Siobhan Grealy Flute
Freelance session flautist
Siobhan Grealy began her studies at The Royal College of Music & went on to postgraduate studies at The Royal Academy of Music where she studied with William Bennett & then in France with Charles Dagnino.
As a young artist Siobhan won numerous prizes, awards & competitions which launched her career as a Chamber Musician & Soloist appearing throughout the UK & Europe in concert halls, on television & on radio.
Orchestral success also followed & Siobhan became established as the foremost freelance player in London before eventually accepting a position with The London Symphony Orchestra as their 2nd Flute.
As a member of The LSO Siobhan toured the world, recorded extensively both live in concert & commercially for film soundtracks such as Harry Potter. She also appeared as a chamber musician, an adjudicator, worked as part of the LSO’s award winning education team & gave masterclasses & workshops at the music colleges in London.
Siobhan’s experience as a freelance orchestral musician and then as a member of The LSO has, unusually, seen her in demand as both a principal player as well as a section player & principal piccolo.
Guest principal appearances include The London Symphony Orchestra, The London Philharmonic Orchestra, The Philharmonia, The BBC Symphony Orchestra, The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, The English Chamber Orchestra, The City of London Sinfonia, The Royal Northern Sinfonia, The BBC National Orchestra of Wales & The Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
Siobhan left The LSO in 2013 & moved to Scotland which has lengthened her commute to London only slightly as the flights are somewhat faster than South West trains! She is still in demand with her London colleagues & also now appears regularly in the commercial recording studios recording sound tracks such as 'How to Train your Dragon 2'.
