After studying at the Royal Academy of Music and being bestowed with a Fellowship (FRAM), she continued her studies in Switzerland with the distinguished Soprano Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, and subsequently lived and studied in Chicago, gaining Scholarships from the Royal Society of Arts, the Worshipful Company of Musicians and the Ian Fleming Trust. She was chosen by the BBC to represent England for the prestigious BBC TV’s Singer of the World Competition, and subsequently went on to make her solo operatic debut with Scottish Opera and the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. She has since sung over 25 Principal roles with Major companies throughout the UK and Europe earning reviews such as “A sumptuous Voice” from the London Independent and “Jane Webster sounds excellent!” from The Times
Her Career to that date had been mainly in the field of Opera, but she then made her London West End Debut in “Phantom of the Opera”, and is currently appearing as the Mother Superior in The Sound of Music at the London Palladium. She also tours extensively World-wide with her solo Cabaret shows, and is regularly seen and heard on BBCTV and Radio.
