Based In: Kent, South East
I work both as a soloist and with various ensembles/bands. Depending on requirements we are likely to be able to find you the idea option for your requirements.
Nicky Catterwell has a growing reputation across Kent and the UK as a flautist of the highest calibre. She studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama under Jonathan Burgess, Principal Flute of Orchestra of Welsh National Opera, was a finalist in the prestigious “Russell Shephard Instrumentalist Competition” in 2009 and completed her Masters Degree in 2010.
She has appeared as a soloist for the Canterbury Orchestra and as an ensemble performer with Ashover Festival Orchestra, Cardiff Camerata Orchestra and Maidstone Wind Symphony.
Nicky is a diverse musician performing in a wid ... e variety of ensembles, including the competition winning band, Brides of Rain, the wind quartet Suite Serenade and the Perdido Big Band as well as working with pit orchestras for various musicals. She will also soon be embarking on a solo projects, drawing on influences from world music, using contemporary techniques to mimic “ethnic” instruments, as well as the more traditional repertoire. Next year she will also be working with clarinettist Jennifer Cochrane and soprano Helen Wilson for a “pastoral” themed evening.
Along with performing, Nicky teaches extensively on flute, saxophone, clarinet and more recently cornet and trumpet and provides musical education to young children through her Musical Bumps classes which are influenced by the ideas and theories of the Hungarian educationalist Zoltán Kodály.
