Lucy grew up in the North Yorkshire village of Great Ayton where she began her singing career in the Christ Church
children's choir Throstle Nest. At age 7 she progressed to the Church Choir where she sang until leaving school.
Lucy was taught by Zuilmah Hopkins and won many local awards and prizes including a scholarship from Hambleton District
Council for promising young musicians.
Lucy went on to study at Leeds College of Music completing an MMUS in 2006. She sang as a soloist for many of the college
ensembles her favourite being The New Music Ensemble directed by Graham Hearn. With them she performed works by Morton Feldman,
John Cage, Arvo Part, Louis Andriessen, John Woolrich and Igor Stravinsky amongst others. From this grew a passion for performing
contemporary music culminating in a performance of Maxwell Davies' Miss Donnithorne's Maggot for her final recital.
Lucy has performed countless operatic roles on the local and national stage. She has worked professionally for Scottish Opera and
has sung at the Buxton International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival for the last five years. Lucy is particularly fond of performing
G&S roles with her most recent being Little Buttercup (HMS Pinafore). Her other operatic roles include Dido (Dido & Aeneas), Madam
Flora (The Medium), Mrs Lovett (Sweeney Todd), Second Lady (The Magic Flute), Meg Page (The Merry Wives of Windsor) and Arnalta
(The Coronation of Poppea).
Lucy has continued her love of singing sacred choral music throughout her life. She is currently principal alto for The St Peter's
Singers directed by Dr Simon Lindley and sings with the new up and coming chamber choir Ecclesia. Lucy sings regularly for many choral
societies in Yorkshire and beyond. Recent performances have included Stabat Mater (Rossini & Dvorak) and Israel in Egypt (Handel) at
Leeds Town Hall. Future engagements include Durufle Requiem and Bach St Matthew Passion.
Away from performing Lucy conducts the Choir of St Aidan's Church in Leeds and teaches singing in schools throughout Yorkshire.
