Robert Singer is the winner of Britten Sinfonia’s OPUS2018 competition for unpublished composers. Robert grew up in the English Lake District where music became an integral part of his life from the beginning. When he was five, an inherited piano became his creative instrument.
Robert is a graduate of the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where he focussed on classical and electroacoustic music, and led an independent project with external choreographers.
Since graduating Robert has worked with soprano Chanae Curtis (praised for her attractive singing by the New York Times) and Jakob Grubbström (conductor of the Cantores Amicitiae choir). As the winner of OPUS2018, Robert will receive a commission fee, and a professional recording of his work.
Robert’s newly commissioned piece, a setting of texts about the sea, will be performed in the At Lunch Three concerts, taking place on Friday 22nd March in Norwich, Tuesday 26th March in Cambridge, and Wednesday 27th March at Wigmore Hall, London.
From as little as £10 you can help support the creation and performances of this new work and get your name in the score.
