Described as ‘Outstanding’ (The Times), ‘Ravishing’ (Time Out) and ‘Alarmingly talented’ (Fourthwall Magazine), soprano Daisy Brown (soprano) is a young opera singer recently graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
Recent achievements include critically acclaimed performances of Pamina (The Magic Flute, Mozart) at the Riverside Studios in London, Daniel (Susanna, Handel) for Iford Arts and Cis (Albert Herring, Britten) for the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme.
During 2013 Daisy has made her debut as Emmie (Albert Herring) for Mid Wales Opera and Flora (The Turn of the Screw, Britten) for Bath Philharmonia Orchestra and the Cooper Hall Emerging Artist Programme. In 2014 Daisy will lead the Merry Opera Company in an exciting new project, Kiss me, Figaro! a composite piece featuring music by Donizetti, Handel, Mozart and Brahms, written and directed by John Ramster.
Daisy’s solo concert and oratorio engagements next year include Requiem for an Angel (Paul Carr) and Missa Brevis in B flat (Mozart) for the Leith Hill Musical Festival; Requiem (Fauré) and Coronation Mass (Mozart) for Sutton Valance Choral Society, and Requiem and Solemn Vespers (Mozart) at Ely Cathedral.
During her studies at Trinity Laban, Daisy was awarded the Eva Malpass Scholarship and the City Livery Club Music Section prize. Most recently she was a finalist at the Thelma King awards, a semi-finalist at the Hampshire and Handel Festival Singing Competitions and ‘highly commended’ by the Boise Foundation Award.
Daisy is delighted to be appearing with Concerts from Scratch at the Royal Albert Hall for the second time this year and would like to thank her teacher Rosa Mannion, The Richard Stapley Trust and Mrs Pat Baxter as well as Trinity Laban and the Eva Malpass Scholarship for their past and continuing support.
