Nicolas Fleury began his studies of French and natural horn at the age of eight. After completing his studies, first at the Nantes Conservatoire and later in Rueil Malmaison Conservatoire, Paris - he continued his education at the Royal College of Music and graduated in 2009 with distinction. Nicolas is the Principal Horn of Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra as well as Principal of Aurora Orchestra, in addition to being The Emerging Artist with London Sinfonietta, and has appeared as a guest principal horn with orchestra such as the LSO and the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
My favourite concert with Aurora would have to be Beethoven's 'Pastoral' symphony from memory in the BBC Proms in 2015. The music-making, the tension, and the camaraderie between the musicians was so amazing. Definitely one of the best concerts I have been involved in so far.
