I have been working with the Maltese Mezzo-soprano Clare Ghigo as her repertoire coach at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff for almost two years.

She possesses a resonant,and extremely flexible mezzo voice with a wide range which is consistent throughout. She has a thorough knowledge of her own voice and its possibilities and together with her enquiring mind, is always searching for suitable roles to perform.

Clare is always busy with concert and opera performances both in college and in the wider profession. At this moment in time she is undertaking a long tour around the UK singing a principal role in 'The Magic Flute' with Welsh National Opera. I believe that given the appropriate opportunities, she should have a successful career in her chosen profession.

She is a lovely person and a pleasure to work with and I wish her all success in the future.

Clare Ghigo is a high Mezzo-Soprano. I have now been teaching her for nearly two academic years at the RWCMD.

She is an extremely hard working girl, and is such a pleasure to teach. We have been working very hard on technique which Clare thrives on, and is very capable at putting it into practice, which will ensure her a long career.

She has an appetite for learning new repertoire. I feel she certainly has the voice and the intelligence to make a successful artist. I am delighted with the huge improvements Clare has made over the last two years in Cardiff.

I am confident that she will have a very good career in opera,oratorio and the concert stage. I couldn't wish for a better student and wish her well.
