Described as both 'promising' and 'fresh' (Bachtrack), mezzo soprano Bethany Horak-Hallett is currently studying towards a Masters in Performance at Trinity Laban with the generous support of the Noble Award, taught by Alison Wells and coached by Kelvin Lim. Having completed an academic Masters in Music from at Leeds University in 2012, Bethany has since been working as a freelance singer both nationally and internationally.

Since moving to London, Bethany has taken on a number of exciting musical projects, including various soloist projects, soprano and alto engagements with Voces8, Erebus Ensemble, Sansara, St Paul’s Cathedral Consort, The Delphian Singers, performances with the Tallis Scholars, tutelage under John Evans, vocal teacher at Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and soprano member of the coveted Genesis Sixteen Choral Scholarship under the direction of Harry Christophers.

Recently, Bethany has been selected to take part in masterclasses with David Gowland of the ROH, Brigitte Fassbaender as part of the Wigmore Hall artistic series, Mary Bevan as part of the Milton Abbey International Music Festival, and Ruby Philogene as part of the Trinity Laban masterclass series.

Solo roles have included Lucia (The Rape of Lucretia), Giovanna (Giovanna d'Arco), Mimi (La bohème), Dido, Sorceress, Second Witch, Belinda (Dido and Aeneas), Peaseblossom (A Midsummer Night's Dream), projects with Opera North, Brighton Early Music Festival, Surrey Opera, Hashtag Opera, Milton Abbey International Music Festival, and many other fringe companies. Roles performed in scenes include Orfeo (Orfeo ed Euridice), Cherubino (Le Nozze di Figaro), Hänsel (Hänsel und Gretel). As well as performing, Bethany is passionate about music education, and works alongside ensembles and organisations such as Voces8 and Brighton Early Music Festival as part of their outreach programmes.
