British lyric soprano Nadine Benjamin is a charismatic and versatile artist who is in increasing demand on both the operatic stage and the concert platform. She is also developing great renown as an exponent of song, in particular Verdi, Strauss, Berg and contemporary American song. Nadine recently released her debut solo album ‘Love & Prayer’ and is currently performing as the titular role in Tosca and as Musetta in La bohème with ENO.

Nicole Panizza has emerged as one the UK’s leading vocal accompanists, recitalists and coaches. Nicole studied at the Elder Conservatorium of Music, South Australia before continuing her postgraduate studies in London with Malcolm Martineau and Roger Vignoles. She has recently been awarded her Doctor of Music degree (Royal College of Music, UK); a study that focused on American art song settings of the poet Emily Dickinson.
