She was the winner of the 2017 Essex Young Musician of the Year Competition, as well as the 2016 Freda Parry Scholarship Competition.

Kayleigh is a keen advocate of concert and oratorio repertoire, her recital work having taken her throughout the UK, Europe and Africa. Over the last year Kayleigh has performed an extensive number of vocal recitals, exploring many opera roles, German lied, French melodie, traditional art song and contemporary music. She made her London operatic debut in 2016 as the Fox in Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen (abridged.)

Within Guildhall’s opera scenes she has performed roles such as, Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus, Mother in Hansel und Gretel, and Witch 1 in Dido and Aeneas. Other previous roles include, Maria in The Sound of Music, The Plaintiff Trial by Jury, Constance The Sorcerer, Peep Bo The Mikado and Tessa The Gondoliers, and the title role in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Patience.

In London, Kayleigh has had the opportunity to work with renowned coaches and conductors such as; Daniel Barenboim, Gustav Dudamel, Graham Johnson, Sarah Walker, Edith Wiens, Jane Manning, Eugene Asti and Mary Plazas. She has performed in a number of highly sought after venues, including; Barbican Hall, The Royal Albert Hall, Milton Court, Buxton Opera House, The Royal Festival Hall, The Vatican and St. Mark’s Basilica.

Kayleigh has recently returned from spending the winter season performing at the Thursford Christmas Spectacular, Norfolk. This season, she can be seen performing many recitals over the UK and will be making her debut as Aline in Gilbert and Sullivan’s’ The Sorcerer. She returns to her home town to partake in a special charity concert for the Lord Major and continues to be busy singing with her vocal quartet, The Lakeside Singers.
