Welcoming Jessica Coleman to our violin section

We are delighted to welcome Scottish violinist Jessica Coleman as second violin in our orchestra.

Jessica is a sought-after chamber and orchestral musician based in London. She began learning the violin aged four and went on to study at Chetham’s School of Music and the Royal College of Music with Jan Repko, Detlef Hahn and Gaby Lester. During her time at the RCM, Jessica formed a successful string quartet with which she performed at such venues as Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, and the Royal Albert Hall. Jessica remains passionate about chamber music and enjoys pairing her orchestral work with exciting ensemble-based projects.

In 2017, Jessica was a member of Southbank Sinfonia, and has since built up a successful freelance career working with many of the top chamber and symphony orchestras across the country.

Jessica believes in making music widely accessible and has been particularly inspired by our strong community presence. She has loved working with us over the past year and is delighted to be joining as a permanent member.
