Suzi was due to be Choral Director for The Grange Festival‘s community opera – Monster in the Maze by Jonathan Dove. However, due to the Covid19 pandemic, live performances have been postponed. In place of the 2020 performance, the community performers came together digitally to create a film of an extract from the finale.
Create and Sing Carmen, the Royal Opera House’s dramatic singing programme for schools, launched nationally in 2017. The programme was developed by the Royal Opera House with an artistic team comprising Hazel Gould (writer and director), Pete Letanka (composer), Suzi Zumpe (vocal director).
As part of the celebrations for the centenary of Bernstein’s birth, Southbank Centre staged his Mass at the Royal Festival Hall in April 2018. Suzi auditioned, directed and trained the choruses and treble soloists for this work, preparing them for the performances.
Suzi is a regular contributor to ENO Baylis’s Youth Company for 14 – 18 year olds.
