With a commitment to chamber music, Anna Rosa works closely with harpist Eira Lynn Jones as joint founder of The Juniper Project. The ensemble has a busy performing schedule, often enriched by collaborations with other instruments and educational work. The Juniper Project recently released their debut CD album Fragments under Divine Art Records. It has been reviewed as 'superb playing', 'gorgeous', and 'ravishing sound'', and it has been featured in the Top 50 playlist of Apple Music 'Classical AM'.
Anna Rosa is known for her inspiring teaching, for which she displays infinite passion and dedication. She teaches flute at Salford University and has worked closely with the Education Programme of the Hallé Orchestra for many years.
