Catriona Morison, the winner of the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, has signed an exclusive contract with London firm Rayfield Allied to be her representatives. She will be represented by Deborah Sanders, Director of Opera at Rayfield Allied.

Morison turned heads when she went from being the wild card finalist in the competition this summer to suddenly taking the whole entire thing. She also won the Song Prize alongside Ariunbaatar Gunbaatar.

The mezzo is also the third person in BBC Cardiff Singer of the World History to win both competitions, following Jamie Barton and Marius Brenciu.

Morison’s feats include winning the Toonkunst Oratorio Prize at the 50th edition of the Hertogenbosch Competition in Holland, debuting with the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra in 2014 and even appearing at the BBC Proms in 2013.

She has also been a member of the Wuppertal Opera where she will next showcase her talents as Maddalena in Verdi’s “Rigoletto.”
