Calum Cook
Calum is currently sub-principal cello with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Since turning professional, Calum has been a busy orchestral musician performing with orchestras such as the BBC Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, and the Philharmonia. He also tours extensively with the English Chamber Orchestra, and has appeared as guest principal with the orchestras of Opera North, Scottish Opera and the BBC Concert Orchestra.
Calum has enjoyed a variety of successes in competition. He was a finalist in the Concerto class at the Edinburgh Music Festival in '95, he won a gold medal at the British Federation of Festivals in '97, and in '98 reached the string final of the BBC Young Musician's competition. He also took part in the '99 Aberdeen International Youth Festival winning the Skene Award audience prize, and at the Royal College of Music, won both the Helen Just prize and the Wills Gordon prize for cello.
Calum was born in Inverness, and began playing the cello at the age of 6. He studied at St. Mary's Music School, Edinburgh, and later at the Yehudi Menuhin School in Surrey, before winning a Scholarship to the Royal College of Music in London, where he obtained a BMus(hons) degree. During his time at school, Calum gave numerous concerts both at home and abroad. Notable performances include a solo performance at the Kronberg Festival in Germany, a recital as part of the Gordonstoun School Concert series, a number of chamber concerts including Schubert's Quintet in C at the Fairfield Halls, and a performance of Messiaen's Quartet for The End of Time, in Edinburgh. Calum made his concerto debut at the age of 16, performing the Brahms Double Concerto for Violin and Cello, and has recently performed the Schumann concerto with the Cardiff Bay Chamber Orchestra in Wales.
