BIOGRAPHY

 

 

Shropshire Soprano Holly Teague is currently based in Birmingham where she studies with Amanda Roocroft. A versatile performer, her enthusiasm for music has encouraged her to explore a vast range of repertoire and style, leading to performances all over the UK and Europe. 

In March 2020, Holly collaborates with pianist Jonathan French to release her first album titled, "SONGS FROM A SHROPSHIRE LASS," a personal project exploring various musical settings of the AE Housman Shropshire-inspired collection, "A Shropshire Lad." 

Current projects include an early renaissance lute song programme with Myles Payne which will tour for a second year this summer, and a recital exploring the works of W.H. Auden by Britten, Barber and Stravinsky. In September, Holly will join Cumbria Festival Opera for their first performances of Mozart's "Cosi Fan Tutte" and Barber's "A Hand of Bridge".

Holly is currently completing her final year of study at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, where she won the 2019 RBC Singing Prize, the inter-departmental 2019 Doris Newon Music Club Award and the Cecil Drew Oratorio Prize. In June 2019, she was awarded a place at CNSMD (Conservatoire de Paris), where she studied with Elene Golgevit and Anne le Bozec for six months.

"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."
