In 1986 Gareth Mollison realised his student ambition by becoming Second Horn of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Enthusiasm for the Orchestra continued through Gareth's years as a student at the Royal Academy of Music: 'Even as a kid I used to bunk off school to listen to the LPO in rehearsal.'
Orchestral appointments include two seasons as Co-Principal Horn of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet and English National Opera as Second Horn. Shortly after joining the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 1986 Gareth became a student at the College of Psychic Studies in South Kensington. He has also gained a BA in Applied Philosophy at Middlesex University.
Attempts to invent a boost to income saw patents for ‘The Fat Trap’ and ‘The Music Business Game’. Gareth’s much-copied ‘International Cue Cards’ – a collection of pictures to facilitate language-free communication in restaurants – was briefly marketed by Go Travel. More recent channelling of the creative drive has produced three feature-length screenplays, leading to a period of research and learning including online courses from UCLA on screenwriting. Now with a young daughter, Gareth is hoping to find time to write again.
