Zoë Jackson


Soprano Zoë Jackson is from the North-East of England and is taught by Janice Chapman and Marcus van den Akker at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. After graduating with a first-class degree with honours last year, Zoë is now in her first year of postgraduate. Following being a Head Chorister at Durham Cathedral, where she was taught by Miranda Wright, she has been a member of The Young Musician’s Programme at the Sage, Gateshead, the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and a participant of the prestigious Samling Academy.

Zoë’s love of art song has presented amazing opportunities to work with world-class artists on the concert and masterclass stage, highlights including Nicky Spence, Tobias Truniger and Joan Rodgers CBE. Opera highlights include singing the title role of Venus in John Blow’s Venus and Adonis (Samling Academy Opera) with the Dunedin Consort, Lady Billows from Britten’s Albert Herring (GSMD), and as the soprano soloist in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with the Durham Singers in Durham Cathedral. More recent performances include Susannah from Flloyd’s Susannah (GSMD Scenes), Contessa Almaviva from Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro (GSMD Scenes), as part of a Gerald Finzi song project curated by Iain Burnside, a Russian and Czech song project curated by Lada Valešová and as part of a small semi chorus for two performances of Mendelssohn’s Elijah with the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Sir Antonio Pappano. She is very excited to be joining West Green House Opera this summer for their performance of Puccini’s Suor Angelica, where she will be performing the role of Suor Osmina.

Zoë is extremely grateful for her continued financial support as a Guildhall School and Hazell Trust Scholar.
