Helen Daniels alto
Helen first began singing when she joined Coventry Blue Coat School Choir at the age of eleven and went on to sing solos in York Minster, Salisbury and Wells Cathedrals. She is now a choral scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge and has been studying with Fiona Dobie for the past three years. After university she hopes to pursue a solo career as a mezzo-soprano. Solo work has included Haydn’s Nelson Mass, Vivaldi’s Gloria and Bach’s St John Passion. She has also played the supporting female, Liddy, in the student-composed opera Far From the Madding Crowd (Barnaby Martin, 2012), Romeo in Purcell’s Fairy Queen: Re-imagined (Sophie Rashbrook, 2012) and Lapak in Janacek’s Cunning Little Vixen (2013). Helen has recorded numerous CDs with Trinity College Choir and has toured America, Canada and Germany with the ensemble in her three years as an undergraduate. As well as singing, Helen also plays the clarinet and piano. Aside from music, she is a keen badminton player.
