Archie Lamont-Bowden

Archie is 17 years old and is entering his final year of school at St Peter’s College in 2023.

He has been playing the violin for 8 years and, having gained distinction in his Trinity College Grade 8 exam in 2019,  is currently working towards his LTCL diploma. He is the concertmaster of his school’s orchestra and in 2022 participated in the NZCT chamber music contest, reaching the Northern Regional Finals.

Music is his passion along with the beach and the sunshine, and in his spare time he loves reading, painting, the outdoors and, recently, film photography.
