Victoria Pym (Mezzo-soprano)

Born: Derbyshire, England

The English mezzo-soprano, Victoria Pym, completed her Bachelor of Music degree in Drama and Theater Arts at the University of Birmingham. In 2014, she graduated with a Masters of Vocal Performance from the Royal College of Music, London. She studies under the vocal guidance of Tim Evans-Jones and the repertory skill of Andrew Robinson.

With a wide background in diverse aspects of operatic production, Victoria Pym is quickly becoming an exciting up-and-coming artist of great promise. In the 2013-2014 season she was heard as The Sorceress in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas with About Turn Opera, Eurydice in Gluck's Orfeo ed Eurydice with Orpheus-Opera, Satirino in Cavalli's La Calisto with Hampstead Garden Opera, as 3rd Mary/Procula's Maid in Harvey's Passion and Resurrection with the Voices of London Festival, and in scenes as Dorabella in W.A. Mozart's Così fan tutte and Nancy in Flotow's Martha with the Royal College of Music.

Victoria Pym's other operatic repertoire includes Zweite Dame in W.A. Mozart's Die Zauberflöte with Brent Opera, and Helena in Benjamin Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Governess in the composer's The Turn of the Screw, Fedra in Cavalli's L'Egisto, and Zerlina in W.A. Mozart's Don Giovanni all in scenes with the Royal College of Music, as well as Tormentilla in Ralph Vaughan Williams' The Poisoned Kiss with University of Birmingham Opera.

As a concert and choral artist Victoria Pym has appeared with the London Symphony Chorus, and City of Birmingham Symphony Chorus, and has soloed with the Musicians of the Dreaming Spires, Oxford in W.A. Mozart's Requiem and J.S. Bach's Johannes-Passion (BWV 245). She is also a founding member of The Kensingtones, a classical vocal trio. She also has worked as an actress and producer for various companies including Humanitas-Culture, Mandigo Place, and the University of Birmingham Theatre.

"Victoria Pym was the stand out of the production, marrying obvious acting talent with a clear, controlled and melodious vocal." - Deborah Klayman, The Public Review
"The talented young company tackles the score woth gusto, though special credit should go to Victoria Pym's delightfully malevolent Sorceress." - Jon Stapley, Three Weeks Review
