Charlotte studied at the Royal College of Music, London with Mark-Anthony Turnage (composition) and Martin Robertson (saxophone) and on graduating was awarded the prestigious Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Rosebowl.
Her works include the Ivors Composer Award-winning ‘Convo’ for massed ensemble (Royal Albert Hall) and the Ivors Composer Award-nominated ‘Them’ for contemporary dance company Balletboyz (Sadler’s Wells/Edinburgh Festival/Vaudeville Theatre, West End).
Drawing on an eclectic mix of classical and cross-genre influences, her work fuses bold rhythmic statements with evocative melodic lines and vivid textures. Her diverse career has seen her work performed in concert halls (Queen Elizabeth Hall, Kings Place, Cadogan Hall, St John’s Smith Square, St Martin-in-the-Fields), new music club nights (Nonclassical), galleries (National Portrait Gallery, Science Gallery London) and music festivals (WOMAD, Simple Things).
As an orchestrator and arranger, Charlotte has frequently worked with the innovative electro-classical Paraorchestra. Projects have included collaborating with Suede’s Brett Anderson for ‘Death Songbook’ (Gŵyl 2021/BBC), reimagining the songs of Barry White (Park Stage, Glastonbury Festival 2019), and creating realisations of works by electronic pioneer Pauline Oliveros for the concert ‘Minimalism Changed My Life: Tones, Drones, and Arpeggios’ (Queen Elizabeth Hall, London/Bridgewater Hall, Manchester).
As a saxophonist, Charlotte co-founded ‘Over 100 Years of Women and the Saxophone’ with Amy Green which launched at the World Saxophone Congress, SaxOpen, in Strasbourg in 2015 and made its debut in the US in collaboration with Pennsylvania State University in early 2020. She also featured on Keaton Henson’s latest album ‘Monument’ (PIAS).
