Fleur Barron has been hailed a ‘charismatic star’ by the Boston Globe and a ‘knockout performer’ by The Times. She was awarded the 2022 Schubert Prize and has been chosen by Het Concertgebouw as a Rising Star and featured artist for the 22-23 season. She is an Artistic Partner of the Orquesta Sinfonica del Principado de Asturias in Oviedo since 2022. She holds a Masters in Vocal Performance from Manhattan School of Music.

Joseph Middleton – described as ‘one of the brightest stars in the world of song and Lieder’ by BBC Music Magazine – has devised a sequence of song recitals exploring responses to the four seasons, with four singers taking a season each and their last song or encore leading us into the next season.
