With the search for our next apprentice underway we hear from 2018 & 2016 apprentices, Oscar Holch and Emily Pond.
“The Edinburgh Quartet are incredibly welcoming and create an atmosphere of spontaneity and creativity that I haven't experienced in a chamber music context before. I have learnt so much from the experience and can’t wait for our next project together."
Oscar Holch, current EQ Apprentice
"Winning the competition was an absolute honour! I thoroughly enjoyed playing with the quartet from the moment I sat down in the audition. I knew going into the audition that I wanted to enjoy the experience of playing with them there and then no matter what the outcome was. Going on to win was a bonus and wonderful surprise! I had one of the best weeks of my life performing with them."
Emily Pond, EQ Apprentice 2016
