Outwith architecture he is a keen cellist, playing regularly with orchestras such as the Amicus Orchestra (of which he is a founding member), Scottish Sinfonia, The Waverley Consort and the Telemann Ensemble with which he recently performed Vivaldi’s concerto for two cellos. Since 2008, he and his wife Ancuţa have held annual Piano and Cello recitals for Hospices of Hope. To mark ten years of supporting the charity they hosted twenty concerts in their house, the culmination of which in December 2108 was a performance by Scotland’s Russian Choir, Russkaya Cappella. Their combined fundraising to date has raised over £20,000 and shared the amazing work that Hospices of Hope do to an ever growing base in the west of Scotland.
