Alice Bishop

Alice Bishop graduated in music from the University of Surrey (BMus (Hons) and completed the Diploma in Performance Studies at Abbey Opera and Birkbeck College.  Songs and song recitals have always been at the centre of her interest in singing and she has given many well-received recitals in and round London including recently a return visit to Guildford URC Music Society.  Other recent solo engagements have included Strauss’  Four Last Songs , Handel’s Dixit Dominus, Mozart’s Ch’io mi scordi di te?, Bruckner’s Mass in F Minor,  Beethoven's 9th Symphony, Handel Opera Arias,  Haydn’s Little Organ Mass,  Rutter’s Requiem, Mass of the Children and Feel the Spirit, Vivaldi’s Gloria and a recording of a new oratorio by Joe St Johanser. 

Ryoko Izutsu

Ryoko Izutsu was born in Kobe, Japan, surrounded by beautiful mountains and sea.

She graduated top of her year from Osaka College of Music before falling victim to a repetitive strain injury. However, the injury proved a blessing in disguise when she discovered the Alexander Technique. After studying with Lucas Lorenzi and Junko Kasahara in Kyoto for three years, she completely cured herself, as well as realising the expressive potential that Alexander Technique can give her as a musician. She moved to the UK to study at the Guildhall with Nelly Ben-Or, the recognised master of both Alexander Technique and piano performance and completed her post-graduate course in 2011.

She was chosen for the competitive Top Graduates Concert by Osaka College of Music, and performed in the prestigious "Group Young Tone" concert series several times. She has appeared as a professional in the Naniwa Art Festival, the Osaka Artist Association concert series, and the Kyoto International Music Maestro concert series. She was invited to perform for Nelly Ben-or Trust several times. At the Guildhall school of Music & Drama, she had a fantastic opportunity to take part in Faure Master class given by Roy Howat.

On top of a varied performance schedule in venues throughout her native Japan she enjoys taking part in charity concerts for the aged, for children, and for the less fortunate. She most enjoys introducing the joy of classical music to those who are new to it.

St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, also known as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Holborn), is an Anglican church in the City of London. It is located on Holborn Viaduct, almost opposite the Old Bailey. In medieval times it stood just outside ("without") the now-demolished old city wall, near the Newgate. It has been a living of St John's College, Oxford, since 1622.
