Contralto in Paris: Art song, oratorio, opera, special events

Updated: Apr 19



Welcome!


Are you seeking a lower-voiced opera singer/classical singer for your production or event, in France or beyond? I am a contralto singer from New Zealand, now based in Paris. In my home country of New Zealand, I completed a Master of Music in Classical Singing at the University of Auckland and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Theatre Studies at the University of Waikato. I have experience singing opera, oratorio, art song, musical theatre/jazz/pop, contemporary classical, folk and traditional songs, songs for special events (such as Christmas parties) and more!



I have a particular passion for art song. As a poet myself, I greatly enjoy singing some of the great poetic texts, set to music by masterful composers such as Schubert, Debussy, and Britten. These songs can be selected to suit a particular topic or occasion, or presented in the context of a recital. Generally, these works are performed with piano accompaniment. However, I also perform art song/vocal chamber music repertoire with other instruments and groupings.



Prior to 2022, I was singing as a mezzo-soprano; my operatic repertoire history reflects this. My aria and role lists are being refreshed to suit my new Fach (voice type). As a contralto, oratorio repertoire is a specialty (fortunately, I already sang many of the great contralto oratorio roles, such as Handel’s Messiah, Vivaldi’s Gloria, and plenty of Bach). I also perform and premiere more recent works, including by living composers.


Interested in working with me for your event? Please contact me with details of:

  • Location

  • Organisation/group hiring

  • Repertoire/materials required

  • Duration of rehearsals and performances (dates and times)

  • Proposed fee if pre-arranged (or I will provide a quote)

  • Any other known details




From 2024, myself and pianist Mirei Tsuji are collaborating as a duo for diverse events and services. You can check out our dedicated site page (in French) here:
