biography title

Born and raised in the Peak District, Frances Gregory is a Mezzo-Soprano currently studying for her Masters with Elizabeth Ritchie and Iain Ledingham at the Royal Academy of Music; in September 2017 she will continue her studies as a member of Royal Academy Opera, the Academy’s prestigious Opera School.



Her upcoming and recent operatic performances comprise chorus (The Rake’s Progress, Don Giovanni) for the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Vénus (Orphée aux enfers) for Royal Academy Opera, Nancy (Albert Herring) for RAM Opera scenes, Dorabella (Così fan tutte) for Opera Loki, chorus for the 2016 Glyndebourne Festival production of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Brood-hen/Russalka (May Night) for Royal Academy Opera, Female Chorus (The Rape of Lucretia) for RAM Opera scenes, the Governess (The Turn of the Screw) for Wild Swan Opera and the role of Susie (The Silver Tassie) in a selection of contemporary opera scenes for Music Theatre Wales


Equally at home on the concert platform, Frances made her Cadogan Hall debut singing the Mezzo-Soprano in Haydn’s Heiligmesse alongside the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and City of London Choir. Other oratorio and solo engagements include Bach’s Mass in B Minor, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Mozart’s Requiem and Coronation Mass, Britten’s Ceremony of Carols, Handel’s Messiah and Mendelssohn’s Elijah.


She has a love for German song and was awarded the E.A Redman prize for the Interpretation of Schubert Lieder by the RWCMD, and in early 2015 was a multiple prize winner at the David Clover Festival of Singing in Sheffield; her accolades including Best Operatic Performance and the Elizabeth Watts Lied Prize. In 2016 Frances was a recipient of the Winifred Agnes Disney Award from the Royal Academy of Music, and in early 2017 she will compete in the semi-final of the National Mozart Competition.


She is generously supported by the Royal Academy of Music, the Winship Foundation, the Split Infinitive Trust and the Josephine Baker Trust.
