Isobel Hughes is an Undergraduate at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance ('London's Creative Conservatoire'), which is housed on the Greenwich University Campus. She is studying under the watchful eye of Anne Mason. 'Izzy' will graduate shortly after performing at Simonsbath Festival and we look forward to her sharing some interesting insights on life as an Undergraduate at one of the UK's most prestigious Music Schools. Younger aspiring musicians thinking of studying music (or their parents) may find attendence at this event of interest. Isobel is a high-energy lyric soprano from North London. A Grandaughter of Mary Jones in Dulverton, she began singing with the Finchley Children's Music Group at age seven and has never looked back. Since then, Isobel has performed with many well established choirs such as the Rodulphus Choir and the Bach Choir, however her real passion lies in opera and solo performance. In recent years, Isobel has performed with both the Dorset Opera Festival and the New Generation Festival. This Christmas (2018), she will also be performing as a chorus member in Trinity Laban's production of Thea Musgrave's 'A Christmas Carol' as well as understudying the role of Mrs Cratchit. Isobel's excitable yet unflappable nature gives a fun, easy note to her performance and, while she is a soprano, the warm-mezzo like quality in her voice makes for an enjoyable listen.    

Wine, Tea, Coffee and Ice Creams. A pre-ordered light supper is available in the interval (see booking form).
