Rosie Jenkins


Member since 2016, Professor at the Royal College of Music

‘I was lucky enough to grow up in an area with a fantastic music service – my school orchestra and our county orchestra were both great! We went on tours, played Mahler symphonies and I thought it was marvellous! So I decided to practice as hard as I could, listen to as much music as possible and see if I could make a living by playing the oboe.’

Rosie Jenkins grew up in Teesside in the North East, where she studied music through the local education authority. The county youth orchestra was fantastic and made her realise she wanted to be an orchestral musician.

Rosie studied at the Royal Academy of Music and for a postgraduate at the Royal College of Music, both on scholarships. In 2006 she returned to the North East to join the Northern Sinfonia as Second Oboe and Cor Anglais. After four happy years she returned to London, then joining the English National Opera as Co-Principal Oboe. Rosie joined the LSO Oboe section in January 2016.
