Alice Cadman – Mezzo-soprano
Young mezzo-soprano Alice Cadman, currently performs as a soloist regularly at concerts, weddings, recitals and events across the UK; as part of a duo with her baritone husband, Josh Cadman, and as a soprano or alto for session and recording work.
Now based in West London, Alice studied in Manchester, recently gaining a First Class Honours degree from the Royal Northern College of Music, under the tutelage of Louise Winter. Alice continues to receive vocal tuition and musicianship training as a recipient of the Elizabeth Eagle-Bott Memorial Award, alongside music coaching through the support of the Webster & Davidson Trust.
Alice is a keen interpreter of song and recently enjoyed performing a recital for the Treasury Music Society in the Churchill Room on Whitehall. Alice has performed at such prestigious venues as the Royal Albert Hall and the Birmingham Symphony Hall and has competed in a variety of festivals including Jersey International Choir Festival and Llangollen International Eisteddfod.
Born in Leicestershire, Alice, née Gildea, began vocal tuition at the age of thirteen alongside building a varied musical education as a member of the Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra and various choirs and ensembles. Having won the Matthew Fulham Bursary for Young Musicians in her hometown to fund her auditions, Alice was fortunate enough to receive an entrance scholarship upon auditioning at the RNCM, where she began her studies for a Bachelor of Music (Hons) degree, initially with Stuart MacIntyre. During her time at the RNCM, Alice was a member of the chorus in both Donizetti’s ‘L’elisir d’amore’, and in Holst’s ‘Savitri’, along with playing the roles of ‘Clo Clo’ in Lehar’s ‘The Merry Widow’ and the ‘Nurse Maid’ in Kurt Weill’s ‘Street Scene’.
Alice’s repertoire ranges from song, to opera favourites to classic musical theatre songs. Alice enjoys working with requests to create a personal touch; from your dream moment as you walk down the aisle, to a selection of beautiful Lieder and love songs during a dinner or drinks reception.
