About

I am a recent graduate from the University of York with a BA(hons) in music, and specialised in percussion throughout my degree. I take particular pleasure in performing contemporary works and working with the composers. I have recently moved to Lincoln and am available to work in the area.  In York I regularly played with local orchestras and groups, including York Musical Society, and most recently the orchestra for the 2016 York Mystery Plays in York Minster.

I specialise in tuned percussion, mainly marimba and vibraphone, but for orchestral works am a competent xylophone player. I’ve also worked extensively on pieces that comprise only non tuned percussion.

Reviews:

“highlight being the percussion performance which was well organised with Zoë Craven in charge of the large array of instruments and sticks not to mention tissue paper. It was a virtuoso performance”

“played with subdued panache by Zoë Craven”

“Craven’s precision in her playing is also worth noting, giving a true security to the sound and fulfilling the aim of the phrases”
