Laureate of the Jardin des Voix, 4th edition (2009)
"Auditioning for the Jardin des Voix was a life changing moment. The programme was so much more than a (brilliant) platform from which to enter the world of baroque music. It infused me with a passion for the repertoire and gave me the tools to interpret and explore it further. I didn’t realise it then, but I was also meeting a new family for the first time. The musicians and singers I met then have been my dearest friends in the last 12 years. Above all, William has been an amazing source of encouragement, guidance and inspiration as I have navigated along the wonderful path that he helped to start me on. I can’t express how grateful I am for everything the Jardin des Voix has given me."
