This exclusive evening event will take you on a journey of operatic excellence in the RA’s historic Life Drawing Room.

An operetta by Royal Academy Schools student Hamish Pearch, with vocals by Charlotte Bröker, this evening will be a repertoire of classical and contemporary songs; colliding different eras, styles and attitudes.

“In this performance, it won’t be so much of the words as being important, but the tone, the accent, the language of flowers and silent things. There is a kind of alchemy to atmosphere… It’s about asking questions, most of which there aren’t any answers to.” – Hamish Pearch

Charlotte Bröker is a soprano at the start of her singing career. She studied History of Art at Clare College, Cambridge and was a choral scholar and solo recitalist at Emmanuel College. She now works freelance as a classical and jazz singer across the UK, continuing her training with teacher Ashley Stafford (RCM).

Hamish Pearch (b. 1993, London, UK) previously studied at Camberwell College of Art. His work includes sculpture and performance. Selected recent exhibitions include Addams Outtake, Roaming Projects (2017), Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour, co-curated and exhibited in at J Hammond Projects (2017), Curiosites, Sans Titre (2016) and Bloomberg New Contemporaries, ICA and Primary (2015).
