In September 2022 she will be continuing her studies at RCS at the Alexander Gibson Opera School.  Charlotte graduated from the University of Bristol in 2018 with a BA(Hons) in Music, and is a lover of both solo and choral singing, with experience in both fields. 
 
As a scholar at the Junior Royal Academy of Music, she took part in scenes from Pirates of Penzance as Kate, and Eugene Onegin as Larina. With Bristol University, she has performed the roles of Mrs Grose (Turn of the Screw), The Duchess of Plaza-Toro (The Gondoliers), and Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), as well as in the choruses of Bernstein’s Candide and Handel’s Acis and Galatea. Other roles include Dorabella (Cosi fan tutte), La Ciesca (Gianni Schicchi) and Lady Victoria Wooton (The Picture of Dorian Gray) with LoveOpera, a company that she co-founded, and alto chorus for London Garden Opera’s production of Iolanthe. During her time at RCS, Charlotte has completed a role study of Zerlina (Don Giovanni), and performed scenes in the roles of Despina (Cosi fan tutte) and Mercédès (Carmen).
 
Charlotte enjoys directing, having co-directed Cosi fan Tutte with LoveOpera, and taken the helm of BOpS’s HMS Pinafore.
 
Furthermore, she has sung solos in choral works such as Mozart’s Requiem, Haydn’s Nelson Mass, Bach’s Magnificat and Handel’s Messiah, and has performed professionally with St Martin's Voices. For the 2019-20 academic year, she held alto choral scholarships at St-Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square and Sloane Square Choral Society.
