I started singing after graduating from Durham University with a degree in music specialising in composition. My operatic roles have since included the title role of Tosca for Heritage Opera; Fiordiligi Cosi fan Tutte for Opera UK and Birmingham Chamber Orchestra; Queen of the Night Die Zauberflöte for British Youth Opera and Surrey Opera; Clorinda La Cenerentola and Adina L’elisir d’amore for Vox Lirika and Tatyana Eugene Onegin for Birmingham Chamber Opera. I played the Lace Seller Death in Venice in the Aldeburgh Festival, directed by Yoshi Oida; a role I went on to sing at the Bregenz Festival along with the ZDF Director and Airport Officer in Playing Away, directed by David Pountney.
As a concert performer I have sung in venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Cadogan Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall as well as in performances on BBC Radio 3. I have sung as a soloist internationally performing works including Brahms’ Requiem, Dvořák's Mass in D and Te Deum, Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Creation, Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, Mozart’s Exsultate, Jubilate, Schubert’s Magnificat and Mass in G, Poulenc’s Gloria, Vivaldi’s Gloria and Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder. I continue my vocal studies with Arwel Treharne Morgan and have been coached by David Syrus, Mary King, Anthony Legge and Donald Maxwell.
As a session singer I have sung with the BBC Singers, London Voices, Vocals Unlimited, RSVP Voices and Conventus recording in venues such as Abbey Road and Maida Vale Studios. I now also have my own studio where I record my voice and compositions for hundreds of clients around the world, working on a variety of projects including film and TV soundtracks as well as new classical and contemporary works.
In 2023 my plans include performances of Dvorak's Mass in D and Te Deum, Schubert's Mass in G and Haydn's Kleine Orgelmesse, as well as a recital of classic arias and some of my own compositions.
