Mario Basilisco, Leader of St Bart's Orchestra

Mario was born in London and began his musical studies at the age of seven with his father on the flamenco guitar. In 1991 he was a finalist in the BBC Young Guitarist of the Year.

After becoming interested in the violin as a teenager and receiving a scholarship to study at the Centre for Young Musicians, he went on to Trinity College of Music where he completed his BMus. degree. Further scholarships enabled him to gain a postgraduate diploma as a student of Michael Bochmann.

Mario studied conducting with Peter Stark and was coached and participated in master classes with the Amadeus, Vellinger, Wihan string quartets and the Yonty Solomon and Ian Burnside piano trios.

In 2002 he was a finalist in the 'Vera Kantrovich Solo Bach Competition' and in 2003 won the first prize in both the 'Barbirolli string quartet' competition and the 'Cavatina Trust Chamber Music Competition'.
