I'm seeking financial help to enable me to complete my final year of Masters Vocal training at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music, London. Money raised will go towards the £11,120 tuition costs for the 2015-16 academic year.
Studying at the RAM provides me world-class coaching in vocal technique and repertoire, multiple languages, drama and movement without which, I will not be able to compete with other aspiring opera singers.
To fulfill my potential, perform Opera and to appear in concert on the international stage.
I am currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music, London under the tutelage of Michael Chance (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Chance) and James Baillieu (http://www.ram.ac.uk/about-us;/staff/james-baillieu). This August, I have been involved in a series of Masterclasses with renowned Soprano Lynne Dawson and Counter-Tenor Daniel Taylor and performed multiple recitals at '180 degrees festival' in Sofia, Bulgaria. I performed on stage in the Sam Wannamaker Playhouse, Shakespeare's Globe in Nick Drake's new play 'All the Angels', directed by Jonathan Munby.
In 2015, I have sung as a soloist at the internationally acclaimed St. Endellion Festival, Cornwall, where I am returning this September. I appear as the Mezzo Soloist on the recently released Magnificat by Oliver Tarney (http://www.olivertarney.co.uk) which has reached number 5 on the iTunes Classical Music Charts shortly after release and in which I will be appearing in March 2016 at the prestigious Cadogan Hall, London.
In the summer of 2014, I performed Durufle Requiem solos on tour to France with the Halle Youth Ensembles, in locations including Chartres Cathedral and La Madeleine, Paris. I also appeared in Opera Holland Park's acclaimed 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' by Will Todd and as a soloist with the Southern Sinfonia.
Having begun my singing life as 'Head Soloist' Girl Chorister at Ripon Cathedral, I obtained both a Major Music Scholarship and an All Round Scholarship to Uppingham School where I was incredibly fortunate to meet Susan Waters (singing teacher) and a very supportive Music Department. Whilst studying at Uppingham, I sung as a soloist at St. John's, Smith Square and Captained the Choir on a tour to Hong Kong.
Having left Uppingham, I went on to study with Susan Waters at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Baribican, London. During my time at the Guildhall, I sang as a soloist on tour at Rouen Opera House and was involved in concerts in the Barbican Hall and LSO St. Luke's. I was generously supported by the Uppingham Foundation.
