Charlotte-Anne read Music at Oxford University, where she held a choral scholarship. Despite applying as an instrumentalist (piano & clarinet), during her three years as an undergraduate she became heavily involved in the choral scene and soon became sought-after as a soprano soloist with all the major university choirs.
Her concert performances have included Britten’s Les Illuminations, Mozart’s Exultate Jubilate, Coronation Mass, Great Mass in C and Solemn Vespers, Handel’s Dixit Dominus, Messiah, & Alexander’s Feast, Vivaldi’s Laudate Pueri and Gloria, Bruckner’s Te Deum, Haydn’s Nelson Mass, Bach’s St John’s Passion, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, Strauss’ Four Last Songs, Vaughan-Williams’ Serenade to Music, and Mahler’s 8th Symphony.
Charlotte studied at the Rome Opera Studio for two years, where she worked with Italian soprano Renata Scotto. In 2013 she was a finalist in the Montserrat Caballe International Competition, and was subsequently invited to masterclasses with Montserrat Caballé at the Liceu in Barcelona. Over the past few years, Charlotte has won numerous prizes in international competitions, such as the Concorso Internationale Zandonai (Riva del Garda), La Fenice Versilia (Lucca), Concorso Spazio Musica (Orvieto), Concorso Umberto Giordano (Foggia), Concorso Benvenuto Franci (Pienza) and Concorso Salvatore Licitra (Milano).
Her operatic repertoire includes Mimi (La Boheme), Leonora (Il Trovatore), Donna Anna (Don Giovanni), Ellen Orford (Peter Grimes), Micaela (Carmen), Contessa (la Nozze de Figaro) Liu (Turandot), Desdemona (Otello, Pamina (Die Zauberflute), Suor Angelica (Il Trittico) and Tosca (Tosca). She has had the pleasure of working with Bruno Aprea, Andrew Parrott, Bob Chilcott, Justin Lavender and John Rutter, and participating in Masterclasses with Emma Kirkby, Ian Partridge, Nicholas Clapton & Italian Tenor Luca Canonici.
She has studied under Nicholas Powell, Janice Chapman, and Italian Soprano Stefania Magnifico.
