Lucy Hole - Soprano

Lucy Hole is in her second year at the University of Aberdeen reading Music and is currently taught by Jean Webster. She is a University of Aberdeen Chapel Choir Scholar and holds the 2012/13 James Lobban Conducting Scholarship for Aberdeen Bach Choir.

Prior to university, Lucy spent a year setting up and running choirs in the Yorkshire Dales. Whilst there, she joined Leeds Youth Opera, playing the role of Annina in Verdi’s La Traviata and Filipevna in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. She also sang for the recording of Gareth Malone’s television feature for Children in Need 2011. In addition Lucy was delighted to have been asked to sing in the chorus of Tannhäuser with the Northern Wagner Orchestra. For the past two years, Lucy has been the soprano soloist for Grassington Festival’s ‘Sing The Messiah’ and looks forward to joining them again this year. Since starting university Lucy has sung with The Gilbert and Sullivan Society in their production of Iolanthe and with the University of Aberdeen Opera Society’s production of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. Last September Lucy was honoured to be asked to sing for HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Phillip on their visit to open The Sir Duncan Rice Library. She sings regularly as part of Chapel Choir, and is looking forward to their tour to Budapest in the summer.

During her time at university Lucy hopes to specialise in early sacred music, which she particularly enjoys studying and performing.
