Joaquin Velasco

Rafael Velasco


Born into a classical music-oriented clan, Joaquin began violin studies at the age of five; Rafael began piano at the same age, moving to cello  two years later. Joaquin studied with Wendy Heiligenberg from 2014, then on her suggestion, began lessons with Keith Crellin in 2018. Rafael was accepted as student by Ruth Saffir in 2014. 

Both are music scholarship recipients, Joaquin from Pulteney Grammar School and Rafael from Concordia College (Year 8 entrant 2021). They are both members of the Adelaide Youth Orchestra, playing first violin and cello for one of the AdYO String Quartets. Both regularly compete and have won prizes at the Adelaide Eisteddfod in which Joaquin recently received the Malcolm Rowe violin prize.
