Singing at the Edinburgh International Festival

So excited to have had, in a last-minute turn of events, the opportunity to perform a small solo part in “La Damnation de Faust” at the Usher Hall as part of Edinburgh International Festival with Sir Mark Elder, the Hallé Orchestra and the EIF chorus.

It was such a joy to sing amongst the most incredible chorus, joined by a wonderful orchestra and conductor. Very hard not to get too emotional. And the lineup of soloists were the perfect combination of beauty, strength and downright scary!
