Glenorchy Church Exmouth

Annabel Rooney took up the cello when she was nine, and went on to study with Florence Hooton, Derek Simpson, and, more recently, Michael Evans. A member of the National Youth Orchestra as a teenager, Annabel subsequently read music at Christs College, Cambridge, where she held a university instrumental award on the cello. Continuing in Cambridge or postgraduate study, Annabel worked on early eighteenth-century Italian opera for her MPhil and PhD.

Annabel and her family moved to Devon in 2006. She has three children at primary school, and tries to combine motherhood and music! Annabel plays in various ensembles locally for concerts and weddings, teaches, and also composes (predominantly sacred choral music).
