MusiciansSola Hughes

Sola is a recent graduate of the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University where she studied with Michele Walsh and Natsuko Yoshimoto. 

Her love of chamber music has led her to take part in chamber music festivals including the Stradbroke Chamber Music Festival, the Australian Festival of Chamber Music and Musical Chairs in Montreal. She has recorded with 4MBS, once with string quartet for the Beethoven Marathon and also with string trio as a winner of the Ross Peters Chamber Music Prize. Sola has also performed with Ensemble Q as a mentee.

She began her orchestral journey with QYS in 2015 and since then joined AYO, leading the AYO young symphonists in 2018 and playing in the international tour orchestra in 2019. 

As a soloist, Sola has performed the Stravinsky Violin Concerto with the Conservatorium Orchestra, Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the Redlands Sinfonia and with Orchestra Concertino.

She hopes to become an expressive and dynamic performer who can connect with the audience, like her musical heroes Ivry Gitlis and Amy Winehouse. She especially loves the magical music of Ravel.

Sola is looking forward to joining ANAM as a first year in 2023 where she will be studying with Sophie Rowell.
