ABOUT

Kentish Mezzo Soprano Chloë Treharne is a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and holds both MMus and BMus (Hons) First Class degrees from the institution. Prior to the Guildhall School, Chloë studied at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester, where she was awarded the T.E. Drane Award for Vocal Music.

 

Chloë’s “richly upholstered mezzo soprano voice” is well suited to zwischenfach repertoire, and she is particularly fond of singing Rossini. She was a Christine Collins Young Artist at Opera Holland Park for their 2014 season and performed the role of Rosina Il Barbiere di Siviglia in full for the Young Artist Performance. She is currently covering the role of Tisbe La Cenerentola for Scottish Opera.

 

Chloë participated in the inaugural year of the Fontainebleau Opera Festival run by Dominic Wheeler and Kelly Robinson, performing the roles Dorabella Cosi fan tutte, Mélisande Pelléas et Mélisande, Zerlina Don Giovanni, title role Cendrillon and Annio La Clemenza di Tito in scenes. In Guildhall School Scenes, she has sung the roles of Charlotte Werther, title role Orlando, Mrs Herring Albert Herring, 3rd Lady Die Zauberflöte and Marcellina Le Nozze di Figaro. She also appeared in the European premiere of Ned Rorem’s Our Town.

 

As a keen recitalist, Chloë won the first prize in the 2013 English Song Award and was a finalist in both the Maureen Lehane Vocal Award at the Wigmore Hall and the Susan Longfield Award for Sopranos and Mezzos. During her time at the Guildhall School, she was a member of the Song Guild (directed by Graham Johnson) and participated in song festivals including Eugene Asti’s “Rediscovering Mendelssohn”, and Graham Johnson’s “Schubert and the British Poets” and Poulenc Festival. She has appeared in recitals on the stages of the Wigmore Hall, Barbican Hall, St. John’s Smith Square, LSO St. Luke’s, Charlton House, and, more unusually, the British Museum, the Courtauld Gallery and Barbican Conservatory.

 

In masterclasses, Chloë worked with internationally renowned artists such as Ann Murray at the Wigmore Hall and Sarah Connolly at LSO St Lukes (who later described Chloë as “exciting new talent” on Twitter). She is also an alumna of the Franz-Schubert-Institut in Baden-bei-Wien, where she worked with pianist Manon Fischer-Dieskau studying German Lieder repertoire with masters including Elly Ameling, Helmut Deutsch, Robert Holl, Julius Drake, Adreas Schmidt, Roger Vignoles, Tobias Truniger, and Rudolf Jansen.

 

Chloë made her Barbican Hall concert debut singing the alto solos in Stravinsky’s Mass accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Valery Gergiev for his critically acclaimed Stravinsky Festival, and was described by the Guardian as “most impressive”. She is a regular oratorio soloist for Brentwood Cathedral and choral societies in London, Kent and Essex. Her oratorio repertoire includes: Handel Messiah, Haydn Paukenmesse, Vivaldi Gloria, Dvorak Stabat Mater, Pergolesi Stabat Mater, Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle, Lizst Psalm 137, Mozart Requiem, Tippett Five Negro Spirituals and Vaughan Williams Serenade to Music. In a twist on conventional oratorio work, Chloë appeared in Jonathan Miller’s critically acclaimed staged production of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion at the Royal National Theatre in London, under the musical direction of Paul Goodwin.
