Rosie Savage

Rosie regularly performs in the Melbourne freelance scene which includes casual work with Orchestra Victoria and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra as well as other various Melbourne ensembles, opera companies, professional productions of musicals such as Les Miserables, Mary Poppins and Love Never Dies. While she gets a buzz playing big orchestral repertoire, Rosie has a passion for chamber music and also enjoys exploring the world of jazz. Rosie regards music education highly and is regularly involved in education concerts and workshops via Orchestra Victoria and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra as well as tutoring for Melbourne Youth Orchestra and other MYO ensembles. She currently teaches horn at Eltham High School, The Knox School and Caulfield Grammar. She has been a member of Shrewd Brass since 2006 and this is where she discovered a love for combining music performance with education.

In 2009 Rosie wrote and performed her first original composition for voice, horn and piano and was later engaged to perform the same piece for a memorial at Deakin Edge. Shortly after that Rosie was commissioned to compose and perform a piece for solo horn for the VCA’s Wilin Centre. She also enjoys arranging music for small chamber groups. Outside of music Rosie has a love for food and writing poetry.
