Laure Meloy

International soprano and voice teacher. I have sung with opera companies and orchestras throughout Europe and the USA, including the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, English National Opera, Welsh National Opera, and at the Lincoln Center Festival, New York. Locally, I have appeared with the Whitstable Choral Society, at Canterbury Cathedral, and at the Canterbury Festival. I teach private singing lessons in Canterbury and London, as well as in the music department of Canterbury Christ Church University, and have run Singing for Health workshops at the Horsebridge Centre in Whitstable. I have also developed workshops for the health of the professional voice, suitable for teachers, salespeople, actors, or anyone who uses their speaking and/or singing voice in their work.
