Katherine Bryan

Since making her concerto debut at the age of fifteen with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields in London, Katherine Bryan has performed as soloist with orchestras around the world. A winner of the prestigious Audi Music Competition, she won a full scholarship to study flute at the Juilliard School, was a prize winner at the Royal Over-Seas League Competition and Young Concert Artists International Competition in New York, and for three consecutive competitions was a finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year. The Royal Philharmonic Society awarded her the Julius Isserlis Scholarship. At the age of just twenty-one, she was appointed Principal Flute of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, a position she still holds while regularly serving as Guest Principal Flute with orchestras across the UK, Europe, and the United States of America. In 2017 she premiered a new concerto, The White Road, written for her by the Scottish composer Martin Suckling and co-commissioned by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Royal Scottish National Orchestra. She has appeared at major international festivals as both concerto soloist and recitalist and has given live broadcasts on Classic FM, BBC Radio 3, and BBC television. Her debut recording as soloist, playing works by Carl Nielsen, Lowell Liebermann, Francis Poulenc, and Georges Hüe with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra conducted by Paul Daniel, was released to great acclaim in September 2010. She released a second disc of concertos in May 2013, which included the first ever British recording of the Concerto by Christopher Rouse. Her third album, Silver Bow, a collection of transcriptions of music for violin and orchestra, one of Classic FM’s top twenty albums of 2015, was described by The Scotsman as ‘a breathtaking package’. A keen and gifted educator, Katherine Bryan is a lecturer in flute at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester, and in 2017 launched her International Flute Course, welcoming students from around the world to an intensive course in Scotland.
