Lunchtime Concert

Sophie Gallagher (soprano): a recital of vocal music with piano

Sophie GallagherSophie began her musical life as a chorister at Salisbury Cathedral from 2002- 2007, singing under the direction of both Simon Lole and David Halls, becoming Dean’s Chorister in her final year.

She then spent a further two years as a chorister at Wells Cathedral with Matthew Owens. A Specialist Music Scholarship in 2009 led to a focus on solo singing, but she continues to combine this with her love for choral singing.

Sophie is in her final year at Wells Cathedral School, and has studied with Nigel Perrin for the last 3 years and more recently Isobel Buchanan. Solo opportunities in Wells Cathedral have included Handel’s Messiah, Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, Mozart’s Requiem, and Bob Chilcott’s Requiem, along with solos with Wells Cathedral Choir on recent CDs for the labels Hyperion and Regent.

Sophie hopes to go to University to study languages, followed by Music College, with the intention of pursuing a solo singing career.
