Juliet Fraser

Juliet Fraser is a British soprano vocalist who specialises in the gnarly edges of contemporary classical music. She is internationally recognised as a committed interpreter of new music, and regularly appears as guest soloist with ensembles such as Musikfabrik, Klangforum Wien, Ensemble Modern, Remix, Talea and Quatuor Bozzini, and as a duo with Borealis artist and pianist Mark Knoop. She remains a core member of vocal ensemble EXAUDI, which she co-founded with composer and conductor James Weeks in 2002. Juliet often performs new repertoire and has worked particularly closely with composers Laurence Crane, Pascale Criton, Bernhard Lang, Cassandra Miller and Rebecca Saunders. Juliet is also Artistic Director of the festival eavesdropping in London, co-director with Newton Armstrong and Mark Knoop of all that dust – a little independent label for new music, and Programme Director of VOICEBOX – a brand-new study programme for contemporary vocal performance.
