I always loved languages and music, and after a language degree from Clare College, Cambridge University, I pursued a singing career, which has led me to singing a lot of Foreign Stuff!
In Toulouse, I busked opera arias and enjoyed free tickets to the opera from passing divas. After studying at Trinity College of Music, I lived in Bremen, Germany, performing lieder with pianist Claudia Birkholz.
I then studied with Noelle Barker at the Royal Academy of Music, and with Marie McLaughlin and I have worked with many of the leading directors and conductors in the country, and in the Chorus of the Royal Opera House.
Venues have varied from those busking days in Rue St Rome, Toulouse, to theatres and concert halls, to a converted slaughterhouse, art galleries, and castles in Germany, the 17thC Mauritshuis in Holland, the Handel House Museum in London, and Sandringham House.
