 Modern Violinist

Cameron Jamieson has earnt a reputation as one of Melbourne's most vibrant, multi-skilled and happiest violinists. He believes in the unbroken commitment to passionate performance every day and is fuelled by a deep warmth in never taking the joy of making all types of music for granted.

A talent recognized from a young age, Cameron drew attention with his expressive rhetorical performance approach and cheerfully ambitious attitude. At age 14, he was named the best musician in the Queensland Youth Music Awards taking out all 3 prizes and performing Kabalevsky Concerto at the Brisbane City Hall. 3 years later, he performed Vivaldi's Summer at the Bonyi International Music Festival at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. Cameron also demonstrated remarkable leadership skills as a young boy and was chosen as concertmaster for ensembles such as the Greater Public Schools Combined Orchestra (2006 & 2007).

After completing his Bachelor of Music (Advanced Performance) at the Queensland Conservatorium, Cameron studied for three years at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) with teachers William Hennessy and Dr Robin Wilson. As a soloist during these years, he performed Mozart's fifth violin concerto with the Conservatorium Chamber Orchestra (2011), Meditation with Opera Scholars Australia (2015), and Bruch's Violin Concerto (2015) and The Lark Ascending (2016) with Essendon Symphony Orchestra. During his studies at ANAM, he performed as concertmaster of the ANAM Orchestra and was co-director with internationally acclaimed pianist Paavali Jumppanen (2013), and a finalist and winner of the 3mbs Listeners' Award in the ANAM Chamber Music Competition (2015).

Cameron is an acclaimed chamber musician and is regularly invited as a guest artist with many ensembles, festivals and institutions around Australia, including the Melbourne Chamber Players, Southern Cross Soloists, the Four Winds Festival and Play On. Cameron also currently performs with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Western Australian Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Victorian Opera, Orchestra Victoria, Camerata Chamber Orchestra, The Production Company, Life Like Company and The Impossible Orchestra.

As part of his skill set, Cameron equally enjoys the high energy style of pop, electronic and jazz performances and is a regular in the studio recording for albums, film and television.
