I'm now approaching the end of first term at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and so much has happened! Here's a quick run-down:
I have been involved in two sets of opera scenes at Trinity Laban already this term, and am in an another scene on 13th December as Don Ramiro in Rossini's La Cenerentola. The opera scenes are an opportunity for us to work intensely on music and stagecraft, and showcase postgraduate singers throughout the year. We'll also be ending the academic year with a fully-staged opera.
2. Other performances
Choral concerts in Oxford and Maida Vale, a recital in North Norfolk, and an analytical performance of some Purcell in a performance-seminar for GCSE students. During this term I also appeared as a young artist with Berwick Festival Opera and in an opera gala with Trinity Laban's student-run opera company, PuzzlePiece Opera.
I'm very excited to be joining Trinity Laban's Chamber Choir (directed by Stephen Jackson) next term, and also organising some recitals around the UK alongside other young artists.
