Oliver Coates

Still in his twenties, cellist Oliver Coates receives the award for diverse and virtuosic performances with ensembles including Aurora Orchestra, London Contemporary Orchestra and London Sinfonietta. Meanwhile, the playing and eclectic programming of his Harmonic Series has drawn a new classical audience to the Southbank Centre, where he is artist-in-residence.
