More About Charlotte

Charlotte Newstead read music at the University of Bristol, graduating with a Masters Degree with distinction in Early Music. She was involved in an international project to transcribe & publish the complete works of sixteenth-century French court composer, Eustache du Caurroy, and subsequently her transcriptions have been recorded by the Choir of New College, Oxford under Edward Higginbottom.

Since graduating she has built a career as a concert soprano in the West of England, appearing with all the major groups and at all the major venues of the area including St George’s Brandon Hill, Bristol Cathedral, Clifton Cathedral, Bristol’s Colston Hall and Bath Abbey. Recent performances have also taken her to Snape Maltings and to London to St Martin in the Fields, The Temple Church and Greenwich Theatre as well as recital work in France and she has also given a live recital on Classic FM.

A specialist in the early repertoire, she is equally comfortable with more modern styles and has had several pieces written for her. Her wide experience of the oratorio repertoire extends from Bach, Handel and Vivaldi to Mozart, Poulenc, Orff and Copland. Operatic roles include Dido in Purcells’ Dido & Aeneas, Vespina in Haydn’s L’infidelta delusa and Lucy in Menotti’s The Telephone.

Charlotte teaches Music Theory and Music History in the lifelong learning department of The University of Bristol. She also teaches singing both privately and at Badminton and Henbury Schools in Bristol and she sings every week at the Lord Mayor’s Chapel in Bristol.
