Camilla Jeppeson (Soprano) and Mary Reid (Harp)

– Andrew Beale, Managing Director

Mary performs as a soloist, orchestral musician, chamber artist and for community musical outreach work. She has given solo recitals at Ripon Cathedral, for the Brantwood Young Artist Series and at the 11th Russian Harp Festival in Moscow. Other recent highlights include performing for the Ring Cycle at the Royal Opera House in 2018, at the Oxford Lieder Festival and at the Gibraltar International Music Festival.

Camilla initially studied as a pianist before training as a singer. After completing the Associated Studios Opera Course in London, she began studies with world-renowned bass Graeme Danby. Most recently, Camilla made her Italian debut as Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi, and her house debut at the Teatro del Giglio, Lucca. Operatic roles have included Blonde (Die Entführung aus den Serail), La Sagesse/Lucinde as part of the Grimeborn Festival at the Arcola Theatre and Zerlina (Don Giovanni), which Camilla received critical acclaim for; “her Batti, batti was a highlight of Act 1”.

Other engagements have included performances at the Royal Greenwich International Early Music Festival, an appearance with the Rameau Academy accompanied by Rob Howarth, Cadogan Hall and The Ritz.
