revealing its and my potential.”
