Marrianne Town Smith


Lyric-dramatic soprano Marrianne Town Smith started to sing in 2007 as a hobby and distraction from a fast-paced marketing management role. In 2015 she successfully auditioned for a Postgraduate Vocal Studies Programme at Trinity Laban and graduated with distinction in 2017. Most recently Marrianne performed the role of Abigaille in Verdi’s Nabucco and was soprano soloist in Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem and Handel’s Messiah in Bart’s Great Hall London. She has also performed many roles in scenes at Trinity Laban and other educational courses including Lady Billows Albert Herring, Ariadne Ariadne auf Naxos and roles studied include Lady Macbeth Macbeth, Sieglinde Die Walküre, Leonora La Forza del destino. Marrianne's 2022 season includes an orchestral concert with St Paul’s Sinfonia of Chausson’s La Poeme de l’amour et de la mer.
