Leilani is a 23 year old mezzo soprano from Northamptonshire studying at The Royal College of Music under vocal professor Sally Burgess and vocal coach John Blakely. She graduated in 2015 with a First Class Honours Degree in Music from Royal Holloway College where she was a choral scholar for three years and was awarded the Dame Felicity Lott Bursary. In March 2016, she won First Prize in The Courtney Kenny Award Competition and was commended for her “appealingly rich sound” and “well chosen and heart-wrenching” programme of English Song. Most recently, she was described as “highly musical and intelligent” when awarded a Commendation in the RCM Lieder Competition, adjudicated by tenor Nicky Spence.

A skilled concert performer, Leilani has performed many recitals both professionally and to raise money for her postgraduate studies. Recent performances include Berlioz Les Nuits d’été in a recital of French song and Schumann Frauenliebe und leben in a lunchtime recital at Peterborough Cathedral. Her solo repertoire with choral societies includes Handel Dixit Dominus, Duruflé Requiem, Tarik O’Regan Triptych, Bach St John Passion, Schubert Magnificat, Haydn Missa Sancti Nicolai, Bach Magnificat, Vaughan Williams Dona Nobis Pacem, Fauré Requiem, Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle, Vivaldi Gloria, Handel Messiah and Mozart Coronation Mass. Other solo performances of note include Rautavaara Vespers: Vigilia with The Choir of Royal Holloway (solos and chorus), Arvo Pärt Passio (Evangelist Quartet) with The Façade Ensemble and a solo appearance on BBC One broadcast live on Christmas Day 2017 from All Saints Church, Fulham!

Leilani sings with Opera Holland Park Chorus and has recently covered the role of Hänsel in Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel with Midsummer Opera. She returned to the company in November to sing the role of Nora in Vaughan Williams Riders to the Sea at St John’s Waterloo. In February Leilani performed the role of Rosina in Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia in RCM Opera Scenes.
