Conrad Chatterton is an English Baritone and Maria Bjornson Memorial Fund Scholar in his second year Postgraduate MMus degree at the Royal Northern College of Music. In 2020, he graduated with a 2:1 (Hons) in M.A Geography from the University of Aberdeen.
Whilst in Aberdeen, he obtained a vocal scholarship and received tuition from Judith Howarth. He has since been granted an entrance scholarship and further study scholarship at RNCM and has been under the tutelage of Matthew Best.
Conrad made his operatic debut performing ‘Zuniga’ in Bizet's Carmen and has since performed the roles of ‘Gianni Schicchi’ in Gianni Schicchi, ‘Bartolo’ in Le nozze di Figaro, ‘Der Haushofmeister’ & ‘Ein Lakai’ in Ariadne auf Naxos – Prologue, ‘Immigration Officer’ in Flight, ‘Jackie “Tiger” Brown’ in Threepenny Opera, and ‘Melisso’ in Alcina.
In 2021 he performed in the chorus for Don Giovanni, Cosi fan tutte and Acis and Galatea, with Dorset Opera Festival and took part in the Opera North Mentor Scheme. In 2019, Conrad won the Ogston Performance Music Prize, and was also selected as one of eight artists for the Glyndebourne Academy 2019/20 programme.
Conrad’s upcoming performances in 2022, include performing as a Chorister with Grange Park Opera for the 2022 Summer Season and perfoming as 'Sir John Falstaff' in BYO's production of Vaughan Williams' Sir John in Love.
He is certainly excellent on stage and a very engaging performer. I shall watch with great interest his progress in the future that he deserves.
