Equally at home on historical and modern instruments, Whelan holds the position of Principal Bassoon with both the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. He has been described as a ‘phenomenon on the baroque bassoon’ (Crescendo magazine, Germany), whose performances feature ‘jaw-dropping dexterous virtuosity’ (Gramophone).
Whelan is the founder and Artistic Director of Ensemble Marsyas. Directing from the harpsichord, Whelan has led Ensemble Marsyas in performances at the Wigmore Hall, Dublin Castle and at the Lammermuir and Great Music in Irish Houses Festivals.
As director, Whelan has a particular passion for exploring and championing neglected and forgotten music of the Baroque era. Recent projects funded by The Irish Arts Council and Creative Scotland involved recreating music from the manuscripts and staging in live performance choral and symphonic music from eighteenth-century Dublin and Edinburgh.
