As a soloist, I love to sing Jazz and Soul music

‘My name is Venetia and I am an alto. I have been living and working in London for just over two years.

I was introduced to liturgical singing after leaving Sixth Form and have been hooked ever since! Whilst studying Geography at Oxford, I held a choral scholarship at Keble College, where I had the opportunity to take part in several recordings, tours and performances.

As a soloist, I love to sing Jazz and Soul music and am delighted to be singing in an environment that values and encourages different musical styles.

I’m excited to develop my skills as a singer at St James’s, and look forward to seeing what is in store for the year ahead!’
