Mezzo-soprano  

Harp     Piano     Flute     Fiddle     Cello     Conductor

I started singing very late in life and certainly never thought that my idea to take “one or two singing lessons” would change the path of my life.  At the time I was working for Switzerland’s leading law firm.  Since then I have performed for world leaders, royalty, on opera stages and concert halls world-wide.  

I sang "Rule Britannia" as soloist for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee at Victoria Hall in Geneva, Dorablla in Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte, Second Lady in Die Zauberflöte, Zita in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi and even Jane in Calamity Jane (a role for which I didn’t even have to audition on the basis that “you resemble this role”).  These days I am learning the roles of Ulrica (un Ballo in Maschera) and Azucena  (Il Trovatore) - my voice has clearly changed a lot since the Dorabella days!

I occasionally joke that God pays my bills due to how often I sing for Oratorios, Masses, weddings, funerals, Easter, Christmas etc.

My passion is for voice and orchestra.  I have performed Elgar’s Sea Pictures (in the United Kingdom), Wagner Wesendonk-lieder, Brahms Alto Rhapsody and in October 2015 will perform as alto soloist for Elgar’s Music Makers.
