Susanna Fairbairn studied music at Magdalen College, Oxford, with an instrumental scholarship on the flute. After a year as a Lay Vicar Choral at Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, and a masterclass with Emma Kirkby, she changed direction and went on to study as a soprano at Trinity College of Music, winning the English Song Competition, the Wilfred Greenhouse Allt Prize and the Paul Simm Opera Prize. Solo, consort and opera work now takes her worldwide. Highlights as a soloist include Handel’s Israel in Egypt at Cadogan Hall for John Eliot Gardiner, Mozart’s C Minor Mass with Sian Edwards, the St John Passion in Symphony Hall with Ex Cathedra, Tavener’s The Veil of the Temple in Canterbury Cathedral in the presence of the composer, and an appearance singing O Holy Night for BBC1 on Christmas Day 2010. Operatic rôles include Lady Billows in Albert Herring (directed by Steuart Bedford), Armida in Rinaldo (directed by Nicholas Kraemer) and Agrippina in a new work Fragments of Sun by Litha Efthymiou at the Tête à Tête Opera Festival 2012.
