When he turned twelve, he had his début as a soloist with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, and was again featured as the soloist with the VSO the following year. When he was fourteen, he was a finalist at the Morningside Music Bridge International Concerto Competition and appeared as a soloist with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. In addition, Tate has performed with the Vancouver Philharmonic, Vancouver Youth Symphony, Vancouver Academy of Music Symphony, New Westminster Symphony, and Richmond Symphony Orchestras. He has performed in masterclasses for many world-class cellists such as Aldo Parisot, Lynn Harrell, Daniel Müller-Schott, Peter Wiley, and Johannes Moser. This past summer, Tate worked with Colin Carr at the Academie de Villcroze in France. After France, he took part in the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, winning an Award of Excellence. Tate has studied with John Kadz and Johanne Perron at the Mount Royal University Conservatory as well as with Ariel Barnes at the VSO School of Music.
