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.
