1995 - Jonathan Johnston

Flautist Jonathan Johnston from Temple, Co Down was NI Young Musician of the Year in 1995, and was successful in gaining a scholarship to the James Galway International Flute Seminar in Switzerland.  He attended the Royal Northern Academy of Music where he completed his BMus (Hons) in 2000. He has released a number of solo CDs, and over the years has given numerous concerts and recitals throughout the UK.  His freelance orchestral playing has presented the opportunity to play with the Ulster, City of Birmingham, London Philharmonic and London Symphony Orchestras. In more recent years he has focussed largely on performing as a “Headline Entertainer” on some of the world’s exclusive cruise ships.
