Chris Barron is a third-year undergraduate student, studying with Patrick Harrild at the Royal Academy of Music.
Chris was a member of the tuba section of the National Youth Orchestra from 2016 to 2017. He was a quarter finalist in Philip Jones International Brass Ensemble Competition 2019, and a semi finalist in BBC Radio 2 Young Brass Award 2018.
" My ambition is to study as a postgraduate in Germany and work as an orchestral musician in Europe. To do this it is absolutely necessary to play the F tuba. With a loan instrument I am able to practice the F tuba every day, develop my proficiency on it as I save for my own, and audition at conservatories, orchestras and orchestra academies in Europe. "
