2007 Awardee: Sadah Webster

Thank you for your generosity.


Born in Brisbane of British parents, Sadah came back to Glasgow to pursue a Masters in oboe performance at the RSAMD.

Sadah is considered to be a very talented musician and oboist. He is constantly in demand as a freelance oboist with professional orchestras in Scotland and has worked as a musician for some of the major London musicals. He has worked with the RSNO, the Scottish Concert Orchestra, the Hebrides Ensemble, Scottish Opera and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, as well as with orchestras as far afield as Australia, Hungary and Portugal.

Sadah is part of the wind quintet Amici Winds and is getting together a new chamber music ensemble based in Glasgow which will focus on playing new music and to finding a new audience in younger generations.

Sadah is an exciting and talented oboist in increasing demand as both a soloist and orchestral player. Although able to play the cor anglais (tenor oboe), Sadah did not own his own instrument.

How the Award Helped

The Dewar Arts Award will enable Sadah to buy a professional cor anglais.

Since the Award

Since receiving a new cor anglais, Sadah has worked with a number of top European orchestras, including the BBC Philharmonic at the London Proms. He is currently auditioning for the London Symphony Orchestra.

Thank you for your generosity.
