2nd Anniversary


It has been two years since I first decided to start my blog and record the experiences and opportunities that I would face as a student here at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. So here I am 230 posts later and to everyone that has joined me here, supported my endeavours, shared in my experiences and provided invaluable advice I just want to say thank you.

I just love this time of year as all the rehearsals are coming to fruition and the performance dates are just around the corner.
On the 17th April at 7:30 pm I will be taking part with my fellow students at the RCS in our chamber choir, conducted again this year by Frikki Walker at St Mary’s Cathedral, Glasgow.

The following day I am very excited that my family and friends will be traveling to Glasgow to see me take part in the Scottish Opera Connect production of Jonathan Dove’s opera “The Walk From The Garden”. This will be my first lead role playing Eve alongside a fellow student from the RCS, Glen Cunningham who will be performing the role of Adam. The dates of the performances are 18th April 3:30 pm and 7:00 pm and 19th April at 3:30 pm. This opera is part of a double bill, the second production is “Dr Ferret’s Bad Medicine Roadshow” which was inspired by “The Cautionary Tales” by Hilaire Belloc.


As a member of Les Sirenes Female Chamber choir we have been working on Mendelssohn’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” for a performance with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra on Thursday 14th May at the City Halls Glasgow.

Then as the end of the academic year draws to a close I will be performing as a member of the chorus in the RCS production of Vaughan Williams’s opera “Sir John In Love”. With shows on the 9th, 11th, 13th and 15th May starting at 7:15 pm.

      1. I’ve been studying and working most of the break, but it’s lovely being looked after this weekend, no cooking, shopping for food, great family time and several compulsory walks while the suns shining 😊.
        Best wishes

  1.

  2. Congratulations on the 2nd anniversary. You’re like my daughters, busy, busy, busy. Continued success in your studies.

    Have a good weekend.

  3. Hi Charlotte, all the best for your upcoming performances, the cake looked good, I listened to your singing of Song to the night from Rusalka by Dvorak, which I have seen at the Colosseum in London, by English Opera, and from the Met in HD with Rene Flemming as Rusalka. I have not heard of this composer or the Opera, but will Google it, to see if I can listen to some of it. I love contemporary music and Opera( and have been to quite a few premiers) and have written three libretto’s which are looking for composers to set them to music. Your voice if really great, so I’m sure those that go to these events are in for a great time. Best wishes and blessings, Charles.

    1. Thank you very much Charles for listening and for your message 😊. I’ve got a lot to learn and I’ve really worked hard on this Eve score so I hope I do it justice this weekend, i really love the music. Working with Glen and the cast from the connect company has been wonderful.
      Best wishes

  4. Thanks, will cross fingers for you to do a great job, also read the interview with the dancer, I also follow dance both classic and contemporary, and I also do Pilates once a week, very good for posture and using the body correctly. Best of luck Charles.
