"Above all, Holly Teague simply astounded as a Mary Crawford too sophisticated for these country bumpkins. 

Her stage-presence (such lingering eyes!) was mesmerising, her command of the highest of ranges makes her a shoe-in for Mozart and Strauss, and I shall  follow her career with great interest." 
Christopher Morley, Midland Music Review

"Above all, Holly Teague simply astounded as a Mary Crawford too sophisticated for these country bumpkins. Her stage-presence (such lingering eyes!) was mesmerising, her command of the highest of ranges makes her a shoe-in for Mozart and Strauss, and I shall follow her career with great interest."  Christopher Morley, Midland Music Review, 2019

A graduate from The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Soprano Holly Teague completed her first four years of training with Amanda Roocroft and Catherine Benson. She is the recipient of the 2020 St Clare Barfield Rosebowl for Operatic Distinction. She is currently completing her masters at The Royal College of Music where she is a Audrey Sacher Award Holder, and is kindly supported by the Dick Maidment and Peggy Cooper Award (Help Musicians UK) and the Countess of Munster Trust. 

College roles include Mary Crawford (Mansfield Park, Dove), Hanna (Die Lustige Witwe, Lehar) and Ariel (The Enchanted Island, Sams). She is the winner of the 2019 RBC Singing Prize, the 2019 Cecil Drew Oratorio Prize and the inter-departmental 2019 Doris Newton Music Club Award. She came second in the 2019 Edward Brookes English Song Prize and the 2019 Mario Lanza Opera Prize, and was a semi-finalist in the 2019 Bromsgrove International Musician's Competition. In June 2018, she was awarded a place at CNSMD (Conservatoire de Paris), where she studied at the college with Elene Golgevit and Anne le Bozec.

In March 2020, Holly independently released her first album "Songs From A Shropshire Lass" with pianist Jonathan French; a personal project exploring the musical settings of the A.E. Housman Shropshire-inspired collection, "A Shropshire Lad," featuring Vaughan Willams, Butterworth, Somervell and Ireland. 

A versatile musician, Holly's performing experiences range from recitals at her local church in Shropshire, to Westminster Central Hall, where she opened the 2018 British Council Conference. Recent projects include a touring English Lute Song programme with Myles Payne, and a recital exploring the works of W.H. Auden by Britten, Barber and Stravinsky. Passionate about the arts in education, Holly teaches Singing and Drama at Central Stage & Dance Academy in Burton Upon Trent, hosts bespoke workshops for schools, as well as her own one-to-one teaching from home. All future work remains on hold due to the COVID-19 crisis.
