Anna graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music with a First Class Bacheor of Music degree studying with world renowned Soprano, Mary Plazas. Anna begins has Masters in Opera at the Royal College of Music, London in September 2016. During this summer, Anna will be joining the International Gilbert and Sullivan Company as an ensemble member and covering various roles for their UK Tour.

Alongside Anna being a part of Operatic productions, she often sings as part of Opera gala Evenings in restaurants and corporate events. Anna also often sings oratorio repertoire for choral society's around the UK as well.

Anna most recently performed as part of Thursford's Christmas Spectacular where upon she sang various styles from Opera to Jazz as a soloist and ensemble member. Whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music, Anna performed as part of RNCM Opera Excerpts. These roles included Ramiro in Mozart’s La Finta Giardinera, Louise in La Vie Parisienne, Hansel in Hansel and Gretel, Louise in Il Matrimonio Segreto and Dorabella in Cosi fan Tutti. Anna was also an ensemble member and soloist in RNCM’s production of Paradise Moscow by Shostakovich. Comments on playing the role of Hansel:

“Outstanding technical command and use of technique in the service of the interpretation of character, text and music. Entirely formed with an excellent, strong, performance personality; professional artist.” Stefan Janski, RNCM Head of Opera.

Anna also performed as a soloist in RNCM’s Day of Song: Caberet! This included songs by Kurt Weill, RNCM Composer Ben Parry and John Kander’s Chicago. As part of RNCM’s Chamber Music festival she also performed Mozart’s coronation Mass as a soloist with RNCM’s Chamber Choir and Orchestra and Janacek’s The diary of one who disappeared.

Anna is also a keen dancer which has led way to extra opportunities within RNCM as she performed as a solo dancer within Sondheim’s Company, Shotakovicks’s Paradise Moscow, Cole Porter’s Kiss me Kate and Frank Loesser’s Guys and Dolls. Most recently Anna performed the solo dancer role of Anna II alongside singer/actress Jessie Buckley in Kurt Weill’s The Seven Deadly Sins. This was performed with the Halle Orchestra led by Sir Mark Elder at the Bridgewater Hall. Reviews include:

“Anna Cooper danced with great elegance and controlled energy even in the grittiest corners.” Rohan Shotton, Bach Track Review

Alongside Anna developing her personal performing career she has always felt the importance of inspiring and encouraging the development of young adults within the performing arts. This lead way for her strong involvement within RNCM’s Community Outreach department. She has been involved in projects such as RNCM’s Youth Perform for the past 4 years. Her role began as a Vocal Mentor and later developed to choreographer, assistant director then RNCM’s Education Project Manager. She also received the Leverhulme Music Mentorship Trust fund award to support a project I developed which infused music and dance in an improvisatory environment. Her passion for education work within the performing arts began before she came to RNCM when she was the Performing Arts Co-ordinator in an American Summer camp in New York and later taught English through performing arts in a King’s College Summer camp in China.

Before her time at RNCM, Anna was a choral Scholar with Levens Choir, Kendal. They nurtured her development through financial support with singing lessons and gave her performing opportunities. Anna also studied music A Level at Queen Elizabeth School, Kirkby Lonsdale in which she performed at many events including playing Johanna in Sweeney Todd, chorus member in Grease and Fat Sam’s singers in Bugsy Malone. Anna regularly returns to the school to perform for the students.
