After classical voice training and a degree in creative and performing arts,I went on to sing many opera roles written for the lyric coloratura soprano.My voice type means I can sing across a wide vocal range and am able to sing fast, decorative musical passages and can hit particularly high notes in opera arias!
I have a versatile voice suited to early music and baroque, classical and opera, lighter music such as 20th century operetta and modern classical crossover, songs from musicals and films and celtic ballads.
