Born into a family of string players and singers, Janet began her musical training from the age of seven as a cellist. Singing became her first love and in 2000 she joined Opera Nova and found her true passion – opera. Operatic roles have included the Third Lady The Magic Flute, The Voice Tales of Hoffman, Ida Die Fledermaus and excerpts from Norma, Lakmé, Der Rosenkavalier, Fidelio and La Forza Del Destino - all with Opera Nova. She performed at Oxenfoord International Summer School as La Principessa Suor Angelica and Dorabella Così fan tutte. She is in demand as a soloist performing across the region and the wider UK as the mezzo-contralto member of Opera by Design (www.operabydesign.co.uk).
