Hi, I’m Tia and I’m conducting the Orchestra again this year after enjoying it so much last year!. I’m going into my third year studying Natural Sciences. Music has been a big part of my life since about the age of 7 and since then I have tried my hand at many instruments! Before coming to uni I’d never tried conducting before but was keen to give it a go so had a go in one rehearsal. I have Henry to thank for encouraging me to audition to be a conductor and since then I’ve never looked back! Conducting can be nerve-wracking at times but seeing the ensemble come together and play their hearts out is so rewarding and I’m so proud of each and every member of the Orchestra! Outside of Music I enjoy playing badminton, challenging people at Just Dance or reeling off many facts about Eurovision! I look forward to meeting many new faces this coming year in Orchestra!
