About Lynn

French Horn
Cardiff
Lynn is a young but experienced horn player, currently studying with Tim Thorpe and Anneke Scott at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

From Cornwall originally, Lynn spent two years on the specialist music scheme at Wells Cathedral School before coming to the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2015. She has enjoyed playing with both county and regional youth orchestras for many years, as well as dabbling in contemporary music with South West Music School. Lynn has also played with Hartland Chamber Orchestra for 5 years, frequently as a concerto soloist. This led on to other solo opportunities, such as playing Strauss’s first concerto with the North Devon Sinfonia and more recently a performance of Schumann’s Konzertstück with Exeter University Symphony Orchestra. Currently in third year at RWCMD, Lynn studies with Tim Thorpe, Jim Mildred and Anneke Scott, on Natural Horn. Chamber music makes up a large part of Lynn’s playing experience, as a member of many of the premiere ensembles at the college, including brass quintets, wind quintets, horn quartets and piano trios. In the summer of 2016, Lynn spent several weeks on tour with the Palestine Youth Orchestra, both getting the chance to play at prestigious UK venues, like the Royal Festival Hall and Leeds Town Hall, and exploring the political and social issues faced by Palestinian musicians. More recently, Lynn has been invited to play with the Young Musicians’ Symphony Orchestra, the leading ensemble for musicians on the brink of their professional careers. As well as this she played 3rd horn as the St Endellion Easter Festival. Summer 2017 included a place in the London Sinfonietta Academy, an unparalleled opportunity for young contemporary performers, and playing second horn in the Essex Baroque Orchestra at the Suffolk Villages Festival. In her free time, Lynn enjoys surfing, baking and pub quizzes.
