Ami Walsh Finland

 

Ann-Marie Walsh was born in Finland and has been living in England since 2003. She began
her studies in Finland but was accepted to Dartington College of Arts to begin her degree.
During this time she was commissioned to perform a series of new vocal compositions by
Matthew Ratcliffe and was in demand for work as a soloist. Whilst studying she also won
several local festivals with her performances of Lieder, operatic arias and English art song.
She continued her studies with Eileen Price whilst being a requested soloist and lead vocal
tutor for the county of Lincolnshire. Her current vocal tutor is Jill Bush with whom she has
currently been for the past 3 years. Her work with Thrapston Opera has seen her as Suzuki
in Madama Butterfly in 2015, Olga in Eugene Onegin in 2017 and Flora in La Traviata in
2018. As part of Peterborough Opera she has fulfilled several roles such as Mercedes in
Carmen in 2015, Despina in Cosi fan Tutte in 2016 and in the same year taking on Queen
Elizabeth in Merrie England. Her role in Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera as the sorceress Ulrica
was described as ‘blood-curdling which was right for the part with a mezzo-soprano voice
which easily rode over the orchestra’. In 2018 she had the opportunity to perform the role of
Stephano with Peterborough Opera as a concert version. Her concert commitments have
included the prestigious Reform Club in London and other venues nationally in England. In
April she made her debut in America, performing as a soloist in the renowned Carnegie Hall,
