Jacqueline Barron

Soprano Jacqueline Barron studied at the Royal College of Music and began her professional singing career soon after graduating when she was invited to join international vocal group, The Swingle Singers. Since then her busy career has encompassed everything from West End musicals (The Phantom of the Opera) to contemporary repertoire (40th anniversary performance of Stockhausen’s Stimmung at London’s Barbican in 2017). Concert highlights include the first ‘live’ performance (2015) of Disney’s Frozen (Royal Albert Hall) singing the Kulning solos, a role she reprised in 2016 with the CBSO at Birmingham Symphony Hall. She works extensively in all of London’s main studios, recording incidental music for radio & television and the soundtracks for over two hundred Hollywood films, including Lord of the Rings, Beauty and the Beast and the Harry Potter films. Her solo voice can be heard on War Machine (released on Netflix in 2017) starring Brad Pitt. She has made many broadcasts for BBC Radio 2, including star singer on ‘Friday Night is Music Night’. Jacqueline is much in demand as a singing teacher (Ithaca College, New York, Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts) and has worked as a vocal coach for the RSC.
