We have a patron:
Laurence Jackson, new WASO Concert Master has agreed to be our patron.
Between 1994 and 2006, Laurence led the Maggini Quartet, regularly touring the USA, Canada and Europe, to much critical acclaim. The quartet won a number of awards during this time, including
- The Gramophone Chamber Award in both 2001 and 2002
- Cannes Classical Award
- Diapason d’Or
- CHOC award for Le Monde de la Musique.
- Grammy Award nominations in 2004 and 2005
- Classical Brit Awards nomination
Laurence has considerable quartet coaching experience, on many courses throughout the UK and regular courses in Norway, and he is looking forward to meeting members of the Perth Chamber Music Association.
