Joanna has been selected as a 2018 Britten-Pears young artist, and will be spending a week in Snape Maltings in October 2018 studying Wolf Lieder with Roger Vignoles, Susan Roberts and Richard Stokes in a series of public masterclasses and recital on 7 October.
Yesterday Joanna took part in a masterclass led by soprano Rachel Nicholls in the Ledger Recital Room at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, performing Britten and Gounod.
On 9 Dec, Joanna will perform a lunchtime recital – Tell me the Truth about Love – as part of Bridgewater Hall’s “Introducing” series with baritone John Holland-Avery and pianist Rachel Fright. The programme features songs by Britten, Mozart, Brahms and Wolf. The recital begins at 12:45pm and entry is free.
This evening Joanna will be singing songs by Copland and Britten at the National Portrait Gallery with other singers from the Portrait Choir and pianist Gavin Roberts. Entry is free – the recital starts at 8pm in Room 22.
I’ll be singing Britten’s Canticle II Abraham and Isaac in two free performances at the National Portrait Gallery in London this Sunday. Performances start at 11am and 1:15pm – no tickets required.
This week I’m off to Aldeburgh, singing Hippolyta in Benjamin Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, appropriately for the week of Midsummer! I’ll also be singing at The Forge in Camden on Sunday with new vocal quartet Caminetto Voices – come along at 11am for the best coffee in Camden and Brahms’ gorgeous Liebeslieder Waltzes.
I’ve added a couple of recordings taken in Sweden and Cambridge with fantastic pianists Freddie Brown and Jeremy Cole – an eclectic selection of Johann Strauss and Benjamin Britten. Enjoy!
