Felicity is a freelance flautist, who last year graduated as a Master of Music from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. Now based in London, she is establishing a freelance career in performing and teaching. 

Having begun playing the flute at the age of 7, Felicity went on to gain an ABRSM Diploma whilst still at school. She then studied Music at the University of Bristol and graduated with a 1st Class BA(Hons) in 2015. 

Whilst at Bristol, she was appointed Principal Flautist of the Bristol University Symphony Orchestra and of the Bristol Operatic Society. She also gained solo experience, giving performances at the renowned St. Georges's Concert Hall and Bristol Music Club. 

At the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama Felicity studied the flute with Matthew Featherstone (BBC NOW), Jonathan Burgess (WNO) and Sarah Newbold; and piccolo with Andrew Lane (CBSO). She gave performances in St David's Hall and the Dora Stoutzker Hall, and founded the Ibert Quintet with whom she played at venues such as Insole Court. 

Whilst Felicity enjoys playing in many different styles, her specialism lies in contemporary music. She has collaborated with composers for over six years and has premiered countless works. She premiered a new work, 'Myisi', in London's Tete a tete new opera festival in July 2015, and in 2017 founded her own arts venture, Contemporary Cardiff, with whom she commissioned over 12 new works for a concert series taking place in January-March 2018, in public venues around Cardiff. 

Felicity is passionate about her role as a music educator, which has so far included working at specialist music school, Wells Cathedral School, and as a flute teacher in both Bristol and Cardiff.
