We are delighted to announce that two outstanding young sopranos, Alexandra Lowe and Emily Pogorelc, have become Associate Artists of The Mozartists. The development and promotion of top-quality young singers has always been central to our mission, and our Associate Artist Scheme, founded in 2006, provides mentorship, coaching and extensive training and performance opportunities, as well as a small bursary. Previous members of the scheme have included Louise Alder, Sophie Bevan, Allan Clayton, Anna Devin, Alessandro Fisher, Stuart Jackson, Natalia Romaniw and Chiara Skerath.
Alexandra Lowe studied at the Royal Northern College of Music, Guildhall School of Music & Drama and the National Opera Studio, and she won Second Prize at the 2020 Glyndebourne Opera Cup. She has just graduated from the Jette Parker Young Artist Programme at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, where she recently received tremendous acclaim in a staging of Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire. She makes her Mozartists début on 17 January 2023 at Wigmore Hall.
Emily Pogorelc was born in Milwaukee and studied at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. She was the youngest finalist in the inaugural Glyndebourne Cup in 2018, and since 2020 has been a member of the ensemble at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, where her roles have included Gretel in Hänsel und Gretel, Musetta in La bohème and Adina in L’elisir d’amore. She made her Mozartists début at Cadogan Hall in November 2021, and will feature in the next release in our ‘Sturm und Drang’ recording series.
