Conrad Chatterton is an English Baritone currently studying for an MMus in Performance at the Royal Northern College of Music. In 2020, he graduated with a 2:1 M.A (Hons) Geography degree from the University of Aberdeen.
Whilst in Aberdeen, he received vocal tuition from International opera singer and vocal coach Judith Howarth. Since starting at RNCM, he has been under the tutelage of International opera singer and vocal coach Matthew Best.
Conrad made his operatic debut performing ‘Zuniga’ in Bizet's Carmen and has since performed roles such as 'Immigration Officer' in Flight (Royal Northern College of Music), ‘Gianni Schicchi’ in Gianni Schicchi (Random Opera Company), 'Il Commendatore' in Don Giovanni (Allo Opera) ‘Jackie “Tiger” Brown’ in The Threepenny Opera (University of Aberdeen Opera Society), and ‘Melisso’ in Alcina (Aberdeen Early Music Ensemble).
In 2019, he won the Ogston Music Prize, and was also selected as one of eight artists for the Glyndebourne Academy 2019/20 program. In 2021, Conrad took part in the Opera North Mentor Scheme and was a finalist in the RNCM Frederic Cox Competition. Earlier this year, he performed in the chorus for Don Giovanni, Cosi fan tutte, and Acis and Galatea, with Dorset Opera Festival. Later this year, Conrad will be performing the roles of ‘Der Hausehofmeister’ and ‘Ein Lakai’ in Staruss’ Ariadne auf Naxos (Royal Northern College of Music).
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.
