I am a flute player and singer-songwriter from the Czech Republic. I perform classical music and my song compositions inspired by folk and jazz around London and my hometown Prague. I am also a keen music teacher.
I have recently performed in the final round of the Needlemakers Prize at the Guildhall School in London, only a few days after participating in a music workshop in a refugee camp in Grande Synthe, France. I have been a guest player with Chamber Philharmonic Pardubice and Talich Chamber Orchestra, as well as the contemporary ensemble Berg, all based in the Czech Republic. I have played with conductors like Diego Matheuz, Pietari Inkinen and Yan Pascal Tortelier, performing in the Barbican Hall in London, the Rudolphinum Dvořák’s Hall in Prague, as well as a number of clubs and cafés.
As a singer, I have recently collaborated with pianist Jamie Faulkner, guitarist Joe Smith Sands, the Prague-based Jazzmazec band, and cabaret ensemble Přímá Oklika. In summer 2016 I performed at the United Islands of Prague Festival, and jammed alongside singer Tonya Graves at the Jazz Festival in Černošice.
I graduated from the Prague Conservatoire with a specialist diploma in flute, and am currently studying flute and singing at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. My studies are kindly supported by the Czech Music Fund and the Foundation Život umělce.
