Hello, and thank you for visiting my page!

I am absolutely thrilled to have been selected to sing First Niece for the Co-Opera Co. Summer Development Programme and cannot wait to start work with the brilliant team on 3rd August (which is also my 21st birthday!!) Peter Grimes is indubitably one of my favourite operas; I remember being overwhelmed by the power of the music and the contemporary relevance of the opera's message the first time I listened to it as a teenager.

This course will be at an exciting interlude in my life: I have just finished my Music and German undergraduate degree at King's College London, and I am off to Guildhall School of Music and Drama in September to study on their vocal Masters course. I feel immensely priveleged to have been offered the opportunity to sing with Co-Opera Co. at this stage, and having met and worked with the team in my audition, I feel certain that what I learn on this course will be a vital part of my development as a performer.

I have been fortunate enough to sing with a number of opera companies since moving to London, including Hampstead Garden Opera, TimeZone Theatre and Opera Lyrica, which is where I met Matthew, our conductor for Peter Grimes. As a choral scholar at King's College London, I have been studying with Ryland Davies at the Royal Academy of Music, and will be working with Gary Coward at Guildhall School of Music and Drama from September 2015.

I will be immensely grateful to anyone who is kind enough to sponsor me and support my development as a singer as I approach the start of my masters. Training as an opera singer is an ambition I have held since I was 8 years old, and it is incredibly exciting to see that dream start to become a reality. I will be sending all sponsors updates on my progress throughout the course, and beyond if they wish, so please do tick the box to share your email address with me. You can also follow me on Twitter or like my page on Facebook for regular news and updates.
