Join us for the final instalment of our Bernadette Greevy Recital Series for an evening of song with lyric soprano Clare Quinn. 
The evening will also feature the premier of a newly commissioned composition by Robin Haigh, winner of the Jerome Hynes Young Composers’ Award 2023

Clare’s 2023 Bernadette Greevy Bursary winning performance was adjudicated by Executive Director of Irish National Opera, Diego Fasciati and operatic soprano Mairead Buicke. 

The award is named in memory of the renowned Irish mezzo Bernadette Greevy (1940–2008), who was Artistic Director of the Anna Livia International Opera Festival and Artist in Residence at the Dublin Institute of Technology. The award aims to provide opportunities for emerging Irish singers.

Born and raised in Galway, Ireland, Clare Quinn is a Lyric Soprano currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
Clare studies with Marie Vassiliou and Janet Haney. In July 2022, Clare graduated with First Class honours in Vocal Performance studies from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where she studied with Colette McGahon and James Southall. 

Her operatic experience to date includes Ilia (Idomeneo); Rosalinde (Die Fledermaus); First Lady (Magic Flute) RAM Opera Scenes; Dew Fairy (Hansel and Gretel) with May Street Opera; 1st Bridesmaid (Le Nozze di Figaro) with the David Seligman Opera School RWCMD; Fiordiligi (Cosi Fan Tutte) in Opera Scenes at RWCMD.

Clare has been fortunate to have had some wonderful opportunities such as performing in Carnegie Hall, New York; performing for Irish President in Áras an Uachtaráin; as well as taking part in BBC Cardiff singer of the World Fringe events including masterclasses with Simon Lepper and Ilker Arcayurek.

Whilst studying in Cardiff, Clare was a choral scholar with the BBC National Chorus of Wales and performed with them at the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.  During this time Clare was awarded the Harlequin agency prize from the RWCMD.
The National Concert Hall wishes to acknowledge the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport, and Media for its kind support of the Bernadette Greevy Bursary for Singers.
