2010–2012

Helen was born in Bradford but is now based in the North West. She studied music and graduated from Cardiff University with BMus (hons) in 2001. After Graduation Helen moved to Bolton and worked in Sales & Marketing before returning to full time studies in 2010 at the Royal Northern College of Music where she studied with David Maxwell Anderson and Barbara Robotham. She completed her postgraduate MMus studies at the Royal Northern College of Music in 2012 and she now studies with Dramatic Soprano Jane Irwin.

Prior to her studies at the RNCM Helen performed the following operatic roles: Carmen (Carmen, Mercedes), Samson & Delilah (Delilah cover) and Orpheus in the Underworld (Diana), Dido & Aeneas (2nd Witch), La Traviata (Flora), Trovatore (Azucena) and Jenufa (Grandmother Buryja). At the RNCM Helen played (Mrs Grose) in Turn of the Screw, (Bradamante) in Alcina and (La Natura) in La Callisto in staged opera excerpts, Cinderella's Stepmother (and cellist) in a singer/musician production of Sondheim's Into the Woods, the roles of; (the Baroness) in the college's full production of Barber's Vanessa and (Florence Pike) in Albert Herring and (Arsamenes) in Xerxes. Since leaving the RNCM in 2012 Helen has gone on to play (the Witch) in Hansel & Gretel for Clonter opera, a role that she went on to cover for Garsington Opera 2013. Helen returned to Garsington in 2014 making her principle debut there as (Pi Pasek) in their critically acclaimed production of A Cunning Little Vixen and she revived her role as (the Witch) in Hansel & Gretel when Garsington took their 2013 production to the West Green Opera Festival in Jul 2014. Helen received coaching on this role from Dame Ann Murray.

Last year Helen has sang the role of Kate Pinkerton and covered the role of Suzuki in Madame Butterfly on tour with Heritage Opera, and she sang Carmen in concert and played Azucena in il Trovatore for Opera Seria. This year she will be playing Donna Elvira for Opera Seria's tour of Don Giovanni, and singing the role of Emilia in Otello in concert.

Helen is also much in demand as a concert soloist and has even performed as a pre-match singer at Rugby Super League Matches in front of crowds of up to 17,000 fans. Recent concert appearances include: Alto Soloist in Rossini's Petite Messe Solonelle with Bradford Festival Choral Society and soloist in Elgar's Music Makers at Haslemere Hall in Surrey and for Kington Choral Society, and The Angel in Elgar's Dream of Gerontius for the St George's Singers with Stockport Symphony Orchestra at Gorton Monastery.
