Rosie Bowker began playing the flute aged 9, and had an enviable training at Wells Cathedral School (whose ‘Virtuosi’ ensemble delighted and amazed us at our very first NGA concert in March last year.) She graduated from the National Children’s Orchestra to the National Youth Orchestra where she became principal flute, playing at the BBC Proms.

She went to Cambridge and was appointed Principal Flute in the University Chamber orchestra and the Alba Orchestra, and won one of the University’s prestigious Instrumental Award Scholarships. Even as an undergraduate she was invited to play with the Britten Sinfonia.

She is now on the Guildhall School of Music’s Master’s course in ‘Orchestral Artistry’, and adding to her range of skills studying baroque flute with one of the world’s leading experts, Lisa Beznosiuk.

She is playing now with several professional orchestras, under Bernard Haitink, Yan Pascal Tortelier and others, and expanding her experience of chamber music in a range of young professional ensembles – wind quintet, sextet, and trio.
