 Baroque Violinist

Cameron has always been passionate about the clean, earthy qualities of refined baroque playing. This year he has performed as concertmaster of the Melbourne Baroque Orchestra, associate concertmaster of the Australian Haydn Ensemble and principle second violinist of Genesis Baroque.

Whilst pursuing self education through the seminal texts, Cameron travelled to Italy, in 2017, to attend the International School of Improvisation directed by Davide Monti with rhetoric lectures by Francesca Gualandri.

This followed studies in 17th and 18th Century Performance Practice under Peter Roennfeldt with rhetoric lectures by Gregory Massingham at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music.

Cameron has received additional baroque performance direction and tutoring from Lucinda Moon, Shaun Lee-Chen, Rachael Beesley, Stephen Freeman, Matthew Greco and Ben Dollman performing alongside all of these artists.

He also performs as part of Bach Akademie Australia, Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra, Ludovico's Band, Canberra Bach Ensemble as well as with the Woodend Winter Arts Festival Orchestra, University of Melbourne's early music department orchestra and Scots' Church Orchestra.

Between these larger programs, Cameron has performed in chamber ensembles including leading Ludovico's Band at the Melbourne Recital Centre, in a quartet with Meg Cohen, Simon Oswell and Rosanne Hunt launching a new series at St. Stephen's Richmond, in a trio for the Melbourne Club with Katie Yap and Rosanne Hunt and in quartet and chamber programs by Genesis Baroque and Melbourne Baroque around Victoria.

Cameron plays an anonymous German violin circa 1800, a baroque bow by Solange Chivas circa 2012 & classical bow by Matthew Coltman circa 2000
