Students Perform with KorVest

Following the launch of The Platform earlier this year, the School of Vocal Studies and Opera has embraced its new partnership with KorVest, the ensemble of Bergen Opera and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra.

In October and November, sopranos Catriona Hewitson and Catrin Woodruff, and baritones Graham McCusker and Steven Griffin took part in the College’s inaugural engagement with the organisation, travelling to Norway for rehearsals and performances of Bach Motet Jesu meine Freude and Mozart’s Requiem. Additionally, alumnus Matthew Moss (tenor, 2010) was awarded a chorus contract for the Bergen Opera production of Beethoven’s Fidelio, and baritone Stuart Orme participated in a composers’ weekend with Judith Weir.
