'Vani sono i lamenti... Svegliatevi nel core' (excerpt) - (Handel, from Giulio Cesare)
"Clara Kanter sang 'He was despised' with beautifully even tone and meaningful directness." Robert Hugill. (2017)
"Bach's Magnificat was both more thoughtful and equally triumphant... Clara Kanter's verse with two flutes (Philip Meader and Vicky McCardel) was outstanding amongst the solos with instrumental accompaniment.... The Mass in C by Beethoven, strong and serious, strenuous and sustained in its demands, presented a great challenge.... Clara Kanter impressed again as her alto voice combined with Cecilia Osmond's clear soprano..." Christopher Smith, Eastern Daily Press 23rd March 2015 (2015)
Mozart Coronation Mass for Eastbourne Choral Society: "The four soloists, soprano Andrea Tweedale, mezzo Clara Kanter, tenor Nick Pritchard and Bass Stephen Charlesworth, wove seamlessly in and out of the choral passages, and opened the Benedictus as a quartet in fine style." Robin Gregory, Eastbourne Herald (2013)
Schubert's Ständchen (D.920) for Lucy Cavendish College Choir: "the rich, contralto voice of Clara Kanter" Katie Hawks, Lucy Cavendish College Annual Newsletter (2008)
Clara was a choral scholar at Clare College, Cambridge, and went on to study with Dennis O’Neill at the Wales International Academy of Voice. Clara began her Postgraduate studies in 2014 at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where she studies with Katherine Paterson. Her operatic roles include Dame Carruthers (The Yeomen of the Guard), Junon (Actéon), Pitti-Sing (The Mikado), Sorceress (Dido and Aeneas), Third Lady (The Magic Flute), Zita (Gianni Schicchi), and La Zelatrice (Suor Angelica). She was an alto soloist in the world premiere of Stockhausen’s Mittwoch aus Licht for Birmingham Opera Company, and has performed roles at Buxton Opera House and the Arcola Theatre for London’s Grimeborn Festival.
Clara appears regularly in concert and oratorio. Highlights include Vivaldi’s Gloria at the Purcell Room, Handel's Messiah Part I under Laurence Cummings at Grosvenor Chapel, and Haydn’s Nelson Mass at St Martin-in-the-Fields with the Brandenburg Sinfonia, as well as artist Janice Kerbel's Turner Prize-nominated piece 'Doug' for the 2016 Montreal Biennale. She has featured in recordings as a soloist for the Armonico Consort and the Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and in broadcast for BBC World Service Radio. In 2014 she joined the Lucerne Festival Academy Chorus under Sir Simon Rattle to perform Berio’s Coro, and subsequently sang the piece again for Grete Pedersen and the Norwegian Soloists Choir. As an ensemble singer she has performed at London’s Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Hall, Royal Albert Hall, and Buckingham Palace, and recorded various film soundtracks, as well as performing at the ceremonies for the opening of the 2008 Olympic Games in China and the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize awards in Norway.
