ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Amogh Ananth (violin) is a versatile and passionate violin soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player with a rich variety of concert experience. He regularly performs with the Melbourne Youth Orchestra, Monash Academy Orchestra, Australasian Orchestra and various community/youth chamber ensembles. 

During his fourteen years at Huntingtower School, Amogh was extremely devoted to serving the music department, which led to him being awarded a bursary scholarship in Year 12 for outstanding commitment.

Amogh has just finished a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Music at Monash University, where he learnt from Dr. Elizabeth Sellars. He also undertook overseas chamber music and soloist development units in Prato and New York. In 2018, two of his most memorable experiences were accompanying William Barton at the Melbourne Recital Centre and participating in Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. 

Harrison Lam (piano) grew up in a musical family and has studied piano from an age of 5 with his mother Annabella Fung who is also a piano teacher, having achieved Grade 5 AMEB by the young age of 13. Later on, Harrison studied under the tutelage of Darryl Coote from Team of Pianists to complete his Bachelor of Music at Monash University (2019).

Harrison currently maintains just shy of 30 piano students per week, teaching in music schools and privately in his private music studio.
