Miss Aoife obtained a degree and a Masters in Music Performance from the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama in Dublin before continuing her training at the National Opera Studio in London. She taught music for a short time before she joined the Glyndebourne chorus in 2009. Since then she has enjoyed playing roles such as Gretel/Hansel and Gretel with Northern Ireland Opera and Carrie Pipperidge/Carousel for Opera North. A regular at English National Opera, she once played a Martian in a children’s opera version of Oliver Jeffers’ The Way Back Home. She has toured extensively in recital with Irish classical music – even as far as Carnegie Hall, New York. She has recently returned to the classroom in her finest role to date: PGP’s music teacher.
