After many years abroad in England, Switzerland and Australia, Nancy Long has only recently returned to her home town of Baltimore.  She has had a full and varied solo career which has taken the mezzo-soprano to the major concert platforms and festivals in Europe and America.  She began her career in the 1970s singing with groups such as the New York Pro Musica, the New York Ensemble for Early Music, Musica Reservata (London) and the Huelgas Ensemble (Belgium). She has sung as a soloist with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Sinfonietta (Simon Rattle conducting), the Bournemouth Sinfonietta, and with members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. She sang the Sorceress in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, with Dame Janet Baker as Dido, with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, directed by Phillip Ledger. She has also performed with the Raglan Baroque Players, and the Ensemble Modern, Frankfurt (Paul Daniel conducting). Nancy made the first recording of a work by Alejandro Viñao with three other soloists from Singcircle. It was performed in Norway, Finland, Poland, Sweden, and in a Promenade Concert in London. This group also made a recording of Stockhausen's Stimmung.

 

Besides being a founding member of Singcircle, Miss Long sang and recorded with the select six soloists of the London Sinfonietta Voices for many years, performing and recording many world premieres, including composers such as Berio and Birtwistle. This group was the artist-in-residence at Harvard University in the 1990’s. In 1984 she gave a well-received recital 'debut' at the Wigmore Hall, London and has given many recitals in England, Switzerland, Australia and Maryland.  Nancy has performed as soloist in the Aspen Festival, Innsbruck Festival, Flanders Festival of Belgium, Utrecht Festival, Festival in Erice, Sicily, The Indianapolis Early Music Festival, Bay View Music Festival (Michigan), Three Choirs Festival, and music festivals in Lisbon, Barcelona, Cheltenham, Bath, Windsor and Edinburgh. She has also recorded with the New York Pro Musica and the Huelgas Ensemble. She was a founding member of the New York Ensemble of Early Music and traveled all over America as a soloist with this group. Her concerts with the group Tragicomedia included the lnnsbruck Festival and performances of operas by Monteverdi and Francesca Caccini in Bremen, with Nigel Rogers and Harry van der Kamp. In spring 1994 they gave a concert in Geneva for a concert of Italian monody and English song of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Her solo CD was the first recording made by the then new ensemble in 1988 and was well received by the press.

 

In recent years in Sydney, Nancy was soloist in several Messiah performances, Bach’s St. John’s Passion and his Magnificat, Oratorio de Noel by Saint-Saens, Mozart’s Requiem, and masses by Hadyn and Mozart.

Nancy's teaching career began as a graduate Fellow at the University of Maryland and continued at the American University in Washington, D.C., before going to New York and then settling in London. There she built up a considerable private teaching practice while also giving singing lessons at the London Early Music Centre between 1978 and 1982. In 1983 she began eleven years of teaching at the Centre de Musique Ancienne and the Conservatoire Populaire in Geneva, Switzerland, moving there with her family in 1987.  Returning to Britain in 1994, she spent eight years teaching choral scholars at Trinity College, Cambridge University. There have been master classes, lectures, and workshops in the U.S.A. and Europe.   Along with Stephen Stubbs and Emma Kirkby, Nancy was invited to perform and give masterclasses by the Hilliard Ensemble at their festival in Sussex, England. She has also given classes at the Flanders Festival (Belgium), the Utrecht Early Music Festival (Holland), the Erice Festival (Sicily), and in Switzerland. In Sydney, Australia, Nancy had a teaching studio consisting mainly of young aspiring professional singers and professional singers, and was an adjunct voice teacher at the University of New South Wales!

Now, in the Greater-Washington-Metro region, Nancy teaches and lectures.  Please reach out to find out more!
