Welcome To Canterbury Mr Warwick Adeney! | Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s Former 20+ Year Concertmaster 🎻

After more than two decades as the Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s (QSO) Concertmaster, Mr Warwick Adeney has joined Canterbury College as a Studio Music Teacher.

Earlier this year, Warwick led and performed in his final concert – Ode To Joy – at QSO’s first Maestro Concert of the 2023 Season.

Born into a large family of violinists, he trained alongside three of his siblings at the Queensland Conservatorium, where he learnt under Dr Anthony Doheny.

Mr Adeney has been playing in orchestras since 1984, shortly after graduating as a Gold Medal graduate.

After graduation, Warwick joined the Queensland Theatre Orchestra under Georg Tintner and gained his prestigious Concertmaster status in 1989.

Warwick is married to Michele, a fellow musician, and is blessed with nine children, all of whom learn a variety of instruments.
