Masterclass with Aura Stone, double bass
Born in Yorkshire, England, Aura took up the double bass aged 9. A scholarship student with Thomas Martin at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, she relocated to Dublin to join the RTE National Symphony Orchestra in 1996. Subsequently appointed sub-principal double bass, she held this position until 2016. As principal bass of the Orchestra of St Cecilia, she performed the entire series of Bach church cantatas, over a period of 10 years.

A sought after freelance performer, she now enjoys the variety and diversity of a freelance career, touring the world performing concerts with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, Ulster Orchestra, Camerata Ireland, RTE Concert Orchestra, and Wexford Festival Opera. A hugely experienced recording artist, Aura has participated in multiple live broadcasts, film sessions, CD and TV recordings.

With a keen interest in chamber music, Aura has performed all of the major chamber works that include the double bass.
An enthusiastic teacher and educator, in 2013 Aura co-founded classicalkids, a concert series for babies and adults. Beginning in Dublin, it rapidly expanded to include venues throughout the country.
