Hugo Brady


Winner of the 2022 Junior Kathleen Ferrier Competition, tenor Hugo Brady studies at the Royal College of Music, under the tutelage of Russell Smythe, as the Victor and Lilian Hochhauser Scholar. He is also supported by the Josephine Baker Trust, and is now a Samling Artist.

Brady began singing aged eight, as a member of the Royal Opera House’s Youth Opera Company, singing in the children’s choruses of operatic favourites such as La Bohème and Carmen. Since then, Brady has studied at the Centre for Young Musicians, winning first prize at both the New Talent British International Youth Music Competition and the Louis Watt Memorial Competition during his time there. He was most recently awarded the Prix de l’Académie de la ville de Ciboure at the Festival Ravel in Saint-Jean-de-Luz. As a tenor, he as appeared as a soloist with the Vache Baroque Festival, Messiah with Nevill Holt Opera and the Manchester Camerata, and at Barbican Hall with the LSSO. He has appeared in masterclasses with Roderick Williams, Bernarda Fink, and Veronique Gens, among others. For Brunswick Vocal Arts, he has recently performed a solo recital with pianist Simon Lepper. An eclectic appetite for repertoire, Brady is currently fascinated by the songs of Dowland, Schumann, Poulenc, Britten, Aboulker and Frances-Hoad.
