About Flora

Flora is a cellist based in Birmingham and London, currently studying on a scholarship at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

Flora was born in London and started learning the cello at the age of eight, and has since received invaluable musical training during her studies at the Royal Academy of Music junior department (2011-2016) where she learnt with Alexandra Mackenzie. Flora is currently in her third year studying with Matthew Sharp at Undergraduate level at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. This year she has earnt a place on both the CBSO and Birmingham Royal Ballet side-by-side schemes and has thus far played Vaughan Williams 4th Symphony under conductor Christian Macelaru with the CBSO and Glad Buhr's Beauty and the Beast ballet under conductor Paul Murphy with BRB. In her orchestral career, most recently Flora has played with the Manchester Concert Orchestra under conductor Lee Reynolds. Throughout her time studying the cello at RAM and RBC, Flora has benefitted from invaluable chamber music coaching from many established musicians such as Jian Wang and ensembles including the Castallian, Heath, Lindsay, and Kus Quartets, and the Schubert Ensemble. Flora is a founding member of the Brook Piano Trio, who this year welcomes the addition of clarinettist Kaethe Uken to perform Messiaen's masterpiece 'Quartet for The End of Time' in March 2020.
