Guest House Opera is pleased to announce that young soprano, Frances Denney is joining the group’s vocal quartet.
Frances, 21, will help premiere in-house composer Christopher Wood’s new set of sea songs in the 2013 Imagine Festival of the Arts in All Saints Church, Carshalton, on Saturday 5 October.
Originally from Oakham in Rutland, Frances has been part of the Stamford Shakespeare Company – an open air theatre company in Lincolnshire – and has attended RADA summer schools for contemporary text. Frances is well versed in music theatre, having been part of Youth Music Theatre UK and often performs music theatre songs in her solo repertoire. ‘I’d love to end up in serious opera in fifteen years’ time and more recently my training has focused on working my way through appropriate opera pieces for my age,’ she says. ‘So, Mozart and Handel so far – I’m waiting eagerly to do the big romantic stuff!’
