Arthur Adams-Close

Arthur is currently in his second year of studying a BMus majoring in Classical Performance Voice at the University of Auckland, where he learns under the tutelage of Dr. Te Oti Rakena.

An avid singer and violin player throughout his time at high school, Arthur turned to the viola to broaden his orchestral horizons at the start of 2017. His aspirations include being a well-renowned opera singer and orchestral conductor, and he is very much looking forward to the challenges and joys that AYO will present this year.
