ENGLISH:

Described as "Flawless" in her last performance of Mozart's Requiem (ConcertoNet), Delphine has recently received her Master of Music with distinction from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama studying with Gary Coward. She was the winner of the Tracey Chadwell Memorial Award for her excellence at the Wigmore Hall Voicework new music performance in 2018 for the song premiere of composer's Dimitrios Rontsis called 'Involutae Septempunctata'.


Delphine has developed a strong interest in two very different repertoire such as baroque music, with a special interest for Bach and Handel performance practice; and music from 20th century to today.
She specially enjoy working on new music that allows a direct collaboration with the composer and writer that is one of the most exciting musical experience that one can have.

Delphine has recently performed the role of Katie in the new opera 'Years ago I died' composed by Clare Elton with libretto by Edward Einhorn at the Peckham Asylum Chapel in London.
Delphine has been cast as Sophie (Werther), Nedda (I pagliacci), Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier) for various Opera Scenes and Chocholka (the cunning little Vixen) for a reduced production. She has performed for the exhibition 'Opera: Passion, Power and Politics' at the Victoria and Albert hall museum in 2018. She was also Despina for the British Youth Opera Workshop led by Stuart Barker.

Delphine appeared regularly in concert platforms in Europe as soloist and as part of vocal ensembles. She performed at the Wigmore Hall, Barbican, Milton Court and in Music Festivals in France including Rocamadour and Sylvanes.
In summer 2016 She toured in the south of France with the Ensemble Baroque de Toulouse directed by Michel Brun and performed the Requiem Mass and the Missa Brevis KV 140 by Mozart.

Through various performances Delphine had the opportunity to work with conductors such as Andrea Marcon, Eamonn Dougan, Pavlo Beznosiuk and Michel Piquemal.
She also received, during her years of studies, the invaluable guidance from teachers, singers and coaches such as Emma Kirkby, Jennifer Smith, David Gowland, Edith Wiens, Susanne Stranders and Robert Levin to mention only some.


FRENCH:

Estimée "irréprochable" pour son interprétation du Requiem de Mozart sous la direction de Michel Brun, et "distinguée" à la Mozart Singing Competition 2016, Delphine a obtenu un Master en chant lyrique avec mention très bien à l'unanimité du jury à la Guildhall School of Music and Drama de Londres, guidée par son professeur Gary Coward. Membre trois ans durant du Guildhall Consort, elle s'est perfectionnée à la musique d'ensemble sous la direction de Eamonn Dougan (The Sixteen). Finaliste du Concours National de Chant Lyrique de Béziers, elle vient de se voir attribuer le Tracy Chadwell Memorial Award 2018, récompensant sa performance et son investissement au Wigmore Hall Voicework Recital à Londres en juin dernier.

Le public londonien l'a récemment entendue à Pekham Asylum Chapel où elle a créé le rôle de Katie dans l'opéra "Years ago I died" de Clare Elton. Elle a également participé à plusieurs scènes d'opéra: Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier -Stauss), Nedda (I Pagliacci - Leonvavallo), Sophie (Werther - Massenet), Chocholka (Little Vixen - Janacek), ainsi que Despina avec le British Youth Opera conduit par Stuart Baker.

Delphine chante régulièrement en Europe tant comme soliste que membre d'ensembles. Outre Londres: Wigmore Hall, Barbican Hall, Milton Court, Silk Street Theatre, lors du projet "Song in the City", le public l'aura appréciée à Lausanne en Suisse, et en France, particulièrement au Festival International de l'Abbaye de Sylvanes.
Delphine a eu l'opportunité de travailler auprès de grands chefs et metteurs en scène tels Andrea Marcon, Michel Brun, Michel Piquemal, Pavlo Beznosiuk. Elle aura aussi reçu l'enseignement et l'appui de professeurs, chanteurs et coachs de grande qualité tels Emma Kirkby, Jennifer Smith, David Gowland, Edith Wiens, Susanne Stranders et Robert Levin entre autres.

Née à Pont-de-Salars dans l'Aveyron, Delphine a toujours baigné dans un environnement artistique à travers la musique bien sûr, la danse, la peinture et le cirque. Elle a initié ses études de chant au Conservatoire à Rayonnement Départemental de l'Aveyron, département auquel elle reste fidèle, y chantant chaque été depuis 2009.
