Originally a BMus Honours graduate from the University of Edinburgh and then a Masters in Music Therapy postgraduate from Queen Margaret University (Edinburgh); Deborah Holborn (née Miller) is currently studying voice at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with Neil Baker. Recent opera roles have included: “Miss Jessel” (Turn of the Screw), “Orange Seller” (Carmen), “Flower Maiden” (Parsifal), “Second Lady” (Dido and Aeneas) and “Mother Goose” (The Rake’s Progress). Roles from opera scenes include: “Second Lady” (The Magic Flute), “Fiordiligi” (Cosi fan tutte), “Bianca” (La Rondine), “Marcellina” (The Marriage of Figaro), “Donna Anna” (Don Giovanni), “Mercedes” (Carmen) and both “Witch” and “Hansel” (Hansel and Gretel). Deborah was also fortunate to be involved in the UK premier of Alexander McCall-Smith and Tom Cunningham’s “Okavango Macbeth” (including a CD recording). She enjoyed singing with Edinburgh University Singers for four years under the eye of John Kitchen and with the Edinburgh Festival Chorus under Christopher Bell for two years. Before moving to London, she was the soloist in Rossini’s “Petite Messe Solonelle” and other oratorio works such as “Coronation Mass”, “Missa Brevis in D” (Mozart) and “Mass in G” (Schubert). A choral scholar in St. Mary’s Metropolitan Cathedral for 18 months involved many solo and ensemble performances there as well as around concert halls and churches of Edinburgh. Whilst at Trinity Laban she was a regular soloist with the Trinity Laban chamber choir and has performed in many other Trinity Laban concerts. She has also had opportunities to explore and perform contemporary music around London (Lixenburg, Martlew and Rowley). Future performances include “Dorabella” (Cosi fan tutte) with Kent opera and “Lady Billows” (Albert Herring) in Trinity Laban Opera Scenes.
