Harriet Fraser began to perform as a soloist while working as a family doctor in central London. Some years ago, she set medicine aside and turned to singing full-time. Now a resident of Los Angeles, California, Harriet is in demand as an oratorio and recital soloist. Recent performances include Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Haydn’s Creation, Mozart’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, and Bach’s Magnificat and St Matthew Passion at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, under conductor Grant Gershon. A performer with the Los Angeles Master Chorale, as chorister and soloist, Harriet has worked under conductors Grant Gershon, Esa Pekka Salonen and Gustavo Dudamel amongst many others. Harriet has performed regular solo recitals with the Con Gioia Early Music Ensemble, has performed with the Millennium Consort Singers and at the UnSung Concert series, in her wish to promote the works of living local composers. In 2019 Harriet performed her first concert with the Los Angeles Composers Collective.
She performs regularly with the European Concert Trio, comprising repertoire for soprano, clarinet and piano. They have performed all over Southern California since their formation in early 2015, and won the prestigious Beverly Hills International Competition. As a passionate interpreter of the oratorio repertoire, Harriet has performed all of the standard repertoire and many more contemporary works, all over the UK, in Los Angeles and Beijing, China. For her next oratorio solo appearance, Harriet will be performing Beethoven’s Mass in C in Los Angeles.
