Floriane Peycelon – Violin

Floriane began playing the violin at the age of six when she joined the junior branch of the Lyon National Conservatoire of Music and Drama. For the most part of her time there, she was taught by the then Leader of the Lyon National Orchestra and Head of Strings at the Conservatoire: Jean Bisciglia.

After graduating at the Conservatoire in 1990, Flo studied politics at University whilst playing first violin in the Lyon Sinfonietta. Since settling in England, she is sharing her time between teaching and playing. Amongst other things, she teaches the bursary violin students at the University of Kent and plays in a number of ad hoc orchestras in the area.

Flo has been leading the Folkestone & Hythe orchestra since January 2000 and has given outstanding performances of both the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in July 2004 and the Beethoven Violin Concerto in March 2011.
