Alison Green (bassoon)

Alison Green was born in Edinburgh and studied bassoon at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where she won the Governors’ Recital Prize and the Choral Conducting Prize. On completing her studies in Glasgow, she was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Scholarship and spent a most enjoyable year at the Conservatoire de Musique in Geneva. While in Switzerland, Green gained a lot of orchestral experience. This continued on her return to Scotland, where she freelanced and for several years was Principal Bassoon of the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.

Since 1990, Green has been Sub Principal Bassoon of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. She thrives on the variety of work which the Orchestra undertakes and has appeared as contrabassoon soloist in Strathclyde Concerto No 9 by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. She was also part of the experimental ensemble, SCO LAB , which culminated in Green being one of the soloists for the 2009 SCO tour of India with Amjad Ali Khan.

An important part of Green’s life in the Orchestra is her work with SCO Connect, the orchestra’s creative learning team. For ten years she was part of the very successful Bear Hunt project. More recently she has been working with other SCO musicians on the ground breaking ReConnect project which involves interactive music-making for people living with dementia.

Green also enjoys working with students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, teaching bassoon, chamber music and reed making. She tutors regularly for the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland.
