Toby Hughes is one of the UK’s leading double bass soloists. A true virtuoso, Toby has exceeded the perceived limitations of his instrument by being the first double bassist to win the Bromsgrove International Music Competition, the ROSL string section final, and the Tunbridge Wells International Young Concert Artists competition.

He has performed at the Wigmore Hall, Edinburgh International Festival, Queen Elizabeth Hall, and St Martin the Fields, and he regularly plays with the renowned 12 Ensemble. This year he looks forward to further recitals at St Martin in the Fields, Wiltshire Music Centre, and a concerto with Chandos Symphony Orchestra.
