I am pleased to be able to share that I have been offered places on the British Youth Opera Workshops Programme, the Opera Scenes Course at Oxenfoord International Summer School and Abingdon Summer School for Solo Singers.
Each course will offer intensive coaching, new repertoire, working with teachers whose work I greatly admire and building relationships with more singers.
I will be working on a wide range of repertoire, from scenes from Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Tippett’s The Knot Garden to pieces by Brahms, Debussy and Britten and more. I am looking forward to an exciting summer of music-making!
I really enjoyed performing in Opera Kensington’s recent gala, where I sang the Sandmann’s aria and ‘Brüderschen Komm Danz Mit Mir’ from Humperdinck’s ‘Hansel and Gretel’ in a lovely concert in Kensington, with a wonderful team of singers and musicians.
It was also a pleasure to dip back into consort singing by joining the Petersham Consort for their Spring concert, which included works by Allegri and Guerrero.
This week, I look forward to joining forces with the wonderful Tina Gelnere and Chris Coote again for another concert, this time at the lovely Bognor Regis Music Club. This will be my second visit to the club this year and I look forward to singing in this venue, which has a lovely atmosphere. Do come along for an evening of Opera and Song!
I had a wonderful time performing in the Borough New Music series last week, where it was my pleasure to premiere works by Joel Järventausta and Frederick Viner, alongside works by Janet Oates, Dai Fujikura, Tansy Davies and Jonathan Harvey. An exciting programme that was well received and a real pleasure to perform! It was wonderful to sing alongside Janet and Jill House and to be accompanied by Clare Simmonds at the piano.
This coming Tuesday (19th) I am performing at the exciting Borough New Music concert series. I will be premiering works by Joel Järventausta and Frederick Viner alongside works by featured composer Janet Oates and Tansy Davies, Dai Fujikura and Jonathan Harvey. It would be lovely to see you there to support this wonderful concert series dedicated to new music, please do come along to St George the Martyr Church on Borough High Street on Tuesday, 1pm!
I am so excited to announce I’ll be performing in Bernstein’s ‘Mass’ at the Southbank Centre in April. The performance will include the National Youth Orchestra and Chineke! Junior Orchestra and will be conducted by Marin Alsop. I have had a fantastic time preparing this piece with all the cast and crew and I am looking forward to the performances. I am also very proud to be singing the soprano solo ‘Thank you’ and other solo lines at various points.
I am delighted to announce that I will be performing the role of Suor Dolcina in a new production of Puccini’s ‘Suor Angelica’ with the Minotaur Opera Company as part of Heraklion Piano Festival (Crete, Greece).
Performances will be on the 16th and 17th February 2018.
