Nurturing a New Generation of Singers
Charity Number: 1076508

Our Singers

Since 1990, The Mastersingers charity has worked closely with the UK’s leading opera houses providing them with top level Wagnerian singers and vital support. We are a charity that relies solely on the generosity of private benefactors to train and develop potential talent into world class performers.

Singers currently receiving direct coaching/financial support include:

Stuart Pendred

Paul Carey Jones

Jonathan Stoughton

Donald Thomson

Edward Hughes

Erika Madi Jones

Lee Bisset

Katie Lowe

Kirstin Sharpin

 

Other young singers receive indirect support by way of showcase events, such as being cast or as covers in the Rehearsal Orchestra day, in lecture-recitals, masterclasses and by our recommending them to opera houses and event organisers.

 

Here follows a small selection of the singers whom we have placed with individual opera houses.
