Clare Lloyd-Griffiths - Soprano. Raised in nearby Sydenham, soprano Clare Lloyd-Griffiths read music and was a choral scholar at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. Upon graduation she continued her studies at the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal Welsh College of Music as a Sir Geraint Evans Scholar. Her operatic roles have included Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro and Adele in Die Fledermaus at the Weston Studio, Welsh Millennium Centre, Madame Herz in Der Schauspieldirektor and Tonina in Salieri’s Prima la musica, poi le parole at the Notte Bianca Festival in Valletta, and the Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte for Shadwell Opera. Concert performances have included Merab in Handel’s Saul for the Spitalfields Festival directed by Laurence Cummings, Mozart’s Exsultate jubilate at St. John’s, Smith Square and the Spirit of Avon in Thomas Linley Jr’s Shakespeare Ode for Bampton Court Opera, also at St. John’s, Smith Square. A member of the innovative ensemble Solomon’s Knot who perform without scores or conductor, Clare has recently sung in a widely acclaimed Bach B minor Mass for the Spitalfields Festival, a debut at the Leipzig Bachfest and further performances of Linley’s Shakespeare Ode (again taking the role of the Spirit of Avon) at the Berne Kultur Casino and the Tage Alter Musik Festival in Regensburg. On Sundays Clare can be found at the Brompton Oratory where she is a member of the renowned choir. Her lively two-year-old son occupies her remaining waking hours.
