Meet our Twixmas Opera On The Park Vocalist - Yolanda Harding

Yolanda Harding is a young English/Finnish soprano from Dorset, where she performed locally with Dorset Opera, Broadstone Music Series, Bournemouth Aspiring Professionals and now Herne Opera. Yolanda’s passion for music, and stage performance started very young, having been a keen pianist from the age of 5, she found her calling was for the stage as a Singer-Actor. 

Before discovering opera, she performed in various plays and musicals at school and with Bournemouth Community Theatre. One of her favourite roles was Sarah in Guys and dolls at The Lighthouse Theatre. 

In 2013, Yolanda discovered the amazing versatility of operatic performance and was offered to join the chorus at Dorset Opera for their summer season of La Traviata and Der Fliegender Holländer. After this amazing experience, she decided to dedicate her education to becoming an opera singer, and in the 2 years before leaving to study music at Royal Holloway University of London, she went on to win various prizes at Bournemouth Music Festival competition, including the Maureen cup for an outstanding performance in German Lieder and First prize in the Aspiring young professionals in the summer of 2015. 

Within this last year, Yolanda has completed her diploma in operatic performance with The Associated Studios thanks to the Felicity Lott Bursary (awarded to her for excellence in performance). Yolanda has also, had the privilege to work with numerous professionals and companies within the industry such as Rosalind Plowright, Mary Hill, Jeremy Silver, Kathryn Harries, Felicity Lott, Patricia Taylor, The Royal Opera House, National Opera Studio and Opera Holland Park. This August she has been performing opera scenes in Italy with Vox Integra and currently receives tutorage from Jane Highfield.
