Soprano Opera Singer UK Cheryl Brendish

English born soprano Cheryl Brendish is known for her ability to combine beautiful lyrical singing with real stage presence and theatrical ability.  Based in Cornwall, Cheryl regularly performs throughout the South West in recitals, concerts, guest appearances and on the operatic stage.

Cheryl was destined to be a performer from a very young age - regularly testing her lungs to maximum capacity to attract maximum attention, thus perfecting her 'Diva' status!  It is said that she sang before she could speak; at the tender age of seven, with a broken arm, Cheryl tasted her first success winning her class in the Mansfield Music Festival, England, singing Thomas Arne's "Where the bee sucks" adjudicated by Constance Shacklock, OBE.

Having experienced success, Cheryl wanted more! Relentlessly requesting singing lessons (even sacrificing her idea of keeping a horse at the bottom of the garden in the shed!) Cheryl soon auditioned with Pamela Cook, MBE and her world-renowned girls choir, Cantamus.  Cheryl sang with Cantamus for five years and has very fond memories and several extremely interesting stories of those formative years - performing in international competitions in Poland, Switzerland, Vienna and Wales.
