With a focus on creativity and imagination, Rosalind Ridout is an adventurous and versatile flute player. Much of Rosalind’s work is informed by movement, space, and music’s relationship to the body, opening up research avenues exploring Dalcroze Eurhythmics. Rosalind is able to apply her performance-based research in her role as Director of Music at the Jack & Jill Family of Schools in Hampton.
Rosalind’s performance interests lie primarily in the baroque and contemporary repertories, and experimental, cross-discipline theatre. A founding member of SHOAL, she is also a founding member of Endelienta Baroque.
She has played in workshops with ensembles such as the Academy of Ancient Music and the Britten Sinfonia, and has worked with numerous composers, including Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Thea Musgrave and and Eyvind Gulbrandsen, and has performed alongside musicians such as Psappa and Markus Stockhausen.
A music graduate of the University of Cambridge, Rosalind previously spent a year studying at the Guildhall School of Music, and went on to complete her Masters' at the Royal Northern College of Music as an ABRSM scholar, graduating with distinction.
