Marianne Mathy Scholarship –
Winners of 'The Mathy'

2014 WINNER

Isabella Moore

SOPRANO, 23, NZ

Isabella has recently completed a Masters degree in Advanced Vocal Studies with Distinction, at the Wales International Academy of Voice. She gained a Bachelor of Music degree and Postgraduate Diploma (Voice Performance) from the New Zealand School of Music at Victoria University. Isabella plans to participate in several major competitions in 2014-15 and hopes to continue her studies in Europe through joining a Young Artist Programme.

Isabella's opera work includes the lead role of Gulnara in II Corsaro (Verdi). She has taken part in MasterClasses with artists such as Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and Richard Bonynge, and has attended the New Zealand Opera School summer programme.

Her achievements in recent years include winning numerous regional singing competitions across New Zealand: most recently the Dame Malvina Major Foundation Christchurch Aria competition and Hamilton Competition's Premier Vocal Award. Isabella was a Finalist in the 2014 ROSL Music Competition in London and is a Finalist for NZ's 2014 Lexus Song Quest.

Isabella loves Verdi and Massenet, of whom she says, 'I wish more of Massenet's operas were put on at opera houses these days'.
