Jenny began her career in Newcastle, where she enjoyed a varied playing career at
the Sage Gateshead, accompanying the Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia and Quay Voices
as well as supporting Streetwise Opera sessions for people who had experienced
homelessness. Jenny also played and coached regularly for students of Newcastle,
Northumbria and Sunderland Universities, and established performing partnerships with Iona
Brown (Principal of Royal Northern Sinfonia) and the singer Graeme Danby, among others.
After moving to Leeds in 2015, Jenny took up a full time post as a repetiteur for Opera North
Education, and enjoyed three years of working with the company's Youth Chorus and
Children’s Chorus, ‘In Harmony’ and a host of other outreach projects as well as frequently
performing with the Chorus and Orchestra of Opera North.
Since leaving this role in September, Jenny has enjoyed returning to Opera North for projects
such as ‘Intro to Opera’ and with director Laura Attridge she has developed and co-led
workshops to help children explore The Magic Flute. Jenny has worked with Hallé
ensembles, playing regularly with Stuart Overington and the Hallé Youth Choir, Hallé
Training Choir, and Shirley Court and Hallé Children's Choir. At the RNCM Jenny supports
the Chamber Choir and Symphony Chorus in their rehearsals and performances, and
accompanies lessons in the vocal school; she teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate
students at Leeds University.
