Soprano Juliet Fraser specialises in the gnarly edges of contemporary classical music. Internationally recognised as a committed interpreter of new music, she regularly appears as a guest soloist with ensembles such as Musikfabrik, Klangforum Wien, Ensemble Modern, Remix, Talea and Quatuor Bozzini, and as a duo with pianist Mark Knoop. She remains a core member of EXAUDI vocal ensemble, which she co-founded with composer/conductor James Weeks in 2002. Juliet is an active commissioner of new repertoire and has worked particularly closely with composers Laurence Crane, Pascale Criton, Bernhard Lang, Cassandra Miller and Rebecca Saunders. Juliet is artistic director of the eavesdropping festival in London, co-director of all that dust, a little independent label for new music, and programme director of VOICEBOX, a study programme for advanced singers. She was recently awarded an honorary Doctorate of Music by Southampton University.
