French mezzo-soprano of Swedish and Italian ascent, Clémence Faber starts singing at age three at the Conservatoire de Chantepie, Brittany. She joins the Children Choir of the Paris National Opera in 2003 and trains and performs at the Salle Pleyel, the Théâtre du Châtelet, the Bastille Opera. She makes her debut at age 17 at the Opéra Comique under Laurence Equilbey, singing the role of Cis in Britten’s Albert Herring.
Having completed in Paris a Bachelor in History at the Sorbonne University and a Masters in Politics at Sciences Po Paris, Clémence moves to Glasgow in 2014 to study singing at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland under Wilma MacDougall. She graduates from her Masters in Vocal Performance in June 2017.
Extremely versatile performer, Clémence nourrishes a special bond to baroque and early music. She has been training under the Italian contralto Sara Mingardo since 2015 and has studied in masterclass with Vivica Genaux, Patricia Ciofi, Stéphanie d’Oustrac and Roberta Mameli. She has sung the alto solo in Vivaldi’s Magnificat with Les Cris de Paris (dir. Geoffroy Jourdain), a Messiah in Gdansk with the Polski Chor Kameralny (dir. Jan Lukaszewski), the alto solo from the Haydn’s Theresienmasse and the second soprano in Vivaldi’s Gloria with Capella Sacra in Düdingen. In 2017, she is a finalist of the prestigious Concours international de chant baroque de Froville.
Eager recitalist, Clémence has received the precious advice of Malcolm Martineau while studying in Scotland and she was a finalist of the Governor’s Recital Prize for singing. Clémence also sings opera, collaborating with British Youth Opera in 2017 (Dorabella in Cosi fan tutte and Angelina in La Cenerentola), singing Donna Elvira on the Don Giovanni production with the Compagnie Les Hyades and getting to perform the roles of Dorabella (Cosi fan tutte), Virtù (L’incoronazione di Poppea), Zerlina (Don Giovanni), Augusta Tabor (The Ballad of Baby Doe), Second Lady (Die Zauberflöte) and Bianca (The Rape of Lucretia) with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
