Prize-winning soprano joins TL as the International Artist in Voice

Wed 10 August 2022

We are excited to announce that The Hearn Foundation has generously agreed to fund celebrated Irish soprano, Ailish Tynan, as the International Artist in Voice at Trinity Laban.  

Ailish will be joining us in September to provide expert coaching and feedback to TL’s Vocal Studies students. The Hearn Foundation’s generous gift will fund nine sessions across the year, for the next three academic years. She will also work with students on a mini concert, once a year, with one student receiving a bursary award of £500.  

Ailish won the 2003 Rosenblatt Recital Song Prize at BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, was a member of the prestigious Vilar Young Artist Programme at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. She was also a BBC New Generation Artist, where she recorded and performed prolifically with the BBC orchestras and in recital. 

Recent engagements include recitals at Wigmore Hall, Leeds Lieder and New Paths Music; Finzi In Terra Pax with the BBC Symphony Orchestra; Orff Carmina Burana with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra; Mahler Symphony No.4 with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra; and her return to Garsington Opera as Despina in Così fan tutte. 

Ailish joined our judging panel for the final of the Carne Trust Chamber Competition in June, hosted for the first time in front of a live audience, after its launch had been impacted by the pandemic. 

On hearing the news, Ailish announced on social media –  

“I am thrilled to say that I’ve been appointed International Artist in Voice for Trinity Laban. I could not be more delighted and can’t wait to start in September and join the fantastic team already doing brilliant work.”
