After growing up in Bude, Idony attended the Royal College of Music and graduated with a First Class Degree in 2019. She then returned to study on their Master of Performance course, from which she has just graduated with a Distinction. She has been fortunate enough to play with prestigious orchestras including the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the English National Opera Orchestra, the Young Musicians’ Symphony Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Idony has been teaching woodwind and piano for 7 years and has recently started a teacher training course with the aim of combining her two passions of music and learning.
I am very grateful to the Blanchminster Trust, without whom I wouldn’t have been able to afford my instruments or my studies. They have been a huge support throughout my career so far and I look forward to working with them and the Bude Concert Orchestra in the (hopefully not too distant!) future.
