About Rosanna Ter-Berg

An exceptionally versatile and theatrical performer, Rosanna is in demand as a multi-flautist, improviser, actor-musician and creative collaborator in Europe and beyond. Described as ‘outstanding’ by the Telegraph and ‘super-charged’ by the Guardian, Rosanna’s performances exude class, personality and virtuosity. She is known for her charismatic presence, on-stage vitality and flair.

Forever resisting the urge to fit neatly in to a box, Rosanna enjoys performing many different styles of music – classical, contemporary, avant-guard experimental, pop, rock, Eastern European, Latin and folk which has led her to work on many different projects across the globe. Rosanna plays with some of the UK’s most renowned improvisers, chamber groups, contemporary music ensembles, orchestras and theatre companies. She is also on the artistic and audition panel for the contemporary platform The Park Lane Group.

Rosanna’s versatility has led her to work as a soloist and ensemble musician with numerous artists, orchestras and collectives such as the contemporary classical/jazz ensemble Engines Orchestra, Aurora Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, City of London Sinfonia, Multi-Story Orchestra, Disney’s The Lion King Tour and touring rock band Legend of a Band. She is a founding member of the improviser’s collective Union Division and newly formed Brazilian band Olayá. She has performed as a soloist live on radio, at many festivals and at the UK’s most prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall, The Southbank Centre, Wigmore Hall, the Bridgewater Hall and at over 50 music clubs.

Rosanna has a passion for the stage. She was the alternate musical director on the 3 X Olivier Award winning production Emilia in London’s West-End. She has devised a number of shows for young audiences with London Rhymes and MishMash Productions, and presented classical shows for Aurora Orchestra as part of the Southbank Imagine Festival. She performs with the immersive Opera show Vixen (Silent Opera/ENO) with whom she’s toured internationally after rave reviews and with the Royal Opera House’s immersive productions touring across the UK. In Germany, she works with The Other Music Academy as a performer, composer and musical director. There, she has worked on projects including an immersive puppet show, a cabaret show and a large scale social-cultural project composing for podcasts, radio plays, a documentary and clay animation. As a session musician, she has recorded for artists as diverse as Danalogue, Tom Rosenthal, Ana Silvera and Katie Melua as well as for TV and film. She is the demo-flautist and recording artist for the Global music exam board ABRSM, having recorded the syllabus CDs and downloads for the last ten years.

As an educator, Rosanna delivers music workshops across the country for organisations including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The BBC Proms, Bath Philharmonic Orchestra and Creative Futures. She trained as an animateur and workshop leader with Spitalfields Music, Opera North and the LSO. She is a music mentor for Live Music Now, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and City of London Sinfonia – working with classical musicians on performance and improvisation skills, going beyond the training at music conservatoires.  

Rosanna studied at Leeds University, Strasbourg Conservatoire and Trinity Laban where she graduated with Distinction in her MMus and the highest performance mark in her faculty. She was a finalist in Trinity’s Isabelle Bond Gold Medal Competition and went on to win over ten national competitions whilst studying. Soon after, she was quickly snapped up as an artist for the Park Lane Group, Live Music Now, Making Music AYCA, Countess of Munster and the Concordia Foundation.
