Mezzo-soprano Milette Gillow recently graduated with distinction from the Preparatory Opera course at the Royal Academy of Music under tutelage of Alex Ashworth, following a Ph.D. in maths. Her operatic experience includes Angelina (La Cenerentola, RAO Scenes), Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia, RAM Scenes), and Lucretia (The Rape of Lucretia, RAM Scenes), and she performed the role of Dido (Dido and Aeneas) with HGO in May 2022.
An experienced oratorio soloist, Milette regularly performs in sacred works, including a Royal Academy Bach Soloists concert at the Wigmore Hall. As a recitalist, she holds a particular fondness for 20th Century English Song, and her performances include Elgar’s Sea Pictures with the Bridge Sinfonia and a 45-minute English Song programme at the Wigmore Hall. A keen choral singer and conductor, Milette is a member of the Monteverdi Choir and has worked closely with the RAM Choral Conducting department over the past two years. She was one of eight NYCGB Fellows 2019/20.
