Callum Armstrong graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2014, where he won the Beryl Maggs Prize for recorder-playing 3 years in a row, as well as winning the Silver Medal for Early Music. Callum started experimenting with the aulos in 2015. His work developing reeds in an historically informed manner while collaborating with scholars such as Stefan Hagel, Armand D’Angour, and Robin Howell has enabled him to forge his own playing technique and to break new ground reviving the aulos. In 2016, he became involved in the Acting Touring Company’s production of Aeschylus’ ‘Suppliant Women’, which received 5-star reviews at Edinburgh's Royal Lyceum Theatre and London's Young Vic. Callum’s other recent projects include developing a polyphonic technique for double and triple smallpipes, collaborating with pipe maker Julian Goodacre to develop a chanter with a 3-octave range, and taking part in ‘Nathaniel Gow’s Dance Band’ with Concerto Caledonia. He has played as a soloist with the London Philharmonic orchestra and appeared as the piper in Steven Speilberg's film Warhorse. In 2014, Callum won the Château d’Ars solo piping competition and returned in 2015 to win the ‘Petite Formation' competition with the cellist George Pasca.
