Charlotte Newstead read music at the University of Bristol, graduating with a Masters Degree with distinction in Early Music.
Her busy concert schedule extends through a wide range of genres and includes all the major (and many of the minor!) oratorio works from composers such as JSBach, Handel, Vivaldi, Pergolesi, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendlessohn, Schubert, Brahms, Dvorak, Gounod, Elgar, Orff, Tippett and Karl Jenkins.
She regularly appears as a soloist with orchestras around the UK performing such works as Strauss's Four Last Songs, Mozart's Concert Arias, Bach cantatas and Villa Lobos's Bachianas Brasilieras.
She has had several pieces written for her and in 2011 gave the first performance of a new song-cycle called Songs of Summer by Lyn Lloyd Jones for soprano and string orchestra.
She has sung in venues throughout the UK from Snape Maltings, St Martin in the Fields and Dorchester Abbey to Salisbury Cathedral, Bath Abbey and Petersfield Festival Hall.
She currently splits her time between performing and teaching and has a large number of private pupils. She also sings every week at the Lord Mayor's Chapel in Bristol.
