Meet WNO

Angus West

Section Principal Horn

Angus studied at the Royal Northern College of Music from 1978-82.

Prior to joining WNO, Angus worked as a contract player with Opera North and The Hallé. He was also an extra player with the Northern Sinfonia, BBC Northern/Philharmonic, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Scottish Opera amongst others.
