Autumn News 2018

I am delighted to announce that I have joined the roster at James Black Management

Celebrating the centenary of Leonard Bernstein‘s birth, I will be performing his music as part of the London Song Festival‘s opening concert.

As part of the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme, I am looking forward to exploring lieder by Hugo Wolf with Roger Vignoles and Richard Stokes at Snape Maltings.

For Lontano, I shall record the role of Pierrot in Dame Ethel Smyth‘s Fête Galante with Retrospect Opera conducted by Odaline de la Martinez.

In four concert performances with New Sussex Opera, I shall perform the role of the Herald in Charles Villiers Stanford‘s The Travelling Companion that will also be recorded by Somm Recordings for future release.

Spring 2018 News

I am happy to announce that I have been selected to be a 2018 Young Artist at Opera Holland Park London, performing and covering the role of Marchese d’Obigny in La Traviata this summer.

Before then, I am looking forward to a handful of concerts: Beethoven and Dvorak in February with Penshurst Choral Society, and Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle in March with The University of Plymouth Choral Society. In March and April I will be singing bass solos as part of Handel Messiah (staged) with the Merry Opera Company and directed by John Ramster.
