Céline was born and raised in Swansea before winning a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, London, where she completed her undergraduate degree. She then returned for the Advanced Diploma on the Royal Academy Opera course, where she continued to study with Julie Kennard and Iain Ledingham. Céline has been selected for master-classes with the late Robert Tear, Susan Bullock, Diane Forlano, Dennis O’Neill, Ann Murray, and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa.
Some of Céline’s opera performances include Mina in Verdi's Aroldo for UCOpera, the title role in Suor Angelica by Puccini, the role of Female Chorus in Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia and Noémie in Cendrillon by Massenet. Céline also covered the role of Jessica in Tchaikowsky's The Merchant of Venice with Welsh National Opera.
Oratorio work is playing an important role in Céline’s musical life and she enjoys performing as guest soloist with many choirs around the UK. Recent Oratorios have included Handel's Messiah, Haydn's Creation and Handel's Judas Maccabaeus. Céline also took part in a concert with the Halle Orchestra singing Mozart Requiem at the Bridgewater Hall.
Classical song is also one of Celine’s passions and she thoroughly enjoyed her time with the prestigious Royal Academy Song Circle, a group described as accomplished performers of art song. She was also honoured to be asked to sing a recital for the British Embassy in Madrid.
Céline successfully won the Welsh Singers Competition at St David’s Hall in 2014, which meant she had the great honour of representing Wales in BBC Cardiff Singer of the World in 2015. Céline was thrilled to have won the Richard Lewis/Jean Shanks Award for singers along with winning the Pavarotti Prize at the Royal Academy of Music.
Céline has now completed a year of training at the National Opera Studio where she continued her training in opera. This took her to Opera North, and Welsh National Opera where she performed a set of opera scenes with her colleagues. She now receives singing lessons from Yvonne Kenny.
Celine is very grateful to be sponsored by Welsh National Opera, the Amar-Frances and Foster-Jenkins Trust, Lisa Newick and Christopher Ball.
