Carolyn Burnley is a mezzo soprano with good musicianship skills looking for solo, dep/bump or ensemble singing work.
Carolyn studies singing with Brian Parsons and has studied at Morley College where she has been awarded a places on both the aria masterclass with Anthony Roden and the highly acclaimed Lieder Master Class with Richard Jackson. She has attended AIMS International Music School where she has participated in master classes with noted vocal coaches. 2017 has so far been a busy year for Carolyn when she was invited back to the Waltham St. Lawrence Choral Festival as alto soloist in Handel's Coronation Anthems; participated in a concert of Italian arias in aid of the refugee crisis; played Mad Margaret in "Ruddigore" by Gilbert & Sullivan; and a recital at St. George's, Beckenham. Last year Carolyn made her debut appearance as the alto soloist in the Mozart Requiem and had a solo role in Suor Angelica, with Porcupine Productions in Putney and St. Jame's, Piccadily. She has sung opera chorus with Surrey Opera, Hashtag Opera, Porcupine Productions, Utopians Unlimited and at AIMS. Carolyn enjoys singing and performing art songs and is always building on this repertoire. In particular she enjoys singing Lieder having studied German. Carolyn loves singing solo but is also a useful bump or dep for choral societies and church choirs (usually sop or sop 2 in churches) and, as she is also violinist and orchestral player, has good musicianship skills. She works as a stand-in for several churches, sometimes leading hymns or worship songs and sometimes as part of the choir for weddings and special services. Carolyn has extensive choral singing experience from her time with London Choral Society when the conductor was a young up and coming conductor called Simon Rattle! With this choir Carolyn sang many of the major choral works at top concert venues around London with many famous soloists and conductors. Carolyn originally studied violin and classical guitar as a junior scholarship student at Trinity College of Music, London.
