Hope is a London-based Soprano, known for her rich, shimmering tones and her sophisticated recital programming. She is a communicative, sensitive and innovative artist working across the Operatic, Oratorio and Concert platforms. She frequently gives themed recitals that specialise in narratives and storytelling, often including elements of poetry and spoken word, through which she looks to create a moving and powerful experience for her audiences.

From an early age she developed an interest in Theatre; exploring aspects of and performing in both acting and directing roles in Contemporary Theatre and Shakespeare productions. Her time spent in Arizona nurtured an innate love of American Repertoire, both of which have followed her into her career.

From the age of seventeen, Hope was taught and mentored by Anthea Parashchak. In 2018, she obtained a First Class Honours Bachelor's Degree from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. She is also an Almuna of the Royal Northern College of Music.

Hope is currently studying for her Master of Arts at the Royal Academy of Music, where she is the recipient of the Parepa-Rose Prize and studies with Richard Berkeley-Steele and Chad Vindin. She recently performed the role of Fiordiligi in Mozart’s “Cosi fan tutte” as part of the Royal Academy’s Autumn Opera Scenes and will be performing the role of The Jay in Royal Academy Opera’s Summer Production of Janáček’s “The Cunning Little Vixen.”

During her time at Trinity Laban, Hope participated in Masterclasses with Rita Susovsky and Gidon Saks, and performed in both a Concert and Masterclass with David Gowland and the Royal Opera House Jette Parker Young Artists. She was also the winner of the 2018 Lillian Ash French Song Competition, awarded by Roger Vignoles, and was announced as a finalist in the 2018 Elizabeth Schumann Lieder Competition, both with collaborative pianist Claire Habbershaw. Hope and Claire were delighted to take part in celebrations for the launch of Trinity Laban's "Venus Blazing", a celebration of female composers, by recording 'Anne Boleyn' from Libby Larsen's Song Cycle: 'Try Me, Good King” for the Venus Blazing website and media following. She also performed the role of “Female Chorus” in Benjamin Britten’s “The Rape of Lucretia” for Trinity Laban Opera.

Other credits include: Cover Despina/Chorus in “Cosi fan tutte” for Opéra de Baugé, where she was also a recipient of the Gil Rodriguez Scholarship for outstanding contribution to the 2015 Operatic Season, Cover Galatea/Chorus in “Acis and Galatea” for Hurn Court Opera, Laurie in “The Tender Land” and Wife of Chao/Soprano Actor in “A Night At The Chinese Opera”, both as part of Trinity Laban’s Opera Scenes.

As a soloist, Hope has sung Mozart's and Fauré's "Requiem"s, both with the Corsley Festival Orchestra, as well as Vivaldi's "Gloria," and recently performed the soprano solo at the world premiere of Paul Carr's "Gloria" with the English Arts Chorale. Hope is delighted to be returning to Reigate with the EAC in April 2019 to perform the Soprano Solo in Handel's "Messiah."

Alongside her opera work, Hope specialises in the performance of themed recitals. Her 20th Century American Existentialism programme was awarded Second Prize at the final of the 2017 Courtney Kenny Award, given by the Association of English Singers and Speakers, and received glowing feedback from the judges.
