Charlotte Castle was born in the New Forest, and began playing the flute aged eight. Charlotte graduated with a Bachelor of Music Honours Degree (2:1) from the Royal Northern College of Music in July 2010, where she studied under the tutelage of Richard Davis, Linda Verrier and Joanne Boddington. Since graduating, Charlotte has been working for the Southbank Sinfonia in London.
Charlotte has had the privilege of playing in Masterclasses for eminent performers such as William Bennett, Michael Cox, Paul Edmund-Davies and Peter Lloyd. Her orchestral playing has allowed her to perform with ensembles including the South Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra, The Innovaris Orchestra, the RNCM Chamber, Symphony, Opera, Concert and Wind Orchestras, as well as freelance work with the Coups De Vents Grand Orchestre D'Harmonie in France (with a particular specialism on the piccolo).
Her involvement in the Orchestral ensembles at the RNCM led her to be selected for a residency at the Cantiere Internazionale D'Arte di Montepulciano, Italy. In addition to concert performances, she has also participated in Commercial Recordings; in June 2009 she worked with Jazz Vocalist Ann Ducros on her album Ella My Dear, and has recorded as part of the RNCM Wind Orchestra on two occasions, featuring works by composers such as Stephen McNeff and Adam Gorb.
