I am currently a Mezzo-Soprano on the International Opera School at the Royal College of Music as an ABRSM Scholar, one of the most prestigious awards to be awarded. Since starting at the RCM I have sung roles such as Prince Orlofsky (Die Fledermaus, Strauss) and the title role Ariodante (Ariodante, Handel) as part of the London Handel Festival. I am a Wagner Scholar, I was awarded a scholarship to go the Bayreuth Festpiele (Aug, 2014). I am also a Samling Artist, where I was invited to attend their week long residence course to work with professionals such as Thomas Moser (tenor) and Tim Carroll (director) (Nov, 2014). I was fortunate to have been awarded a Tutton Award from Help Musicians UK, which has been such a help due to financial difficulties. I am very grateful. I am also apart of the Josephine Baker Trust, which gives young singers a chance to work professionally for a fee.
