Catriona Morison, from Edinburgh, was the first British winner of the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, in 2017, taking both the Main Prize and the Song Prize (jointly). 

She studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and at the University of the Arts in Berlin, graduating with a Masters in Opera with Distinction and continues to study with Prof. Siegfried Gohritz of the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt in Weimar. Before that she won the “Toonkunst Oratorio Prize” at the 50th International Vocal Competition’s-Hertogenbosch in 2014 and reached the final of the 9th International Hilde Zadek Competition in Vienna in 2015.

Catriona took part in the Samling Artist programme for outstanding young singers in 2013, and in 2015 joined the Young Singers Project of the Salzburg Festival, making her debut there in Richard Strauss’ “Der Rosenkavalier” with the Vienna Philharmonic under Franz Wesler-Möst. The following season saw her become a member of the Thüringer Opera Studio, and in 2016/17 she joined the ensemble of Oper Wuppertal.

“Catriona Morison is a great discovery, a singer with great charisma and simply angelically guided mezzo-soprano.” Andreas Falentin, Concerti
