Salome ChungKwan Siu


Salome ChungKwan Siu, Hong Kong-born mezzo-soprano based in London, recently completed her Master of Music in Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with distinction. Mentored by renowned teachers Linda Hirst, Mary Wiegold, Andrew-Matthews Owen, and Panaretos Kyriatzidis, she was honored with the Eva Malpass Scholarship.

Salome's talent has been recognized in prestigious competitions and programs. She reached the finals of the Soloists' Competition and The Elisabeth Schumann Lieder Duo Competition and was selected as a SongEasel Young Artist with duo partner Lucas Saraiva Cunha. This year, she received the Director's Prize for Excellence in Voice and is a finalist for the Trinity Laban Gold Medal Showcase 2024.

Salome has portrayed important operatic roles, including Charlotte (Werther), Lucretia (The Rape of Lucretia) and the gender-swapped role of Ping (Turandot, produced by The Opera Makers and Ellandar at Grimeborn Festival.) She eagerly anticipates her debut as Carmen in November. Her recent concert work includes Handel's Messiah and Lili Boulanger's Faust et Hélène.

Salome is dedicated to presenting contemporary art songs. She curated the themed multimedia vocal recital “Echoes - Voices of freedom from Victorians and Us” in May 2023, featuring the new song cycle "Songs for Salome" composed by Jeffrey Joseph in 2022 and other contemporary music settings with poems by inspiring Victorian writers. Looking ahead, she is excited to continue the artistic journey by organizing the vocal-piano duo recital series “Harmonious Sehnsucht in Verse” alongside Lucas, premiering Jeffrey Joseph's new song cycle setting to the poems of British writer Lord Byron and new pieces composed by young female composer Anna Conroy.
