Originally a graduate with honours from the Royal College of Music in London, Lynda spent her working life marketing software products for vertical market industries. But life came full circle when she decided to take early retirement and return to music making. In addition to having been accompanist to EMVC since 2010/11, Lynda collaborates and performs with instrumentalists, singers and thespians. She is on the listening panel for Making Music and writes reviews and programme notes for local concerts. She loves the live streaming of operas, ballets and plays into local cinemas and feels lucky to benefit from such technological advances.
