I'm a Cardiff based singer looking for freelance work. I specialise in classical singing but I enjoy singing a range of styles!
I am Leeds born soprano and pianist. Having recently graduated from Postgraduate Vocal Studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama under the tutelage of Lorna Anderson, I am a freelance singer based in Cardiff, Wales. During my studies at the college, I was awarded the Eileen Price Prize for Lieder Singing and performed in numerous operatic productions and scenes including: Kurt Weil's 'Street Scene', Handel's 'Semele' (collaboration and tour with Mid Wales Opera), Verdi's 'Falstaff' and Mozart's 'Le Nozze di Figaro', 'Because I Could Not Stop for Death' and 'Brush Up Your Shakespeare' (Postgraduate Opera Scenes). I had the chance to work with WNO, singing chorus and the role of Post Office Clerk for the 2016 Welsh National Youth Theatre Production of Kommilitonnen! by Peter Maxwell Davies. I performed new compositions by RWCMD composers and was a member of the college Chamber Choir. I also performed regularly with the BBC National Chorus of Wales on a Bursary Scholarship. I studied Drama and Music at the University of Hull where I was awarded the Andrew Brown Memorial Prize for Music Performance. I sang in the university operatic productions and was a keen member and treasurer of the university Gilbert and Sullivan Society which performed at the International G&S Festival. I sang in the Hull Early Music Ensemble lead by Zak Ozmo and later Dr George Kennaway which toured London and the North culminating in a performance at Beverley Early Music Festival. I also played the role of Clarice in 'A Servant to Two Masters', undertaking commedia dell'arte training with Dr Louise Peacock. I am also interested in outreach and education work, I teach at the Vale School of Music and have lead and assisted singing groups and workshops with the University of Hull. I was a workshop assistant for Hull Truck Youth Theatre.
