Biography

Brianna works as both a singer and researcher and recently completed her PhD research on the 18th-century castrato singer Venanzio Rauzzzini and his students funded by the University of Glasgow College of Arts Internship scholarship. In 2016, she gave a talk about her research at the sold out event, TEDxGlasgow, which is a locally organized event licensed by the famous TED organisation. She has sung in master classes and private lessons with early music specialists including Emma Kirkby, Nicholas Clapton and Robert Toft and regularly performs lecture-recitals at conferences and events. Her research interests span a wide variety of topics and in September 2016 she has organised an interdisciplinary workshop at the Glasgow Women’s Library which explored ‘Women and Education in the long 18th century’. Brianna was granted The Ross Fund from the University of Glasgow to allow her to do a one month research project examining the Symonds sheet music collection at the Sydney Living Museums. She will continue to research the role of music education, when she embarks on a research project at Chawton House in April 2017 supported by the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Visiting Fellowship Award.
