British/Australian soprano Lauren Lodge-Campbell recently graduated from the Artist Masters course at the Guildhall School, where she studied with Janice Chapman and Yvonne Kenny. Lauren completed a BMus (Advanced Performance, 1st class) at the Queensland Conservatorium (Australia) in 2013, studying with Margaret Schindler. Awards while at the Conservatorium include the Linda Edith Allen Award for Singing (Postgraduate), the Ethel Osborn Scholarship, the Doreen Ord & Lyceum Club Prize, and both the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Elizabeth Muir Awards for Singing.

At the Guildhall School Lauren was the winner of the Susan Longfield Prize and the Franz Schubert Institut Lieder Competition. The latter awarded her a full scholarship to study at the Franz Schubert Institut in Baden, Austria in summer 2016. In 2017 Lauren was the winner of the inaugural Cheltenham Bach Choir Competition, and a Semi Finalist in the Wigmore Hall/Kohn Foundation International Song Competition with duo partner, Michael Sikich.

Opera roles include the title role in Janácek’s The Cunning Little Vixen, for which she was recipient of the Sir Mostyn Hanger Opera Prize; Drusilla L’incoronazione di Poppea, Cherubino Le nozze di Figaro, A Woman (The Plaint) The Fairy Queen, and Lauretta Gianni Schicchi. Lauren performed the lead role of Matsya in the world premiere of the touring opera Floods for the Queensland Conservatorium and Brisbane Festival. In 2016 Lauren made her Barbican Hall debut with the London Symphony Orchestra under Sir Simon Rattle in the role of the Princess in the world premiere of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’ children’s opera The Hogboon, a role which Opera Magazine described as “given with touching simplicity and luminous vocal beauty”.

A keen recitalist, Lauren has performed at recitals at the Barbican Hall, LSO St Luke’s and at the Holywell Music Room as part of the Oxford Lieder Festival Mastercourse. Lauren performed Schumann’s Spanisches Liebeslieder at Wigmore Hall alongside the Prince Consort and Guildhall musicians. A member of the Guildhall Song Guild directed by Graham Johnson OBE, Lauren has participated in masterclasses with such artists as Roger Vignoles, Julius Drake, Elly Ameling, Richard Stokes, Dame Emma Kirkby and Dame Felicity Lott. Lauren has performed as a soloist with the Queensland Conservatorium Chamber Orchestra and is a member of the Guildhall Consort, most recently performing with the Venice Baroque Orchestra at the Barbican Hall.

Lauren is grateful for the generous support from the Carpenters' Company (Henry Osborne Award), the Australia Day Foundation UK Trust, the Kathleen Trust and the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University.

Pianist Dylan Perez is a highly sought after recitalist, chamber musician, and coach specialising in vocal repertoire. He graduated in 2016 with Distinction from the Artist Masters programme at the Guildhall School where he studied with Pamela Lidiard and Julius Drake. Prior to relocating to London, he studied at the University of Michigan with Louis Nagel and Martin Katz.

Recently, he was awarded the Gerald Moore Prize for accompanists. He was also awarded the Paul Hamburger Prize for Accompaniment in association with a performance of Die schöne Müllerin, directed by Graham Johnson.

In April 2016, he was a finalist in the Kathleen Ferrier awards at Wigmore Hall where he, along with his duo partner mezzo soprano Bianca Andrew, received the Loveday Song Prize. He was a finalist in the competition again in 2017, and performed with Francesca Chiejina, Daniel Shelvey, and Eduard Mas Bacardit. Along with duo partner Iúnó Connolly, Dylan was a semi-finalist in the 2017 Das Lied International Song Competition in Heidelberg, Germany.

In May, he performed alongside the Prince Consort at the Wigmore Hall, playing Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzer and Stephen Hough’s Other Love Songs. Dylan has performed in Pre-LSO concerts at the Barbican Hall and was featured in a BBC Proms Extra concert, broadcast live on Radio 3 from Imperial College. Recently, he was featured on a Radio 3 recital, performing songs by Richard Rodney Bennett with baritone Benson Wilson.

He is an alumnus of the Franz-Schubert-Institut in Baden bei Wien, Austria, where he performed in masterclasses for Julius Drake, Rudolf Jansen, Helmut Deutsch, and Elly Ameling. Dylan is also a Britten-Pears Young Artist and studied there with Christoph Pregardien, Julius Drake, and Richard Stokes. Dylan has also played in masterclasses with Renee Fleming, Joyce DiDonato, Dame Felicity Lott, and with Roger Vignoles, Brigitte Fassbaender, and Christian Gerhaher at Wigmore Hall.

Dylan is the founder of re-sung, a London based song recital series that focuses on the connection between text and music, with special interest on creating new interpretations of masterworks and championing contemporary song.

Passionate about the voice, Dylan is closely associated with Prof. Janice Chapman at the Guildhall School where he plays for her lessons, learns about the mechanics of vocal technique, and amasses vast knowledge for coaching young and mature singers.

He continues on the Artist Diploma course at the Guildhall School and studies with Eugene Asti, Andrew West, and Iain Burnside. Dylan is grateful for the support of the Norman Gee Foundation and the Guildhall School Trust.
