Laurie Ashworth is a soprano singer who trained at the Royal Northern College of Music, graduating with first class honors in 2006 and the RNCM Gold Medal, the college’s highest accolade for performance. She gained a Masters in Vocal Performance at the Royal College of Music, graduating with distinction in 2008.
2010 saw Ashworth winning the Song Prize at the Kathleen Ferrier Awards for her acclaimed performance of Jonathan Dove’s song Full Fathom Five. This same year she was a finalist in BBC Radio 2’s The Kiri Prize, a nationwide competition to find a new operatic star. This led to multiple appearances on the show Friday Night is Music Night. Operatic roles have included Lucy in Menotti’s The Telephone (for Wexford Festival Opera), Serpetta in La Finta Giardiniera (for Ticino Musica in Switzerland), Barbarina in Le Nozze Di Figaro (for Opera Project), first witch in Dido and Aeneas (for Opéra de Dijon), and Spirit in Dido and Aeneas (for Grange Park Opera).
An experienced recitalist, Ashworth has performed at many of the UK’s major venues and in 2012 made her BBC Proms debut. Her future engagements include performing Bob Chilcott’s Requim in Hong Kong, and Handel’s Messiah at Well’s Cathedral.Read Less
