Hailing from Brisbane, Hamish Jamieson completed his Bachelor of Music at Queensland Conservatorium in 2019 where he studied under Meta Weiss and Molly Kadarauch. This year, Hamish will commence his second year at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) under Howard Penny.
At ANAM in 2020, Hamish successfully auditioned for the Mahler Chamber Orchestra Academy which was to take place in Germany in December, but unfortunately, this program was cancelled due to COVID-19. Online, Hamish participated in ANAM masterclasses throughout the year with artists such as Wolfgang Emanuel-Schmidt, Stefan Faludi and Umberto Clerici.
Hamish was very fortunate to participate in the ANAM at NGV program where he had the opportunity to compose responses to a collection of Australian artworks on display at the Ian Potter Centre at Federation Square in Melbourne. The creative process of responding to visual stimulus was a very rewarding experience for Hamish.
During his undergraduate studies, Hamish was the winner of the 2018 Basil Jones Sonata Prize. In 2019, Hamish was accepted into the Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO) seasonal programs as well as their Chamber Players and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (ASO) Fellowship programs. Hamish is now a casual musician with the ASO. At AYO Chamber Players, Hamish had the opportunity to work with the vibrant Dover Quartet and legendary double bassist Edgar Meyer. Hamish is excited to be joining the AYO in their 2021 seasons program.
Hamish’s passion for music is wide and all-inclusive. In addition to his classical training, Hamish has found growth as a jazz saxophonist and improviser.
