Charlotte will be giving the second in our Autumn series of Lunchtime Recitals, on 13th September

Charlotte Newstead

Charlotte Newstead's early musical training was in her home county of Suffolk, where she studied piano and singing and explored the world of choral music. She went on to read music at the University of Bristol, graduating with a Masters Degree with distinction.

She maintains a busy and varied concert schedule, covering a wide range of genres including all the major oratorio works from composers such as JSBach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Brahms, Dvorak, Gounod, Elgar, Orff, Tippett and Karl Jenkins.

She is actively involved in promoting and performing new works by living composers including David Bednall, Raymond Warren, Geoff Poole, Jonathan Bielby, Jolyon Laycock and Lyn Lloyd-Jones and has recently given the world-premiere performance, in Brussels, of Alan Charlton's new song cycle, The Cloud.

Charlotte has appeared as a soloist with orchestras around the UK performing such works as Strauss's Four Last Songs, Mozart's Concert Arias and Villa Lobos's Bachianas Brasilieras.

As a soloist she has shared concert platforms with many eminent musicians including James Bowman and James Gilchrist and has performed live on Classic FM. She has sung in venues throughout the country from St John's Smith Square, Snape Maltings, St Martin in the Fields, St George's Brandon Hill and Dorchester Abbey to Salisbury Cathedral, Bath Abbey and Petersfield Festival Hall.

Charlotte has a busy teaching practice for students at all stages of the singing journey, from beginners to professional musicians and runs a number of evening classes in Music Theory and Music Appreciation.
