11th July: FestivALL (Royal College of Music)
Catherine has programmed a recital of music by female composers for this new festival celebrating diversity. Performed with tenor Harry Grigg, the recital will feature songs by Nadia Boulanger, Cécile Chaminade and Muriel Herbert, as well as two new commissions by Rebecca Nisco and Jasmine Morris.
Date TBC: Cendrillon (Viardot)
Alongside fellow young singers, Catherine will be creating and performing a travelling production of Cendrillon by Pauline Viardot.
Catherine performed Kirschblütenlieder, Egon Wellesz's German settings of Japanese cherry blossom poems. This concert was streamed online as part of the Music Migration and Mobility research project at the Royal College of Music, in association with the Austrian Cultural Forum.
Messiah (Random Opera Company)
Random Opera's virtual version of this Christmas favourite featured a range of young performers and was recorded entirely remotely. Catherine performed various solos, including the popular Rejoice greatly, o daughter of Zion.
Recitals (Royal College of Music)
Catherine performed in two concerts as part of RCM's Black History Month concert series in November. First, a recital of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's Sorrow Songs, which are settings of poems by Christina Rosetti. Second, Catherine sang some of her favourite songs by black female composers, including Errollyn Wallen, Florence Price and Undine Smith Moore.
