New Zealand-born oboist Thomas Hutchinson studied at the University of Auckland with Martin Lee and Alison Jepson. He moved to Melbourne to further his studies at the Australian National Academy of Music with Jeffrey Crellin, during which time he won the concerto competition and the prize for Most Outstanding Recital.
Following the advice of his teachers, Thomas traveled to France to study at the prestigious Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris with Jacques Tys, David Walter and Frédéric Tardy, where he graduated with 'mention très bien à l’unanimité, avec les felicitations du jury'.
As soloist, he has made numerous concerto appearances with orchestras including the Auckland Symphony Orchestra, Auckland Youth Orchestra, Bach Musica NZ, Orchestra Victoria, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, and the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra. In 2015, Thomas successfully auditioned as Associate Principal Oboe of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
Thomas was recently chosen as finalist for the ARD International Music Competition and will be traveling to Germany in September. This recital is presented in collaboration with the New Zealand Double Reed Society. Thomas will be accompanied by Dr Ya-Ting Liou.
