Joaquin is a violinist and a Year 12 music scholar at Pulteney Grammar School. He is studying under the tutelage of Elizabeth Layton, and is influenced greatly by the music of both Itzhak Perlman and Hilary Hahn. Among his various achievements, he was the recipient of the Michael Rowe violin at the 2019 Adelaide Eisteddfod, gave a solo performance with the Mitcham Orchestra, and in 2020 was the Rotary Club of Mitcham Young Musician of the Year. Joaquin was also the featured soloist at the recent Adelaide Youth Orchestra Maestro 2 Concert in July of this year. Joaquin is the concertmaster of the Adelaide Youth Orchestra and the first violin of the Adelaide Youth Orchestra String Quartet.

Simón obtained his Bachelor of Music with First Class Honours at the Elder Conservatorium of Music under the tutelage of Stefan Ammer. In May 2018, he performed Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.5 (“Emperor”) with the Elder Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra under the baton of maestro James Lowe. Later that year he was awarded the 2018 Peter Schodde Memorial Piano Scholarship which facilitated him travelling to Germany, Austria and England, and playing for highly respected professors and performers to further his technical abilities and musicianship.
