He was regularly a top prize winner as a soloist and chamber musician at the Slovenian National competition.

Boris performs as a soloist and chamber musician in Slovenia, Great Britain, the United States, Japan, China, France, Switzerland, Norway, Spain, Cyprus and Malta. He has performed concertos with the Slovenian Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra on a number of occasions; in 2015 he performed Mozart's Concerto for Flute and Harp, in 2017 the CPE Bach flute concerto under the baton of Dmitri Sitkovetsky, in 2018 the Brandenburg Concerto and the triple concerto for flute, violin and harpsichord in a minor by J.S.Bach. He has also performed as a soloist with the City of London Ensemble, Euphonia Symphony Orchestra, Solisti Divini, London Brandenburg Soloists and SNG Maribor.

Past performances by Marcelle Zahra include a BBC broadcast of newly discovered folk song arrangements by Beethoven (Edinburgh) and solo performances at the Queens Hall (Edinburgh), Teatro Luigi Mercantini (Italy), Central Washington University Recital Hall (Seattle), Fitzwilliam Museum (Cambridge), Blackheath Halls (London) Haydn Festival Trinity Laban (London) and Malta Arts Festival (Valletta). Zahra graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London in 2009 with a Master of Music Degree, studying with Philip Fowke and Alexander Ardakov.
