Petworth Festival: Lotte Betts-Dean (mezzo-soprano) and Dimitris Soukaras (guitar) – Travels with a Guitar

The festival is delighted to work once again with artists supported by the Worshipful Company of Musicians. Australian mezzo-soprano Lotte Betts-Dean is a singer on a very fast upward trajectory. A versatile and dynamic concert artist, her performance experience encompasses opera, oratorio, contemporary music, art song recital/chamber music, early music and nonclassical collaborations. 

With a host of prizes and artistic associations to her name, Lotte won the 2019 Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform and is a bursar with the Imogen Cooper Music Trust. She became a Yeoman of the Worshipful Company of Musicians in 2019 after winning the inaugural New Elizabethan Award. She is joined by fellow Yeoman, guitarist Dimitris Soukaras. Born in Corinth in 1995 Dimitris is a Masters student at the Royal Academy of Music and has received distinctions in 12 international/national competitions.
