Charlie has just finished studying for a Master’s degree as a scholar at the Royal College of Music. He enjoys a busy schedule of concert, opera, and ensemble singing, particularly as winner of the 2024 Salvat Beca Bach in Barcelona this year. He has performed the role of Papageno in The Magic Flute and Valentin in Faust for Arcadian Opera, Figaro in a contemporary reworking of Marriage of Figaro, Polifemo in New Chamber Opera's Handel Aci Galatea e Polifemo, and covered Leporello in Oxford Alternative Orchestra’s Don Giovanni, as well as roles in Fête Galante, Dardanus, The Old Maid and the Thief, and Martha for RCM opera scenes.


Charlie graduated with the Provost’s prize from King’s, Cambridge, where he was a choral scholar reading engineering. He performed many solos with King’s, including for the live broadcast of the centenary Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, and at the Concertgebouw and Sydney Opera house. After a very brief career as an engineer (including designing some sound-absorbing sleepers for where the Elizabeth tube line goes under the Wigmore Hall), Charlie decided to turn to singing and hasn’t looked back.


He has performed the Duruflé, Fauré and Brahms Requiems as soloist with the CUMS chorus alumni in King’s Chapel. Charlie has also performed solos in Bach St John Passion, Stravinsky Renard, Rossini Petite Messe Solonelle, and Handel Acis and Galatea. He studies with Russell Smythe and has had consultations with Christopher Purves, Roderick Williams, and James Gilchrist, as well as masterclasses with Emma Kirkby, Michael Chance, and Laurence Cummings.
