Finance & Administration Co-ordinator

Email: rachel@bcmg.org.uk

Rachel is BCMG’s Finance and Administration Co-ordinator, having taking up the position in August 2014, following a year studying a postgraduate certificate in Composition at Birmingham Conservatoire.

She graduated with a joint honours degree in Maths and Music at the University of Birmingham in 2010, specialising in Composition, where she first became introduced to the world of BCMG through the student composer workshops. Whilst studying at the University, Rachel played flute and alto-flute for the University’s New Music Ensemble.

With her split interests between composition and finance, she is right at home in her role with Birmingham Contemporary Music Group. Rachel also works for Ex Cathedra, a Birmingham based choir, and is studying bookkeeping in support of both roles.

In her spare time, Rachel is looking forward to moving into a new flat, where she will focus on developing her own compositional ideas, and as composer-performer for amplified flute and electronics.
