"Buckmaster’s strong vocal was particularly awe inspiring, and supported by his incredible talent for acting.

Joseph Buckmaster is a Lyric Spinto Tenor who has just completed his MA at the Royal Academy of Music under the tutelage of Richard Berkeley-Steele and his vocal coach Iain Ledingham.

Originally from Chester, Joseph began his vocal tuition at the age of 6 in the Chester Cathedral Choir. Singing there as a Chorister for Roger Fisher, Choral Scholar for David Poulter and Lay Clerk for Philip Rushforth he gained training in the great English choral tradition.

Joseph began his training at the RNCM where he developed a deep passion for the Operatic repertoire. He performed in the chorus for several of their operas, including Offenbach’s La Belle Helene, Mozart’s La Clamenza di Tito, Bizet’s Carmen and Barber’s Vanessa. In 2012 he covered the role of Giove in the RNCM's production of Monteverdi’s Il Ritorno d'Ulise in Patria.

He has performed professionally the roles of Tamino in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Ferrando in Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte and covered the roles of and Don Jose in Bizet’s Carmen for Heritage Opera. For Flat Pack Music he has performed the roles of Tamino in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Ferrando in Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte, Rodolfo in Puccini’s La Boheme, and Don Curzio and Basilio in Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro. Whilst at the Royal Academy of Music he has performed the roles of Apollo in Handel’s Semele and Alméric in Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta for Royal Academy Opera. He has also performed in the Opera Holland Park chorus for their 2019 season and the role of Tom in Amy Beach’s Cabildo at the Grimeborn festival.

In 2017 Joseph Co-Founded Flat Pack Music (FPM) an Opera company based in the North West of England. FPM focusses on bringing opera to a wider audience, they perform in English and charge low ticket prices.

Joseph has performed as soloist throughout the country including Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, Handel’s Messiah and Judas Maccabaeus, Mozart’s Requiem, Stainer’s Crucifixion and Rossini’s Petite Messe Sollonele.

He would like to thank everyone who has supported his studies, particularly The Mario Lanza Foundation and the Henry Wood Accommodation Trust.

Outside of music Joseph has held a long interest in Directing. He made his operatic directorial debut with Flat Pack Music’s 5* rated production of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro in 2018.
