Lachlan Radford (bass) has worked with several world-class orchestras, including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Southbank Sinfonia. He also performs regularly as a chamber musician and soloist and joined the Berkeley Ensemble in 2011.
Outside of the classical world, Lachlan is currently Director of Music in DJ Yoda’s hip-hop super-group Breakfast of Champions. He has also performed and recorded with award-winning artists such as More Like Trees, Reeps One, Joe Driscoll, MC Tali and Hannah Curwood.
Lachlan’s enthusiasm for passing on his musical experience to a younger generation is informed by his diverse and genre-defying background. His ethos is to always learn from the musicians that surround him, a key aspect of his teaching at Junior Guildhall. Lachlan plays on a Jérôme Thibouville-Lamy bass and uses the Kaplan Medium Tension Strings by D’Addario as a D’Addario Orchestral Artist.
