Anna Livermore, soprano

Anna Livermore is in her final year of a BMus degree course at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama under teacher Theresa Goble. While at Guildhall she has represented the school in competition for the prestigious Kathleen Ferrier Junior Bursary and performed several times in the Barbican hall.

Anna is a regular soloist with choral societies and has organised several concerts of her own: she raised over £300 for Cancer Research UK last July with fellow Guildhall soprano, Nazan Fikret. Anna first discovered her love for performing opera after making her debut in the role of Barbarina in Opera Brava’s production of The Marriage of Figaro in 2006. Since then she has appeared as the soprano soloist at the Save the Children Opera Gala in West End, Esher and has performed in scenes from Strauss’s Arabella and Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte as part of Guildhall’s opera ensemble. At Guildhall she has been selected for Masterclasses with Susan McCulloch, Yvonne Kenny, Graham Johnson and Catherine Wyn Rogers.

The highlight of Anna’s performing career so far was performing in Lads in their Hundreds, a dramatised song project directed by Iain Burnside, which led to her singing live on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune programme in 2009. She looks forward to the revival later this year.

Other performing highlights of 2010 include scenes from Beethoven’s Fidelio and a recital of Liszt songs, coordinated by Iain Burnside. Anna is grateful for Guildhall's generous bursary which will enable her to embark on her post-graduate studies later this year.
