Isobel moved to Liverpool from Switzerland seven years ago to complete her training as a GP, only to find her attention turning increasingly to singing.
Studying first with Sarah Helsby-Hughes and currently with Christine Cairns, she is delighted to now find herself being offered opportunities to perform as a soloist in oratorio-concerts and recitals throughout the region, as well as being a member of the chamber group Priory Voices, with whom she sings services in Cathedrals all over the country.
Solo performances have included J. S. Bach’s Ascension Oratorio, Rossini’s Petite Messe
Solennelle, Mozart's Requiem, Haydn’s Nelson Mass and a performance of one of Hildegard
von Bingen’s processional plainchants, O vis aeternitatis, sung in the Metropolitan Cathedral
during a concert premiering a work by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies.
Isobel has also appeared in a number of operatic roles including Olga in Eugene Onegin, the Sorceress in Dido and Aeneas, Valencienne in The Merry Widow and Cousin Hebe in Heritage Opera’s production of H.M.S. Pinafore.
Alongside her own performance activities, Isobel does some vocal teaching and choral
conducting and is currently conducting the chorus rehearsals for Opera Viva’s upcoming
production of La Traviata.
