Rachel studied music at York University where she led the Symphony, Chamber and Beethoven Orchestras. ‘Spare’ time in holidays gave her the opportunity to play with the Britten Peers Orchestra and Jersey Symphony Orchestra. Rachel’s career has seen her perform on the major stages in the UK and Europe with orchestras, chamber ensembles, folk ensembles and even a 9 piece Balkan band, Szapora. Based in the border lands between South Wales and England, Rachel now works as a mother of two young and very energetic boys! When allowed a day off she still performs as a freelance violinist and session musician.
