Soprano Susanna Hurrell, recent recipient of the Peter Hulsen Orchestral Song Award, will join Southbank Sinfonia at the Royal Opera House this Sunday for an evening of the finest orchestral song.
The Peter Hulsen Orchestral Song Award, now in its second year, was launched by Southbank Sinfonia in collaboration with the Musicians Benevolent Fund. It is a biennial award to provide an outstanding young singer with the opportunity to perform orchestral song with Southbank Sinfonia. Singers who have received a major named award from the Fund in 2007 and 2008 are invited to audition and submit a programme for consideration. The selected singer is given the opportunity to rehearse and work with a mentor on their chosen repertoire and perform with Southbank Sinfonia.
Soprano Susanna Hurrell was born in London to a musical family and joined the undergraduate programme at the Royal College of Music in 2005. After graduating with first class honours she gained a place to study with Patricia Rozario at the RCM International Opera School where she is currently supported by an HR Taylor Trust award and a Musicians Benevolent Fund Miriam Licette Scholarship. She is pleased to have been awarded a place at the National Opera Studio where she will continue her studies in September. She is delighted to be the second recipient of the Peter Hulsen Orchestral Song award and is extremely grateful to Peter Hulsen for his generous support of young musicians.
The recital will take place at the Linbury Studio, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden at 6.00pm this Sunday (29 May). Tickets are £8 and are available by calling 020 7304 4000 or visiting the Royal Opera House website
We hope to see you there!
