Rohan Zakharia
One of our Rising Stars for this year’s performance is the bright, young classical percussionist Rohan Zakharia. Rohan, at 18 years of age is Australia’s first Percussionist to be accepted into the New England Conservatory, Boston, USA, studying among a group of the world’s most talented young percussionists.
Rohan is a graduate of Hale School, where he studied percussion with Joel Bass and Brian Maloney, the Principal Percussionist of WASO. Out of Rohan’s extensive performance opportunities during and post high school, he was most recently the Principal Percussionist in the Australian Youth Orchestra’s Young Symphonists’ Program, Australia’s leading institution for emerging musicians.
Rohan is looking forward to moving to Boston, USA, where he will be afforded the calibre of training that will allow him to achieve his career goals of becoming an Australian performing artist, bringing a new level of experience and expertise to the Australian music scene.
Devon Lake
Our second Rising Star for this year's performance is the brilliant Devon Lake, a 17 year old with a baritone voice that belies his years.
