Dan has played the violin for as long as he can remember. Forced to practice until the age of 21 he won various awards through his university years, including the UQ Musica Viva prize for chamber music, the UTAS Vice-Chancellor’s string scholarship, and the D&MV Travelling Scholarship which allowed him to study in London.. Returning to Australia he graduated with first class honours and embarked on a Masters degree, after which he went back to his birthplace Singapore to fulfil his military and finally become a man. Sgt Dan now freelances with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Camerata of St. John’s, the Queensland Pops Orchestra, and various ensembles in Brisbane and Sydney, including his band Orsino’s Safari. He considers himself extremely fortunate to be able to play the violin for living.
