Accompanist & Répétiteur
Most recently, Laurence worked as pianist for Stage Left Project’s performances of Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti, in which he “accompanies the whole opera from the keyboard and sings in the vocal trio, [providing] impressive support*”. He worked as an assistant répétiteur for two terms during 2016 at the City Lit Opera School, accompanying their performances, and was invited back on a professional basis in 2017. He has accompanied for the Elizabeth Schumann Lieder Competition, various recitals, and in summer 2017 accompanied performances of Puccini’s Suor Angelica with Opera in the Meantime. In December 2017, he will be the accompanist for an Anthony Nolan charity concert, continuo player for a performance of Handel’s Messiah and accompanist for a Rotary Club charity recital with soprano, Chiara Vinci.
