Adrian Bornet
Sub-Principal Double Bass

Adrian Bornet started musical life as a cathedral chorister and lay clerk, going on to pick up not only piano, double bass, and tuba, but also enjoying photography, caving, farming and long distance motorcycling along the way.

He later read theology, before spending two years at the Royal College of Music where he studied with Adrian Beers and Rodney Slatford, gaining honours in Performance and an LGSM. He freelanced in London and was choirmaster at St. Giles Cripplegate before moving to Edinburgh to join the SCO. A dedicated teacher, Adrian is also involved in youth orchestra training and music education, and is co-founder of the Scottish Bass Trust.
