The next performance in our 2022 concert series is Soprano Laura Perešivana.

Latvian soprano Laura Lolita Perešivana started her operatic journey when she was only eighteen years old singing Lauretta (Gianni Schicchi) at the Latvian National Opera House. After receiving her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Studies from Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London in 2019, Laura was awarded a scholarship to study at the Guildhall Opera School with Professor Janice Chapman. This year Laura was one of four finalists selected for the Guildhall School’s most prestigious music prize, The Gold Medal, as well as the recipient of the Musicians’ Company Award. Last summer, Laura performed as Berenice (L’occasione fa il ladro) with British Youth Opera at the Opera Holland Park with great success, with Opera Magazine describing ‘her tone pearly, her coloratura purling’. As well as being selected as a CMF Artist, Laura has joined the famed National Opera Studio in London for the 2021/22 season. This autumn, she will compete at the Kathleen Ferrier Awards and the Paris Opera Competition semi-finals.

Organiser CITY MUSIC FOUNDATION

Organiser of Lunchtime Concert Series: Laura Perešivana

Our mission is to turn exceptional musical talent into professional success by equipping outstanding musicians with the tools, skills, experience, and networks they need to build and sustain rewarding and profitable careers.

Through an annual competitive audition process, we select classical soloists and chamber ensembles, as well as jazz, folk, and world musicians. These ‘CMF Artists’ then engage in an innovative two-year programme, which includes artistic and business mentoring, as well as professional development workshops. These workshops cover a range of topics such as managing finances, tax and pensions, legal input on copyright and contracts, plus presentation and interview skills, promotion and publicity strategies, and much more.

We work with the CMF Artists to develop professional promotional tools such as websites, photos, recordings, and videos, as well as providing help with commissioning and other projects to ensure that each musician develops a unique niche and selling point. We present CMF Artists in our own recital series and residencies and arrange performance opportunities at venues and festivals throughout the UK and beyond, as well as securing airtime on BBC Radio 3 and promotion through online, print and social media.
