After taking some time off to have my second child, I am now back singing again and starting off with some chamber recitals during autumn 2016. Full details to come…
12 March 2014
It was with great sadness I had to pull out of all my recent singing engagements as well as of Carmina Burana in July this year. The reason is a happy one: I am expecting my second child, but have had some complications which saw me bed bound for most of autumn 2013. I am now better and doing some producing for the New London Opera Players new and exciting production of CarMen which is an all male version of Bizet’s Carmen. I plan to be back singing again in autumn 2014, all being well.

Another New Role in 2014
Marzelline in Beethoven’s Fidelio is my next role to learn. I was asked to do it earlier this year, but wasn’t available. The opportunity has come again and I am excited to learn it. I love getting my teeth into a new character both musically and dramatically. Once again, this is for The New London Opera Players. More information to come.
