Masami Suzuki

 

 

On the concert platform, her lifelong passion has been French melodies.  However, since moving to Europe, Masami has enthusiastically begun to explore new ventures, including a wide variety of Spanish songs.

She has appeared on TV, as a member of the vocal group Foresta, in the 'Nippon Kokoro no uta', a music programme on BS Nippon TV between 2003 and 2005. The group later toured various cities in Japan.

She moved to London in 2012, since when she has eagerly been developing her performances across the UK, Germany and Japan, studying with Yvonne Kenny, Jeremy Silver and Edwige Herchenroder.

Masami Suzuki was born in Chiba, Japan. She graduated from the Kunitachi College of Music, studying under Prof. Sachie Nakayama. After graduating she continued her studies at the Shobi Conservatoire of Music Diploma Course, and then at the Tokyo Nikikai Opera Studio.

Masami has won many prizes in Japanese professional singing competitions, including the Newcomers' Auditions of the Concert Vivant, the Judges' Award at the Les Splendeurs Music Competition, and the Incentive Award at the French Music Concours.

Her opera appearances include Papagena in Mozart's 'The Magic Flute' (at the Mobara Opera and the Toso Opera),  Micaëla in Bizet's 'Carmen' ( at the Chofu Festival), and Mimi in Puccini's 'La Bohème' ( at the Amici d'Amore Opera).

She was honoured to participate in the 'Seiji Ozawa Opera Project IX ', founded by the world famous conductor Seiji Ozawa: the project aims to foster promising young musicians.
