Frances M Lynch

Frances has pursued an international career at the forefront of contemporary vocal music, specialising in Music-Theatre, Electronic Music, Opera, and Chamber Music.
However, she is also a celebrated performer of more established works, a testament to her incredible adaptability. The resulting, wide-ranging repertoire, includes music from Monteverdi to Mozart, through Holst and Schoenberg to Kurtag, Cage, Taverner and more.

She has also sung a great deal of Scottish Traditional, Pop and Rock music in both recording and live situations and has even performed with art exhibitions, including one by Tracey Emin.

During her diverse career she has worked closely with many composers, including:
Berio, Kagel, Weir, Finnissy, Viñao, Lovett, Azquime, Hoyland, Soveral, Wimhurst and Wallen.

“Frances M Lynch was both the artistic director and the remarkable protagonist: a compelling presence, and a singer uniting an extended range of controlled, contrasting timbres, steadiness of note, sure breath control, and potent, poignant phrasing.” Andrew Porter, ‘Opera’ Magazine August 2011 (Tete a Tete Festival)

"The Baghdad Monologue, written and composed by Alejandro Viñao, communicates most effectively....when her vocal power is unleashed (Frances Lynch, soprano), crying out her son's name, "Kamil", it's incredibly moving" Kelly Apter The Scotsman September 2009 (Cryptic, Traverse Theatre)
