About Mina

Flautist
London
Flute player based in London and the Northamptonshire area.

Mina Middleton began playing the flute at the age of 9 before being recommended to audition for Chetham's School of Music. She was successful and started in September 2011. There she studied with Belinda Gough, Laura Jellicoe and Katherine Bryan. She has been very fortunate to also have taken part in masterclasses with many eminent flautists including Emily Beynon, Andrea Oliva, Robert Winn, Adam Walker, Samuel Coles, Gareth Davies, Michael Cox, Gitte Marcussen and Kate Hill. Significant engagements during her time at Chetham's include lunchtime recitals for the Oundle International Festival of 2014, the Sir William Walton Autumn concert series of 2014 in Ischia, Italy with her guitar partner and the Leeds 2015 International Concert Season. She also had the opportunity to perform in a wind quintet alongside woodwind players from the Hallé in a 'Chetham's meets Hallé' collaboration concert in January 2016. Mina played regularly with the Chetham's Symphony Orchestra and it was with this orchestra that she made her concerto debut playing Nielsen's flute concerto at The Bridgewater Hall under Ilyich Rivas in July 2016. As a member of the National Youth Orchestra in 2014 and 2015, Mina enjoyed performing in major venues around the country such as Leeds Town Hall, the Barbican, Royal Festival Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Snape Maltings and the Sage Gateshead. Additionally, she performed with them in live and televised broadcasts as part of the 2014 and 2015 BBC Proms. She also played with the NYO at the the Konzerthaus in Berlin for the Young Euro Classic festival of 2015. Mina is currently in her third year at the Royal Academy of Music in London where she is studying with Michael Cox. She previously had Kate Hill for her first two years.
