Leigh Raymond

Violin

Leigh Raymond, a versatile musician and dedicated teacher, completed Honours at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music in the mid-nineties before accepting a scholarship to the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts. Returning to Australia, she completed a Master’s of Music before spending the next years working in diverse musical roles, including casual work with a number of Australia’s major orchestras and an assortment of contemporary music ensembles.

After wandering around Europe for a few years, Leigh took some time off music to fortify her mind with a double degree in philosophy and psychology at Melbourne University. She currently enjoys growing edible things, playing with the band Susy Blue, and taking on the varied challenges that life as a freelance musician throws her way.
