Mimi Doulton is a soprano of British-Pakistani origin, with a particular interest in contemporary opera and song. She is a Park Lane Group Young Artist, an Opera Prelude Artist and a Leeds Lieder Young Artist. In 2017/18 she was the vocal scholar at Fondation Royaumont Voix Nouvelles, won third place at the Music Club of London Competition, and was a finalist at the Dean and Chadlington Competition.

Mimi has created roles in Wake with Birmingham Opera Company (directed by Graham Vick CBE); Blue Electric and Schutzwall at Tête a Tête. She has developed new operas with the Royal Opera, Mahogany Opera Group and Snape Maltings. More traditional roles include Mabel in the Pirates of Penzance with Merry Opera Company, and title roles in Bastien und Bastienne and Gluck’s Orfeo ed Eurydice.

As a recitalist she has premiered works at venues including Wigmore Hall, Club Inégales and Fondation Royaumont. She was part of the London Symphony Orchestra's 'This is Rattle' Festival in 2017/18, and performed Copland's 12 poems of Emily Dickinson in the Barbican Hall as part of the orchestra's Bernstein Centenary celebrations.

Forthcoming plans include covering in Gerald Barry’s The Intelligence Park for the Royal Opera/Music Theatre Wales, and her debut at the Southbank Centre Purcell Room with Park Lane Group.

She graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with distinction in 2018, where her studies were supported by the Guildhall School Trust, the Humphrey Richardson Taylor Trust, the Mario Lanza Educational Foundation, the Charity of Mary Barnes, and three private donors. Previously, Mimi was the Helen Hudson choral scholar at King's College London, graduating with first-class honours in Music and Languages in 2015.

Dominic Degavino grew up in Milton Keynes, and started studying the piano when he was six years old. Soon after, he gained a place at Chetham’s School of Music, where he studied for eight years, followed by studies as an ABRSM Scholar at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, all under the tutelage of Helen Krizos.

In recent years, Dominic has achieved considerable competition success, including winning the RNCM Gold Medal Competition, 3rd Prize at the Concours International de Piano d'Epinal in France, the Foundazione Antonio Carlo Monzino prize at the Imola International Piano Awards, first prize in the Orpheus Musician of the Year Competition and prizes at the Brant International Piano Competition and Bromsgrove International Musicians' Competition. Recently, he was also the keyboard section winner of both the Tunbridge Wells International Young Concert Artists Competition and the 2017 Royal Over-Seas League Arts Competition.

He has performed concerts in venues across the United Kingdom and beyond, including performances at the Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre, London as a Park Lane Group artist, as well as at St Martin-in-the-fields, London, the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester and the Lichfield and Edinburgh festivals, among others. Concerto appearances include performances with the Manchester Camerata and RNCM Symphony Orchestra, and he has taken part in masterclasses with eminent pianists such as Imogen Cooper, Lang Lang, Richard Goode, Peter Frankl and John O'Conor.

Dominic is also a keen chamber music pianist and accompanist, and his work in this field has won him numerous prizes, including the Elsie Thurston Prize, Paganini prize and the Norman George Violin Scholarship at RNCM (with violinist Tom Mathias). He also enjoys playing jazz, and has appeared regularly with the RNCM Big Band, with whom he has broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

Dominic is now continuing his studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London with tutors Charles Owen and Noriko Ogawa. He is generously supported by The Countess of Munster Musical Trust, Help Musicians UK and the South Square Trust.
