About Lindsey

Singer (Soprano)
London
Public liability insurance
Lindsey is a London-based soprano who is currently studying with Alex Ashworth (RAM).

British soprano Lindsey James is a freelance singer and part-time music educator based in London. She obtained a PGCE from the Institute of Education in 2016 whilst simultaneously completing her choral training on the prestigious Genesis Sixteen scheme, and in 2015 graduated with first-class honours in Music from King’s College London, where she was a choral scholar under David Trendell and Gareth Wilson. She currently studies with Alex Ashworth. As a performer, Lindsey particularly enjoys participating in choral and consort work, plus voice and piano recitals, and she constantly seeks to expand her solo oratorio repertoire. Most recently, Lindsey has performed on a professional basis with the Genesis Sixteen alumni choir echo, at Sir James MacMillan’s Cumnock Tryst Festival, for various Philharmonia Chorus engagements at the Royal Festival Hall and Royal Albert Hall, and has deputised and recorded in ensembles such as The Carice Singers and the Rodolfus Choir. As a result of the success of such events, Lindsey’s upcoming performances in 2018 include a return to St John’s Smith Square with echo, and work as part of the Ensemble-in-Residence at the Chiltern Arts Festival. As a soloist, recitals planned for 2018 include Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, Poulenc’s Fiancaillies pour rire, and Messiaen’s Trois melodies. During her three years as a Choral Scholar, Lindsey participated in several tours to destinations including Hong Kong, Milan, Venice, Gibraltar and Paris. She has sung several times on BBC Radio 3 and 4, and features on two CDs released on the Delphian label. Most notably, Lindsey can be heard singing the Principal Soprano solo on the track ‘Nigra sum sed formosa’ by Francis Pott, on the 2016 disc In Memoriam. Lindsey sings for a variety of religious and non-religious occasions including weddings, funerals, civil ceremonies, anniversary and birthday celebrations. As a cellist, she is also able to organise instrumental ensembles, such as a string quartet or trio, to perform at your event.

The music [Francis Pott's setting of 'Nigra sum sed formosa'] has some beguiling textures – it’s a finely woven musical tapestry. For the most part the music is gentle and contemplative. From time to time solo voices soar out of and over the main choir and special praise is due for principal soprano, Lindsey James.

A committed teacher, Lindsey comes to her classes thoroughly prepared. She is very attentive to my needs and has accurately identified several of my vocal issues. Not only has she provided me with effective solutions in a short amount of time and in a fun and imaginative way, but she has also encouraged and inspired me to be more musical and expressive with my voice.

I accompanied Lindsey on the piano when she kindly sang at my Charity Concert at the Sheffield Town Hall in 2014. She is a professional, friendly and brilliant singer.
