Jenny studied with Soloist Maurice Hasson at the Royal Academy of Music and Michelle Auclair at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. She completed her undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, which then followed with a chamber music Fellowship at the Royal Academy in the award winning Pavao Quartet.
She is currently 1st violinist in the Quartet, and their recital schedule has taken her worldwide. She has performed in all of Britain's most prestigious concert venues, London’s Wigmore hall, Purcell room, The Festival Hall, Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall, Gateshead’s Sage, and Glasgow’s Royal Concert hall to name a few. International performances have taken her to the US, Israel, China, Thailand, and a whole host of European cities.
Her recording work with the quartet on works by English Composers Elgar and Bax welcomed quotes of “ an intoxicating warmth and emotional spontaneity” (The Strad magazine), and “an ensemble of real depth and musical distinction” (Classic FM magazine).
Aside from her own quartet, Jenny performs with numerous other chamber groups and is recognised for her wealth of experience in this field. She was invited to judge on the panel of the International Harp Chamber Music Competition in 2015.
Solo performances in the UK include Bruch's Violin Concerto, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E Minor, Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Mozart’s 5th Violin Concerto, The Lark Ascending, Bach's Violin Concerto in A Minor, Saint Saens Fantaisie for Violin and Harp, concertos with the Trafalgar Sinfonia, and most recently with The London Concertante.
Regularly played on Classic FM and Radio 3 with the Pavao's, you will also hear her on other radio and television channels as she has recorded with numerous artists, such as Adele, Cee-Lo Green, Kasabian, Emeli Sande and has performed live with Sir Paul McCartney, Michael Buble, Paul Weller, Josh Groban, Bryan Adams amongst others, which she admits to being "Starstruck" on several occasions!
Jenny's next recording is a disc of French Harp chamber music with her quartet and the phenomenal harpist Catrin Finch due to be released in 2017.
