Biography

I was born in Belgium where I sang with the children’s chorus of the Opera Royal de Wallonie and took part in many productions. After completing a degree in Anthropology, I joined the Royal Conservatoire of Music of Liège to study singing with Greta de Reyghere. At the time, I was a member of La Capella Henry Dumont and Les Demoiselles de Port Royal ensembles and regularly performed in the region, including as part of the Festival de Wallonie.

In 2007, I moved to England to further my musical training and settled in Cambridge in 2009. In parallel to my work at the Centre of Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities of the University of Cambridge (CRASSH), I was a member of various choirs, including the Fairhaven Singersthe Choir of Christ’s College, Cambridge and the University of Cambridge Chamber Choir. This gave me the opportunity to regularly perform in Cambridge and London. In September 2015, I relocated to Leeds to work with the Opera North Education Department and made my debut with Leeds Baroque Choir. In 2018, I became a member of Manchester Chamber Choir and Kantos Chamber Choir.

As soloist, I have given recitals in England, Ireland and Belgium. I have a particular interest in chamber and early music and have been part of small ensembles such as the Spring Trio (voice, clarinet and piano), Le chant du cor (voice, horn and piano), Musicke in the Ayre (voice and lute), the Cambridge University Baroque Ensemble, the Arioso Baroque Ensemble, Ad Hoc Baroque and Otley Baroque. Solo engagements have included the role of Belinda in Purcell’s ‘Dido and Aeneas’ featuring Andrew Kennedy and Rebecca Lodge as well as the soprano part in Handel’s ‘Messiah’ directed by Graham Walker.

Over the years, I have learned from internationally renowned singers including Lynne DawsonEmma KirkbyMaria Cristina Kiehr, Noelle Barker, Nicholas ClaptonSteven VarcoeNeil JenkingsJane Manning , Ron Morris and Lynette Alcantara.

I have also taken part in the Rameau Academy in London with the International Rameau Ensemble and Christian Curnyn, as well as the Cappella Pratensis Summer school in Antwerp as part of Laus Polyphoniae.
