A Day In The Life of International Soprano Singer Lisa Carlisle ...A Professional Classical Singer For Hire

London based soprano singer, Lisa Carlisle, spent 3 weeks in April 2011 on the small, friendly and beautiful island of Grand Cayman in the Caribbean, performing at two concerts. The first, a Royal Wedding Day Celebration Feast, followed by Music From Movies And Broadway with the Cayman National Choir and Orchestra. Lisa shares her international trip with us in her a day in the life blog.

Although I regularly perform in the UK, I also sing at overseas events. Following a performance there last year, I was booked to fly out to Grand Cayman in the Caribbean for three weeks to perform in two concerts. The first concert was the “Royal Wedding Day Celebration Feast”, and the second was “Music from Movies and Broadway” with the Cayman National Choir and Orchestra.

In addition, I was asked to run singing workshops for young people and a charitable organisation on the island. The island is a small and friendly place with an ex-pat community from the UK. I met some lovely new friends there last time and was excited to see them and to work with some of the excellent musicians on the island. This is not a typical day but gives an idea of what’s involved in the course of an international trip.

That’s enough of that...back to work! Seriously, as lovely as all of this was, it is the privilege of choosing and singing beautiful music that I love most about my job, so rain or shine I am happy to be singing wherever in the world I am.
