In May 2023, we welcomed acclaimed Scottish soprano Marie McLaughlin into the Studio to lead a masterclass with three of our Young Artists – Samantha Quillish (Soprano), Sarah Seunghwa Chae (Soprano), Beren Kader Fidan (Soprano) accompanied by repetiteurs Max Bilbe (Pianist) and Adrian Salinero (Pianist).

Marie is a NOS alumnus (1978/79) and a member the NOS Sounding Board - a group of professional opera artists which support our mission to prepare highly talented young artists for a modern career in today’s opera profession.

The event was filmed live from the Studio's Blackburn Hall. It is now available to watch via our YouTube channel.
