Soloist: Anna Cooper

 

Originally from Gisborne, Anna started playing the flute at age 12, and at 16 gained an ATCL Diploma with Distinction.  Anna completed a Bachelor of Music (First Class Honours) studying with Luca Manghi, and Bachelor of Arts (Politics and International Relations) at the University of Auckland.

Anna has played casually with the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra and Auckland Chamber Orchestra. In 2017, she completed a Fellowship with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Internship with Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra. She is twice a past member of the National Youth Orchestra, and was principal flute of the Auckland Youth Orchestra in the 2016-17 seasons. Anna has been the winner of the University of Auckland Graduation Gala Concerto Competition, and was awarded the Woodwind Prize at the Gisborne International Music Competition in 2015.

Anna has had a long association with Concert Bands, and in 2013 established the University of Auckland Concert Band. While on a university exchange in Italy, she attempted to join a concert band but due to language barrier found herself at a marching band competition a few weeks later!
