Mitchell Berick

Mitch began playing the clarinet at the age of eight in his childhood home of Newcastle, NSW. He attended Newcastle Conservatorium where he graduated with first class honours and the University Medal after studying with Frank Celata from the Sydney Symphony and Margery Smith. Mitch then travelled to London to take up a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music where he studied with Mark Van der Weil of the Philharmonia Orchestra and Nicholas Rodwell of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. He also had bass clarinet lessons with Richard Addison of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra during his time there.  Upon returning to Australia Mitch undertook further study at the Australian National Academy of Music with David Thomas from the Melbourne Symphony and subsequently took up the position of Principal Bass Clarinet with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra in August, 2010.

Mitch has performed as guest Principal Clarinet with the Australian Chamber Orchestra on a number of occasions and has also been guest Principal Clarinet with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria. Mitch has also performed extensively with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.

Mitch has a strong interest in all types of performance and as such has performed chamber music at many venues throughout Australia including Melbourne’s Melba Hall, Adelaide’s Elder Hall and live for ABC Classic FM. Mitch also made his concerto debut with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra in 2014.

Mitchell is supported by Nigel Stevenson & Glenn Ball via our Musical Chairs program.
