BIOGRAPHY

Jocelyn Freeman is a Welsh pianist, conductor and adjudicator based in London. She began her performing career as chorister in St David’s Cathedral Choir, released her debut solo piano album Night and Novelties in 2013 with Kissan Records, and now performs internationally as collaborative and solo pianist, and conductor.

Her pianism has been described as “”outstanding””, “”brilliant””, “”sparkling”” and “”One to Watch””, including accolades from International Piano Magazine. Engagements have led her to perform on four continents, including television and radio broadcasts in both the UK and Germany on BBC, Sky, S4C, ARD and RTL television. She has performed concerti with the Cardiff Sinfonietta, at the Oxford Proms, Aberystwyth Great Hall, and St David’s Cathedral. Collaborative highlights include performing and recording with Elin Manahan Thomas in a celebration of a centenary composer, Dilys Elwyn Edwards, and song projects with Stuart Jackson and Julien Van Mellaerts. For the last two years, she has adjudicated the London International Internet Music Competition.

Jocelyn studied at the Royal Academy of Music with Pascal Nemirovski and Michael Dussek, graduating with all the accompaniment prizes. She was awarded the Phoebe Benham Fellowship from the Royal College of Music in 2012 and completed her studies at the Samling Academy and with Roger Vignoles and Alexander Fleisher at the Britten Pears Foundation. She was then awarded the Viola Tunnard Young Artist Award at Aldeburgh, recording a Lieder disk and studying with Marcelo Amaral in Nuremberg. Prizes include Gold at the International Marlow Concerto Competition and 2nd Prize at the Internationalen Wettbewerb für Liedkunst in Stuttgart with Stuart Jackson, and she is grateful for the ongoing support of the Carne Trust and McInroy & Wood.
