The Scottish-German mezzo-soprano, Catriona Morison, won the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Main Prize and (joint) Song Prize in 2017. Operatic engagements have taken her to Oper Wuppertal, where she was an ensemble member from 2016-2018, to Oper Köln, Bergen Nasjonale Opera, Theater Erfurt and the Deutsches Nationaltheater. Her roles include Charlotte, Nicklausse, Hänsel, Cherubino and Maddalena. Catriona gave her BBC Proms debut last summer with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Elim Chan, performing Elgar’s Sea Pictures and recently performed Mahler’s 2nd Symphony with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and Osmo Vänskä. She has performed across Europe in recital and her first solo CD with Malcolm Martineau will be released in 2021.
