Welsh soprano Catrin Woodruff has recently completed with distinction her postgraduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music, where she studied with Louise Winter. She previously completed a BA in Music with First Class honours from the University of York.
As a soloist, Catrin has performed a wide variety of song, sacred works and opera. Last summer, she sang the role of Fiordiligi for Opera Dei Lumi's concert performances of Così Fan Tutte in Edinburgh and Berwick, and appeared in two concerts featuring the works of C.P.E Bach in the York Early Music Festival. Between 2012 and 2014, she toured the North of England with Young Opera Venture's 'Opera Appetizers' show (in which she performed extracts from the roles of First Lady, Frasquita, Anne Page and Fiordiligi), mainly performing in towns and villages where live opera performances are rarely heard. In December 2012, she performed the role of Minerva in the RNCM production of Monteverdi's opera Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria, receiving excellent reviews from Manchester Theatre Awards and Opera magazine. Other recent performances include Rossini's Petite Messe Solonelle with the York University Choir, Haydn's Creation with the Manx Festival Chorus, Mahler's Fourth Symphony with the Stockport Symphony Orchestra, Clerambault's Léandre et Hero in St. Martin in the Fields and L'Olimpiade - An Opera (Aristea) at the York Early Music Festival. In Summer 2015 she will join Pop-Up Opera as Elvira in their touring production of Rossini's L'Italiana in Algeri.
Catrin is also a keen performer of ensemble and consort music, and has appeared with numerous groups including Echoris, the RNCM Chamber Choir and The 24. With Norwegian ensemble Edvard Grieg Kor, she has recorded Elgar's King Olaf under the baton of Sir Andrew Davis, released under the Chandos label. In March she was a member of the chorus in Bergen National Opera's production of Don Giovanni, and in August she will perform and record Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass with EGK.
Catrin has received numerous awards, including The Manchester Welsh Society award in both 2012 and 2014, and in 2013 was a finalist in the W. Towyn Roberts Scholarship Prize at the National Eisteddfod.
