A young aspiring oboist, Bridget Wong studies at Brighton Secondary School through the Special Interest Music program. She also plays wonderfully on both the GuzHeng (Chinese Harp) and piano. Having migrated from Singapore to Adelaide, she has been blessed with an abundance of opportunities to learn and perform with so many mentors at so many places, such as Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Double Reed Big Blow, Festival of Music, Adelaide Youth Orchestra, Music Camps, School of Chinese Music & Arts, JEMS, Adelaide Eisteddfod, Brighton School Orchestras, various Concert Bands, and most recently at Recitals Australia. Outside of music, she works hard on academics and occasionally plays badminton.

Simón Quintana

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.
