Additional Info: Singaporean oboist Bernice Lee is currently in her final year of Artist Diploma in oboe performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, under the tutelage of Gordon Hunt and Alison Teale. She was a Drake Calleja Trust Scholar for the 2018/19 year and is currently on a generous scholarship from the Guildhall School.

In 2016 shortly after graduating with a Bachelor of Music degree from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory in Singapore, Bernice won the President’s Young Performers’ Competition, providing her with the opportunity to give her concerto debut with the Singapore Symphony
Orchestra, performing Richard Strauss’ oboe concerto. In that same year, she toured Sir Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Les Misérables in Singapore and Dubai, playing the oboe and cor anglais.

An avid orchestral musician, she was the principal oboist of the Young Musicians’ Symphony Orchestra from 2017 to 2019. In addition, she has performed as principal oboist with the Guildhall Symphony Orchestra, the highlight being Sibelius’ Second Symphony under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle in July 2017. Later that year in December, Bernice performed live on Radio 3, Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Second Meeting for oboe and piano as part of BBC Symphony Orchestra’s Total Immersion Series.

Most recently in June 2019, Bernice performed at the Wigmore Hall as part of a 10-oboe ensemble for two pieces composed by David Bruce and John Woolrich respectively. From mid 2018 Bernice performed extensively as Guest Co-Principal Oboe with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and in November performed with the Trondheim Soloists on tour in Hong Kong.

Throughout her student years Bernice has participated actively in competitions, most recently winning first prize in the Rising Stars Grand Prix competition in Berlin in May 2018.
Having a passion for chamber music, she performed with the Cobbett Quartet at the Torroella Music Festival in Spain in July 2017. There, they performed the oboe quartets by Benjamin Britten, W.A. Mozart, Malcolm Arnold and Ernest Moeran. She has also performed Edgard Varese’s Octandre and György Ligeti’s Kammerkonzert with the Guildhall Ubu Contemporary Music Ensemble.
