Kentish mezzo Chloë Treharne currently studies on the prestigious Opera Course at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. She also holds MMus (Distinction) and BMus (Hons) First Class degrees from the Guildhall School. She is grateful for the support of the Salters’ Company for their support of her studies.
Chloë made her professional opera debut in 2014 as a Christine Collins Young Artist at Opera Holland Park singing the role of Rosina in Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia. She went on to cover the role of Tisbe in Rossini’s La Cenerentola for Scottish Opera, and sing the role of La Suor Infermiera in Puccini’s Suor Angelica at Opera Holland Park. At the Guildhall School, Chloë performed the role of Philhomène in Martinů’s comic opera Alexandre Bis and is looking forward to singing the roles of Laura in Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta and Neighbour in Stravinsky’s Mavra in November 2016. In fully staged opera scenes in London and further afield, Chloë has sung excerpts from roles such as Fox The Cunning Little Vixen, Nancy Albert Herring, Idamante Idomeneo, Dorabella Cosi fan tutte, Romeo I Capuleti e i Montecchi, Cendrillon Cendrillon, Annio La Clemenza di Tito, Mélisande Pelléas et Mélisande, Cherubino Le Nozze di Figaro, and Zerlina Don Giovanni.
A keen recitalist, Chloë was recently a finalist in the Oxford Lieder Festival Young Artist Platform with duo partner, Lana Bode, and was the winner of the Guildhall School English Song Competition in 2013. She has performed recitals in major venues across London, including Wolf Italienisches Liederbuch at Barbican Hall, a performance of contemporary works at the Wigmore Hall, and a recital of Mahler Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen at LSO St. Luke’s. She is an alumna of the Franz-Schubert-Institut in Baden-bei-Wien, Austria, where she worked in masterclass with renowned interpreters of song such as Ann Murray, Elly Ameling, Helmut Deutsch, Roger Vignoles, Julius Drake, and Robert Holl. In other masterclasses Chloë has sung to Sir John Tomlinson, Edith Wiens, Sarah Walker, and Sarah Connolly, who described Chloë as “exciting new talent” on Twitter.
In concert, Chloë has performed as the alto soloist in Stravinsky’s Mass with the London Symphony Orchestra under Valery Gergiev, and as the mezzo soprano soloist in Rossini’s magnificent Stabat Mater as part of the ROSSINI 2016 festival, celebrating the 200th anniversary of Il Barbiere di Siviglia.
Chloë was announced the winner of the 2015 Freda Parry, and has appeared as a finalist in other national competitions, such as the Bampton Classical Opera Competition for Young Singers, and the Maureen Lehane Vocal Awards.
