Summer Concert 2024 – Featuring Joseph Horovitz’s Concerto for Oboe and Orchestra

Saturday, June 29th: 19:30 to 21:00

A Summer Concert with the Cornwall Concert Orchestra

We are looking forward to welcoming the fabulous oboist Amy Till (née Roberts) to play Joseph Horovitz’s Concerto for Oboe and Orchestra, composed in 1993.

Amy Till is Sub-Principal Oboe in the orchestra of the Welsh National Opera. She has also recently featured as guest principal with London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC NOW, BBC Symphony Orchestra and London Chamber Orchestra, and has spent several seasons at the Glyndebourne Festival.

Amy graduated from The Royal Academy of Music where she received a 1st Class MA with Chris Cowie, Ian Hardwick and Melanie Ragge. Previously she studied on the Joint Course between the Royal Northern College of Music and the University of Manchester studying oboe with Jonathan Small and baroque oboe with Tony Robson. She received a 1st from both institutions and won the RNCM Concerto Competition. Whilst at the Academy she also won the Evelyn Rothwell Oboe Prize, Janet Craxton Memorial Prize and Barry Grimaldi Cor Anglais Prize. In 2017 Amy entered the Barbirolli International Oboe Competition and received two prizes as a semi-finalist.

Amy is in demand as a soloist and chamber musician having become a 2019 PDGYA award winner with ‘Making Music’, commercially recorded the Villa Lobos Concerto Grosso and performed concertos by Albinoni, Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Martinu, MacMillan and Strauss. In 2023 she premiered Joshua Borin’s work ‘At Every Turn’ at the Barbican with the London Schools Symphony Orchestra.
