Lisa Gill

Lisa Gill was born in Adelaide, South Australia and has lived and worked in her home town ever since.  She began her musical life at the age of six when she started piano and singing lessons and one year later, she began studying the flute.

Lisa studied at Flinders Street School of Music where she was awarded an Advanced Diploma of Music (Performance) and a Bachelor of Music (Orchestral Studies).  She then graduated from the Elder Conservatorium of Music with Honours in 1999.  Throughout her tertiary studies, Lisa was a student of Elizabeth Koch and at the age of twenty-four replaced her teacher’s position of Second Flute with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.

In 1998, Lisa travelled to the United Kingdom to participate in International Flute Courses with William Bennett and Michael Cox and again studied with Michael when he visited Adelaide in 2001.  She also toured the South Pacific in 1999 with the Australian Youth Orchestra.

Lisa has been a prize-winner in Adelaide Eisteddfods from 1993–1996 and has also won the David Cubbin Prize (1997), Allans Prize and ZONTA Award (1997).  Lisa has been awarded distinctions for both AmusA and LmusA diplomas of the Australian Music Examinations Board.

Prior to her appointment with the ASO, Lisa performed extensively with the orchestra as a casual member from 1997 onwards.  She has performed with the Adelaide Chamber Orchestra, the Adelaide Philharmonia Orchestra, the STATE OPERA of South Australia, the Adelaide Art Orchestra, Co-Opera and the Adelaide Youth Orchestra – for which she was also a soloist.  Other highlights include performing as a soloist at the Elder Hall’s Lunchtime Concert Series as part of their JS Bach Festival in 2014.

Lisa has spent much of her professional life as a flute teacher, both privately as well as in several Adelaide schools, currently she is a staff member at Brighton Secondary School.  She has also been a flute tutor for the Adelaide Youth Orchestra, State Music Camp and the Elder School of Music.  Lisa has adjudicated various flute sections at the Adelaide Eisteddfod on several occasions and has previously been an active committee member of the Flute Society of SA.

Lisa is supported by Dr Tom & Sharron Stubbs via our Musical Chairs program.
