Congratulations to violinist Eliza Scott who has recently graduated from the Royal College of Music, London with her Masters in Performance degree. Eliza successfully auditioned at the Royal College for this prestigious and highly competitive degree course in 2018 and continued her post-graduate studies in London with support from the Australia Council of the Arts.
Eliza left the UK earlier this year due to the covid lockdown and completed her studies online. Her final Masters Recital was recorded in Brisbane in Term 3 so click on the link to hear her play.
Eliza joined NECOM as a string teacher earlier this year and teaches violin, conducts string ensembles and coaches in our chamber ensemble program. She is an inspirational teacher and music educator and we are very proud of her outstanding achievements.
Eliza started violin lessons at the age of three and her love of music and performing grew from there. She was the Concertmaster of the Armidale Youth Orchestra and went on to complete her undergraduate studies at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University receiving First Class Honours and the University Medal. A passionate orchestral musician, Eliza performed with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and the Southern Cross Soloists during her time in Brisbane.
Eliza was a member of the Australian Youth Orchestra for many years and held the position as principal second violin of the orchestra in 2018 and 2019 and the AYO featured Eliza in one of its video promotions in 2018 when she moved to London for her post-graduate studies. Her final orchestral performance at the Royal College of Music was on 8 March this year under the baton of Sir Antonio Papano in SanSaint-Saëns Symphony No 3 – look at for Eliza in the outside 3rd desk of the first violins.
