Jessica Ward


I began working for the University of Leeds International Concert Series in 2012 after graduating from the University of Leeds with an undergraduate degree in Music and Maths and a Masters in Composition. My current role of Concerts Coordinator includes concert programming, artist liaison, event management and Series development. I also oversee the programming and planning of the School of Music performance masterclass series. 

Alongside working for the University of Leeds, I enjoy a varied part-time freelance career as a music educator, teaching piano, leading choirs and youth musical theatre projects, and providing piano accompaniment for a range of concerts, productions, and instrumental and vocal exams.
