Review: Claire Ward’s performance with Figure Ensemble
City Music Foundation Artist Claire Ward (soprano) recently performed in This is my Body, a concert with Figure Ensemble exploring Dietrich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri at the Swiss Church, Covent Garden.
Robert Hugill reviewed the performance writing that “the performances from the five singers, Claire Ward, Katie Macdonald, Tom Lilburn, Michael Bell and Hugo Herman-Wilson, were terrific. There was an understated directness to the singing, all with a fine sense of line and a beauty of tone.”
Claire Ward is a British/Irish soprano based in London. In 2022 Claire became an Opera Prelude Young Artist and returned to perform with Opera Holland Park in the chorus of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin.
