Harry was the only clarinettist to be offered a place on the London Symphony Orchestra's Woodwind Academy in both 2007 and 2011, whereby he intensively trained, worked and performed with the orchestra's principal players on chamber and orchestral repertoire.

As a chamber musician Harry has a variety of projects. In 2007 he formed the Mercury Quartet with Vlad Maistorovici (violin), Corentin Chassard (cello) and Antoine Francoise (piano) to perform Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time and are now receiving critical acclaim:

They hold a position at the Bucharest conservatoire and have also run composition workshops with Julian Anderson and George Benjamin.

As a soloist Harry has performed concertos all over the UK with a vast array of orchestras and ensembles. Whilst at the RCM he gave a concerto performance with the wind ensemble of a work by Finnish composer Lauri Supponen. He also regularly gives recitals in music festivals, clubs, societies and schools with his regular duo partner Jon Musgrave. Much of his solo work is for the Park Lane Group with whom he is an artist for the 2012-2013 season.

Harry's projects this season are to include appearances with Nigel Kennedy, Linda Hirst, the Benyounes Quartet, members of the Lakeside trio and cellist Pau Codina.
