Since joining RCM last year Victoria Richmond has been performing left, right and centre – including the Marcello Oboe Concerto in a Student Spotlight concert.

‘My teacher John Anderson is truly inspirational. As a member of the RCM Chorus I had the enormous privilege of being conducted by Bernard Haitink in November, and the performance of Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloe with the RCM Symphony Orchestra was an unforgettable experience. 

In the orchestral auditions I was placed as Second Oboe in the RCM Philharmonic which was a great surprise for my first term. Our term project was Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony of which we gave an exciting performance. 

I’ve not been able to play the Cherubim cor anglais much recently as I have been getting used to College and developing my oboe technique, however I am very much looking forward to playing it soon. My next assignment is playing second oboe in Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto, Overture to Mitridate and Symphony No. 35 in the RCM Philharmonic which I am greatly looking forward to.’
