Rachel is a soprano who's vocal repertoire varies from medieval sacred and secular song, to contemporary art song, having premiered and recorded a number of new works. Having recently completed the Opera School course at Morley College, she has been cast as La Fee, Cendrillon; Sophie, Werther; Gretel, Hansel und Gretel; Zerbinetta, Ariadne aug Naxos; Anna, Die Lustige Weiber; Poppea, L’Incorinazione di Poppea and Despina, Cosi Fan Tutte in the various opera scenes performances during the academic year. Rachel is also co-founder and co-musical director of Wild Street Ensemble, with whom she also performs as a soloist, and founder-conductor of Holborn Community Orchestra. In 2013 she formed a madrigal group which gave regular public performances among which was a well-received program in the Purcell room at the QEH for the PureGold festival. In 2014 she was the soprano soloist for The London, a new work for soprano and string quartet by Will Frampton commissioned by Tap Gallery, Leigh-on-Sea, performed on a fishing boat above the wreckage of the HMS London in the Thames Estuary. In 2015 Rachel was cast as Mustardseed in Opera and the City’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream before performing as understudy to Amor in a 2.5-week run of About Turn Theatre’s production of Gluck’s Orpheus & Eurydice at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that summer. Rachel benefitted from participating in the autumn Women Conductors Workshop with Alice Farnham, for which she was awarded a bursary. The experience inspired her to set up and conduct Holborn Community Orchestra in 2016. Currently, Rachel studies with Anita Morrison developing coloratura repertoire.
