Francesca Rochester

Percussion Soloist

Francesca Rochester was born and educated in York. She is not only principal timpanist for York Guildhall Orchestra but is also a founder-member.

Francesca has been a member of York Railway Institute Band for more years than she cares to remember. She also plays regularly with York Opera and York Symphony Orchestra.

Having been a member of the Academy of St. Olave’s for many years, this short piece is Francesca’s first venture as soloist. When the rest of the orchestra find out how much room she takes up, it may be her last!
