Natasha Marsh

A chart-topping classical singer, Natasha graduated from Birmingham in 1996 with a BA in Music and Drama.

Why she is outstanding

Soprano Natasha Marsh topped the classical charts with her debut album Amour in February 2007. After graduating, she won a coveted scholarship to the Royal College of Music opera school and made her acclaimed debut with Grange Park Opera singing Jacqueline in Fortunio by André Messager. She later returned to sing the role of Governess in Britten’s The Turn of the Screw.

She was named Young Welsh Singer of the Year 1999 by supporters of the internationally-renowned Morriston Orpheus Choir, and has since created the title role in Michael Berkeley’s new opera Jane Eyre with great success for Music Theatre Wales.

Roles with a number of opera companies include Musetta in Opera Holland Park’s production of La Boheme, Micaela in Carmen at the Royal Albert Hall, and First Lady in The Magic Flute with Glyndebourne Touring Opera.

Natasha was also the voice of European football for the 2008 Euro football championships, recording the theme tune for the opening and closing credits of each ITV broadcast.

Following her self-titled second album in 2008 and UK tour in 2009, Natasha recently performed at Last Night of the Proms with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Ipswich's Christchurch Park, closely followed by the Tower Festival on September 18th.
