Jennifer Sturt enjoys a variety of ensemble playing and applying her musicianship to as many different styles as possible: from performing Bach Cantatas to collaborating on new compositions by her peers. At Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance she obtained a first-class Bachelor of Music with honours, whilst focusing on diverse repertoire with her teacher Naomi Butterworth. Upon graduating in 2019 was awarded the silver medal for outstanding contribution to the strings department. Sturt is currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music for a Masters of Music, and is taught by Benjamin Hughes. Here, she is continuing her search for ‘off-canon’ repertoire and composer collaboration.
Jennifer Sturt was born in East Sussex to a very musical family. She has been playing the cello since 2001 and regularly participates in the local music scene there.
