Training and Early Career
Classically trained soprano, Lucy van Gasse, began singing in her teens and played the lead role of 'Dido' in Dido & Aeneas at the prestigious St George's venue in Bristol when she was 17. She went on to study at Cardiff University where she gained a Bachelor of Music degree. After graduating and receiving the Sir Geraint Evans Award for Outstanding Performance, Lucy performed the role of Hebé in Bristol Opera's production of Les Indes Galantes again at St George's, Bristol.
In 2005 Lucy decided to further her study by enrolling in a Post-Graduate Diploma at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where she followed the Opera Pathway course under the direction of Donald Maxwell. Here she studied many different operatic roles and was entrusted with the lead role of 'Cendrillon' in Massenet's opera by the same name for her final assessed performance at the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff.
During her studies, Lucy also performed with the BBC National Chorus of Wales and the London Philharmonic Choir in venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, St David's Hall, Patronus Twin Towers (Kuala Lumpur) and the Perth Concert Hall (Australia).
After her post-graduate study Lucy joined the internationally acclaimed opera band Amici Forever and toured to Moscow, Kiev, Odessa, Antwerp and various venues in the UK.
Lucy continues to perform as a soloist and at classical crossover events with Amici Forever.
