He has recently graduated with Distinction from the Royal College of Music, London, as a HR Taylor Charitable Trust Scholar. In 2022, Isaac received the Countess of Munster Trust Neil Black Award – the first clarinettist to ever receive it.

He enjoys a varied musical career freelancing with the UK’s top orchestras, teaching and playing chamber music with his group, Ormonde Ensemble.

The MMSF Instrumental Fellowship Programme is supported by The Sidney Perry Foundation.


For the past few years, the Foundling Museum has partnered with the Philharmonia Orchestra to provide monthly recital opportunities for their MMSF Instrumental Fellows. The scheme has been developed to equip musicians at the start of their careers with real-world performance experience, whilst inviting them to engage with our history and collections through their programming.

The Philharmonia MMSF Instrumental Fellowship Programme (formerly the Martin Musical Scholarship Fund) has supported young musicians since 1968. Over the years, the programme has helped to prepare exceptionally talented instrumental students for a professional orchestral career. From mentoring with a member of the Philharmonia Orchestra to recital opportunities and training workshops, the Fellowship is an extensive programme that aims to develop emerging artists in a supportive and nurturing environment.
