James Tavares is a young and exciting chamber and orchestral musician. Originally from Scotland, James has performed all over Europe as a member of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra; he has performed in iconic venues such as the Musikverein in Vienna and La Scala in Milan. James is currently on trial for Principal Tuba at the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

Outside the orchestra, James has a passion for chamber music and can often be heard performing with his Brass Quintet, London Central Brass. As a member of this group, he recently won the Philip Jones International Brass Ensemble Competition 2023 as well as the Musicians Company Brass Ensemble Prize 2023. James is generously supported by The Musicians Company, Countess of Munster Trust and Help Musicians UK as he continues his studies at the Royal Academy of Music as a Masters Student.
