Born in Darlington, Hayley Jenkins began her musical career as a flautist playing in the district wind band and later learnt clarinet and saxophone. Hayley studied music at York St John University at undergraduate level, MA Music Composition and soon to be starting post doctoral study in this area. Hayley is a Lecturer of Music and Education at the University of Sunderland.
In addition to her work at Sunderland, Hayley is a freelance contemporary composer and conductor. As a composer, her work has featured in the Late Music concert series, performed by a range of performers such as Payee Chen (soprano) and Kate Ledger (piano), the Delta Saxophone Quartet, Soon Amore, Albany Trio and Berkley Ensemble. New projects include a commission for Soon Amore, a York-based community choir and working with Streetwise Opera as a composer in residence. Hayley's work explores narrative forms and draws influence from nature, art, literature and different cultures but most notably words and experiences which draw upon every day life.
