Born in Suffolk, Teresa studied Archaeology at the University of Cambridge, where she held a choral scholarship at Selwyn College. She then attended Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance for postgraduate vocal studies. Here she gained an MMus in Vocal Performance with distinction, studying under Sophie Grimmer.
Teresa has performed throughout the UK with The Merry Opera Company as a soloist in their acclaimed staged Messiah, as Rachel Harmon in Kiss me, Figaro! and in opera gala concerts. Other notable operatic roles include the title role in La Calisto, Maria/Mansfield Park, Messegiera/Orfeo and Tilly/The Secret Garden by Stephen McNeff. She has performed opera scenes including the title role in Arabella, Fiordiligi/Così fan tutte, Anne/Die Lustige Weiber von Windsor and Sophie/Der Rosenkavalier.
In oratorio and concert work, she has performed Bach’s St Matthew Passion, Handel’s Messiah and has given many solo recitals in venues such as St Bride’s Fleet Street, St Alfege Greenwich and Blackheath Concert Halls. She has extensive choral experience, including singing in the London Philharmonia student scheme and the London Philharmonic Choir.
