Flautist Lily Vernon-Purves completed her undergraduate studies at the RNCM with renowned flautist Kevin Gowland, and is now studying a Masters degree at the RNCM under world-class flautist and teacher Susan Milan. As an experienced orchestral and chamber music player, Lily has performed all throughout Europe, most recently touring with the RNCM Symphony Orchestra in Montepulciano, Italy.
