Natalie Burch is currently a fellow of accompaniment at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she gained her masters with distinction and continues her studies with Eugene Asti, Andrew West and Alisdair Hogarth. Previously, Natalie graduated with first class honours from King's College London.
Recent and future performance highlights include Brahms’ Liebeslieder and Stephen Hough’s Other Love Songs at the Wigmore Hall, Britten Canticle IV at the Red House, musically directing Rigoletto at Dartington Hall, a recital with tenor James Way for Sarah Walker CBE and recitals at St James’ Piccadilly and St George’s Hanover Square.
