ABOUT ME

Cassandra graduated from the Royal College of Music in 2014 with a 1st Class Honours Bachelor of Music. She studied primarily with Gary Ryan, but also received coaching from Chris Stell and extra lessons with Craig Ogden and Jakob Lindberg on the lute.

During her time at the RCM, she took part in masterclasses with John Williams, Stefan Lӧfvenius, Carlos Bonell, Jason Vieaux, and Julian Byzantine as well as performing at Queen Elisabeth Hall and the Purcell Room as part of “The Rest Is Noise” Festival 2013. She premiered new guitar works at the National Portrait Gallery and the Martin Harris Centre. She was the winner of the Lennox Berkeley Guitar Prize 2012 and was the given a Highly Commended Award for the annual Royal College of Music Guitar Competition in both 2014 and 2012. Cassandra was also selected to represent the RCM at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Stuttgart in an Erasmus exchange programme in 2012. She also reached the final of the Croydon Concerto Competition 2011 with a performance of the Malcolm Arnold Guitar Concerto.

Cassandra is also a highly accomplished chamber musician, taking part in many varied ensembles ranging from working with American violin virtuoso Sean Riley, to playing within the Zapala Quartet with other RCM students. As a result of her keen interest in this musical field, she has enjoyed playing at the Wigmore Hall, V&A Museum and at the London Film Museum with Sean Riley performing a selection of post-romantic music and arrangements of electronic music. She also played as part of the London Guitar Festival 2011 at King's Place with the Zapala Quartet. She also worked with violinist Fiona Robertson in premiering 'The Selfsame Bird' by RCM composer Algirdas Kraunaitis, as well as premiering 'Semantron' by award-winning composer Nicholas Moroz. Her interest in contemporary music led her to be involved in the UK premiere of 'Kleine Elegien' by Hans Werner Henze in 2014 on the lute. Cassandra also performed as a member of the RCM Symphony Orchestra under Bernard Haitink in Gustav Mahler's Symphony No.7.
