Corinne Bailey


When did you join the orchestra?
I joined in 2011.

Favourite ENO opera?
Favourite opera is Satyagraha by Philip Glass.

How did you start?
When I was 9 years old my Mum took me to the local brass teacher and I tried out all of the brass instruments. The french horn was the only one I didn’t sound like a drainpipe on, so the decision was an easy one!

Passion outside of opera?
Outside of opera I love walking in the Derbyshire Dales, reading and drinking Champagne.
