Clare McCaldin is a British mezzo-soprano noted for opera, song recital and producing striking lyric stage work with her own company, McCaldin Arts.
Vivienne, Clare’s latest show with McCaldin Arts attracted fantastic reviews for its premiere performances. 2015 is the 100th anniversary year of the wedding of Vivienne Haigh-Wood to TS Eliot and McCaldin Arts hopes to mark this event with a performance of Vivienne.
Clare’s recording of Hugh Wood’s Laurie Lee Songs with Iain Burnside (piano) for NMC is part of a recital disc also featuring Roderick Williams (baritone). Watch this space for a release date in 2015.
