Jenny Robinson has played the recorder from childhood, beginning with her father Joseph Groocock. She studied flute at the Royal Irish Academy of Music with Doris Keogh and Patricia Dunkerly, winning the Open Wind Prize at the Feis Ceoil and gaining orchestral expererience as an occasional deputy with the RTE (National) Symphony Orchestra while still in her teens. Since then she has taught generations of flute and recorder players in Dublin (both at the RIAM and the DIT Conservatory), and was a tutor on the first Anglo-Irish Recorder Course under Theo Wyatt in 1971. She was the leading player in the Consort of St. Sepulchre which played all over Ireland and recorded two CDs for EMI in the 70s. Brian Boydell wrote the solo tenor recorder part for her (in his Masai Mara Suite), and she has played this many times with the National Symphony Orchestra. She has played concertos with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, the Irish Baroque Orchestra and the Dublin Orchestral Players. She has also toured with baroque chamber music ensembles, frequently playing with the Dublin Viols.
