Sussex-based Welsh soprano Catrin Woodruff has recently completed her studies at The Alexander Gibson Opera School at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where she studied with Wilma MacDougall and was a grateful recipient of funding from the RCS Trust, The Countess of Munster Trust and the Sir James Caird Travelling Scholarship Trust. She previously studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and the University of York.

Operatic roles include Belinda Dido and Aeneas, Thérèse Les Mamelles de Tirésias (Royal Conservatoire of Scotland), Eltruda The Masque of Alfred, Beatrice Much Ado About Nothing (Northern Opera Group), Carolina Il Matrimonio Segreto, Elvira L'Italiana in Algeri (Pop-up Opera), Susanna Le Nozze di Figaro (Opera dei Lumi), Dido Dido & Aeneas (Brighton Early Music Festival), and Kate Pinkerton Madama Butterfly (Bergen National Opera). Catrin was recently the winner of the Norma Grieg French Song Prize at the RCS, and was runner-up at Llangollen Musical Eisteddfod International Voice of the Future 2017. Also at home on the concert platform, recent oratorio engagements repertoire include Britten’s War Requiem, Haydn’s Nelson Mass, and Mozart’s Mass in C Minor.

Forthcoming engagements include returning to the role of Beatrice in a new production of Stanford’s Much Ado About Nothing with Northern Opera Group, and a series of performances of Peter Grimes with Bergen National Opera, including a new recording for Chandos. Catrin is delighted to have been selected to be a Samling artist in 2020.
