The Scottish mezzo-soprano Nicola Wemyss graduated from the Birmingham Conservatoire cum laude and went on to specialise at the Royal Netherlands Conservatory in The Hague in baroque singing. Her career was launched with the first prize for baroque song at the 2000 Chimay Competition, the start of a series of engagements with leading orchestras and ensembles, including Les Arts Florissants, the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, the Utrecht Baroque Consort, and others. She has worked with conductors including Frans Brüggen, William Christie, Ton Koopman, Paul van Nevel, Steven Sloane and Jos van Veldhoven. With a broad concert repertoire from the Renaissance to the early romantic, Nicola Wemyss has undertaken leading operatic rôles, and her recordings include Dido in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Dafne in Handel’s Apollo e Dafne and the Queen of Sheba and First Woman in the Naxos recording of Handel’s Solomon (8.557574-75).
