Biography

Maisy-Flo Hepburn is a classically trained mezzo-soprano from Uttoxeter, Staffordshire. She is currently in her third year of undergraduate study at the RNCM under the tutorage of Susan Roper.

Maisy-Flo has always held an interest in music and more specifically a serious passion for singing in particular. It was this passion that saw her enrol in lessons at the age of ten with local teacher (Coral Gould MBE) and from there she was encouraged to perform on various concert platforms in order to increase in confidence. Initially, this saw her engage in seasonal concerts at professional theatres, competing and eventually winning competitive vocal festivals, (Burton Upon Trent, Lichfield Music Festival) and also winning bursary awards in order to help fund her studies (courtesy of Burton upon-Trent’s BADAC fund and Staffordshire county councils funding for the arts). Maisy-Flo then progressed into performing in many theatres throughout the midlands (New Vic, Basford, Oldham Colesium- Manchester, Brewhouse- Burton upon trent and Regent theatre Hanley) and other highlights included being a guest singer for an AOTOS masterclass with the highly acclaimed Mary King herself. She is also a keen recitalist and has made many appearances for Staffordshire county councils private and public events. Maisy-Flo is also the annual guest singer for the Midlands horse racing grand national and has been the guest soloist at Newcastle Male Voice Choir concerts and other private functions.

However, it was at the age of fifteen that Maisy-Flo considered attempting to pave a career out of her love of performing and was encouraged to audition for the prestigious Chethams School of Music, Manchester. After successfully gaining entry into Chethams she was then submerged into various choral projects which included Elgars Dream of Gerontius- Royal Festival Hall under David Hill , Wagners ‘Meistersingers’- The Bridgewater Hall under Sir Mark Elder and Griegs Peer Gynt – RNCM and Lancaster university under Stephen Threlfall to name but a few. She was also cast in operettas such as The Little Sweep (Manchester Cathedral) and Trial By Jury ( Chethams Baronial Hall) and was a regular recitalist in and around Manchester. In her final year at Chethams Maisy-Flo also premiered as Evelyn Bond in ‘Tyneham:the musical’, composed by Jordan Clarke and was a soloist in a song cycle of Brittens folk arrangement with harp ( Chethams Carol Nash Hall)..

Maisy has also had many success’ having sung in the chorus for Haydn’s ‘Little Organ Mass’ and ‘Creation’, Bach’s St. John Passion and is a member of the prestigious all female vocal ensemble ‘Les Siren’ who regularly broadcast for the BBC and perform in venues all over Glasgow. Maisy-Flo has also founded a new Gilbert and Sullivan society at the Scottish conservatoire and will be making her debut directing role this coming summer.
