Madeleine is a second year student at Trinity College, Cambridge, where she reads Japanese Studies. Madeleine began singing at a young age, taking part in weekly musicianship classes and performing in twice annual concerts with the National Youth Choir of Scotland's Edinburgh Area Choir. Moving through the choir ranks, she sang as a soprano as part of the choir's chamber ensemble for a year before joining the National Youth Choir of Scotland itself. She has now been a member of Trinity College Choir since 2014, under Stephen Layton. Aside from singing, she also plays the violin and viola, and is a past member of the Edinburgh Youth Orchestra and the Edinburgh Secondary Schools Orchestra. Highlights including performances of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and Tchaikovsky's violin concerto with Garry Walker and Jack Liebeck at the Usher Hall. Other past performances include Mozart Requiem at the Albert Hall during the 2014 BBC Proms with NYCoS, and Bach's B Minor Mass at St. John's Smith Square with Trinity College Choir. This summer she toured the USA with TCC, with concerts in The Church of St. Ignatius Loyola and The Cathedral of St Philip, Atlanta. In the upcoming months, she will sing the role of Barbarina in the CUOS production of The Marriage of Figaro, and will appear as a soloist in Handel's Messiah with TCMS. Madeleine also frequently performs as a member of a cappella group Cadenza, and in various choral consorts such as Novaura and Magdalena. As a soloist, Madeleine has performed in a number of festivals including the Celebration of Mozart festival at St Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh, and won the Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society award in 2012. When Madeleine is not singing, she is usually learning kanji, attempting to understand Japanese history or watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
