Anna Gregg - Biography
A recent winner of the Plunket-Greene cup, Feis Ceoil, 2021, Anna is a soprano, graduated with a BMus(Hons) degree from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where she is delighted to be continuing her studies, under the tutelage of Sarah Pring, on the Artist Master’s course. During her time at Guildhall, Anna has been privileged to have guidance from Alisdair Hogarth, Sarah Walker CBE, Jonathan Lemalu, and Liz Marcus. This year, her studies are generously supported by the Mario Lanza Educational Foundation.
Anna’s primary musical training began at home in Belfast, where she won the Philip H. Hinds Cup and Mrs Hugh Murphy Award for voice. She has since been very fortunate to have performed in the Barbican, the Royal Albert Hall, Milton Court Concert Hall and Theatre, Basilique Cathédrale de Saint-Denis (Paris), St Anne's Cathedral, among other venues in the UK.
Having an interest in contemporary music, Anna recently performed as the soloist in the premiere of Matt Geer’s chamber opera ‘With Mixed Effects’. She was thrilled to bring the role of Amy Hitler to life in the debut of another of his contemporary operas, ‘Sane and Sound’. She has also enjoyed playing more traditional operatic roles, such as Cherubino in a GSMD production of Le Nozze di Figaro.
Orchestral concert successes include: the London Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert production of ‘Guys and Dolls’, with West Green Opera; the London Philharmonia, Schoenberg’s Gurrelieder, conducted by Esa-Pekka, as part of the Festival de Saint Denis in Paris; and Orchestra Rheia’s debut performance of Ein Deitches Requiem by Brahms, conducted by Stephanie Childress.
