Scottish mezzo-soprano Judy Louie Brown read Music at the University of Edinburgh and received her Masters from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and is now a much sought-after recitalist, opera and consort singer. Described by Opera Magazine as singing with “steadiness, purity, dignity and command”, she works with Dunedin Consort, Scottish Opera, the OAE, Monteverdi Choir, English Concert and the Academy of Ancient Music. She has performed at the Proms, Aix-en-Provence Festival, London Handel Festival, Handel Festival in Halle, Germany, Edinburgh International Festival, the Barbican’s Contemporary Music Season and at the Tête-à-Tête opera festival, and on stages as diverse as Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, the Wigmore Hall, the Vienna Musikverein and St Magnus’ Cathedral, Orkney. 

Praised for the “dynamism and delicacy” of her singing, solo performance highlights include the Orcadian premiere of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’ song cycle for mezzo-soprano and chamber ensemble The Birds in St Magnus Cathedral, Orkney, a recital of the lieder of Schubert and Hans Gál in the Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh, Handel’s Messiah for The Edinburgh Royal Choral Union in the Usher Hall, and the Angel in Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius in Southwark Cathedral.  

Recent performances include the St Matthew Passion with Dunedin Consort, St John Passion with Kristian Bezuidenhout, Messiah with Nevill Holt Opera, Second Witch in Errolyn Wallen’s Dido’s Ghost at the Barbican, Edinburgh International Festival and Buxton Opera Festival, and Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with the English Concert. Forthcoming projects include Rutter’s Feel the Spirit in Southwell Minster, Elgar’s The Music Makers with Bingham Choral Society, recording and performances of Mercadante’s Il Proscritto with Opera Rara, a solo lieder recital in Vienna and the role of Lady Carnarvon in Rosabella Gregory’s new opera Tutankhamun’s shoes.
