Sue Anderson

mezzo-soprano

After reading music at St. Hugh’s College, Oxford, mezzo-soprano Sue Anderson began her professional career as a solo pianist with a Wigmore Hall recital sponsored by the Incorporated Socierty of Musicians. However, since then she has worked principally as a singer, in opera houses and concert halls throughout Britain and the rest of Europe, including Glyndebourne, Covent Garden, Antwerp and Brussels.

Her particular interest in promoting the music of living composers has resulted in performances at the Almeida, Huddersfield and Orleans Festivals of contemporary music. She has given first (and second) performances of works by Judith Weir, Michael Finnissy, Elizabeth Lutyens, Hugh Wood and Justin Connolly.
