Robert Haylett obtained his undergraduate Music degree at Girton College, University of Cambridge, in 2014. During his study period he sang as a choral scholar under the directorship of Nicholas Mulroy, as a member of and soloist with the University Chamber Choir (performing work from Beethoven 'Missa Solemnis', to Stravinsky 'Les Noces', under conductors such as Sir Roger Norrington and Tim Brown), as a recitalist, and as a soloist with Cambridge University Opera Society. Since then he has accepted the position of Bass Lay Clerk at Peterborough Cathedral, where he has established himself as a performer and teacher.
Previous roles include The Traveller ('Curlew River', Benjamin Britten), Doctor P ('The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat', Michael Nyman), and, in concert/scenes performances, Orféo (Monteverdi), Don Giovanni and Count Almaviva. A devotee of new and contemporary music, he has given the World Premiere of Rhiannon Randle's 'Temptations' (playing Israelite Father) and her 'Kalthertzige' (cycle for baritone and strings), David Earl's 'Strange Ghost' (singing the roles of Dudley Ward and Frederick Kelly as well as substantial chorus work), and Louis D'Heudieres' 'various interpretations of utopian music''; UK premieres include Jeremy Thurlow's 'Over The Frost' (consort and solo performance with chamber ensemble) and Brahms' arrangement of JS Bach's Cantata BWV 21 for strings. In recital Robert has performed works by composers that include Eisler, Debussy, Barber, Fauré, Poulenc, Brahms, Britten, Schubert, Beethoven and Gurney.
Future engagements include performances of songs by Nadia Boulanger as part of the London-based women's music collective 'Scordatura', and training at AIMS Summer School.
