Is that the sun I see?

I hope you've all had a lovely start to 2024, wherever you are in the world. Summer for some and cold months for others.. but we are slowly seeing the sun peak out of the clouds this weekend. YAY!

The first quarter of 2024 has been wonderful here! January kicked off with a cruise show with @littleoperacompany and I got a little break from the cold. We travelled from Lima to Easter Island and yes, I got to do a tour of Rapa Nui! A once in a lifetime kind of gig As soon as I landed back in London I re-packed my bags and headed to Oxford to sing for the @muzikfermata Conductors Workshop with @tobypurser_conductor. Another once in a lifetime gig because I got to sing Das Lied von der Erde (Mahler) with chamber orchestra..! It is definitely not the usual repertoire for my voice type but I absolutely LOVED doing it. It was a real treat and if the opportunity came up again, I will be jumping at it, that's for sure.


February brought friends back together with the London show of My Best Judys. This is a show that Caitlin Cassidy and I produced for the 2021 & 2022 Perth Fringe Festival. It has now been performed at the EdFringe '23 AND at Toulouse Lautrec in London, this time with Perth expat artists Madeleine Joyce and Lochlan Brown. That was a very nice reunion. I love how this show has ended up being ol' WAAPA kids from over the years to sing Judy tunes and have fun.


I then had a little jump in with Wild Arts, singing in one of their gala events at a gorgeous venue in Iscoyd. It was very beautiful and there was a fantastic programme of opera favourites arranged for string quartet. In March I trekked it up to Furness in the Lake District to work with the brilliant Alex Robinson and the @furnessbachchoir . Although, we were not singing Bach. We were premiering a new English translation of Seven Last Words by Haydn which was received extremely well. Which brings me to...


This month I will be heading to Liverpool to perform Poulenc's Gloria with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. I'm looking forward to working with @arianematiakh and being part of this concert. I’ve also never heard Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique live so I am extra excited!!In May I'll be travelling to perform with @swindonchoralsociety for the first time. The programme includes Mozart Requiem and Haydn Theresienmesse. Then in June I will be joining Claygate Choral Society to sing Will Todd's Mass in Blue and Rutter's Feel the Spirit.
