Snape Maltings Concert Hall

I'm so looking forward to singing at Snape Maltings Concert Hall on 23 April - place of my first major musical experiences with Suffolk Youth Orchestra and Suffolk Jubilee Choir, the experiences that inspired me to choose music as a career, but also, the venue for some of the performances that have shaped my career.

Sea Pictures performance for the Elgar Society

October 13, 2021

In a few days time I have the profound honour of singing Elgar's Sea Pictures for a concert celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the London branch of the Elgar Society. And on top that, Dame Janet Baker, whose recording of this piece remains, in my opinion, the peerless interpretation, will be in the audience to receive the Elgar Medal! The concert will be conducted by the current holder of the Elgar Medal and longtime friend, Adrian Brown.

Revisiting 'Joseph' for JAMOnline

March 8, 2021

I'm looking forward to revisiting two arias from Handel's 'Joseph and his Brethren' as part of Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra's Jews and Music Online series. I performed and recorded the title role with the orchestra, conducted by Nicholas McGegan, back in 2017, so I'm delighted to have the opportunity to return to it with fresh eyes and voice! More details to follow shortly.

Release of Stephen Dodgson opera on CD - Margaret Catchpole

February 14, 2021

Recorded in August 2019 at Snape Maltings, this disc celebrating Stephen's Dodgson's Suffolk-themed opera, Margaret Catchpole - Two worlds apart has just been released on the Naxos label. As a Suffolk girl myself, the exploration of this legend has actually enhanced my appreciation of my home county, especially when looking at the Cobbold family's life in Ipswich, where I was born. I play Mrs Cobbold, Margaret's loyal and long-suffering employer. We had a lot of fun working on this project, which I hope can be heard in this debut recording. Click here to visit Amazon.

Making music again

September 27, 2020

Finding a way to continue to perform has been one of the major challenges of the pandemic. I've been working with Daniel Norman of Positive Note films to find a way to bring live musicmaking back into view. I'm excited to announce that my programme, 'A Voice of One's Own' will be premiered on October 30th as part of a series of films featuring international musicians including The Gesualdo Six, the Mitsu Trio and Roderick Williams.

A quiet time - for now

March 30, 2020

What a time this is! Although the performances have stopped for the moment, I'm continuing to prepare music for the future and will be updating my recordings on this site very soon. I'll also be adding some video and interviews so do keep checking in. Please keep safe and well!

As Holofernes, Diana Moore combined military grandeur and suave seductiveness into a superb portrait of a warrior at play on the fields of love.
