Alice Thompson

Alice Thompson spent an exciting summer 2016 touring with the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester,
performing with them as their principal flute in London at the BBC Proms and in Germany and Italy.
Now back in London, Alice continues to play with Southbank Sinfonia 2016 and will perform with
them as soloist in the first part of the Ibert flute concerto in mid October. Before commencing
Southbank Sinfonia in January 2016, Alice completed her Master of Music Degree (July 2015) at
the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague under the tutelage of Thies Roorda. Her studies were
generously supported by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust and the Musicians Benevolent
Fund. She then toured Europe as principal flute and principal piccolo with the European Union
Youth Orchestra. In 2012 Alice graduated with First Class Honours from her BMus(hons)
Performance Degree at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Here, she studied with
Anna Noakes. She was also awarded the TCM Trust's Silver Medal Award for her outstanding
contribution to the Woodwind, Brass and Percussion department.
Alice is looking forward to Exploring Finnish repertoire in Spring 2017 with her Finnish guitarist duo
partner (Just A Duo), Antero Pellikka, as they both eagerly await their commission from the
celebrated Finnish composer Adam Vilagi.
" I really enjoy teaching because I believe that every individual young or old can benefit from music. Music has the ability to create understanding, help communication and to unite people. I enjoy helping every student to reach their individual full potential and I find that teaching at the Conservatoire is particularly rewarding because each student is allowed to flourish without the added pressure of being expected to take exams.
