Fergus is a Grade 9 French Immersion student who lives in Kentville. He began violin lessons when he was five years old with his instructor Dominic Woo, Concertmaster of the Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra. Through Dominic’s inspiration and expertise, and more recently with his current instructor, Jennifer Jones, Fergus has developed an appreciation and love for violin and classical music. Playing violin has now become a major part of Fergus’ life.
Fergus has enjoyed performing at a variety of venues including Christmas concerts, daycares, nursing homes, and neighbourhood and family gatherings. Fergus’ favourite violin player is Ray Chen, an Australian violinist. He is following Ray Chen on YouTube and is hoping to one day meet him in person.
Besides playing violin, Fergus enjoys travel. He has traveled in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Fergus also loves outdoor activities including hiking, biking, and being immersed in a variety of natural settings. This is Fergus’ third season with NSYO, and he is very much looking forward to new adventures and challenges.
