Rosie Cameron is a soprano and an aspiring musicologist from Rostrevor, County Down. She is currently undertaking the MA in Performance and Musicology degree at Maynooth University where she studies voice with Kathryn Smith. Her thesis, supervised by Prof. Fiona M. Palmer, explores the profile of the oratorio soprano in the British Marketplace (1840s–1950s). Rosie graduated with a first-class BMus degree from Maynooth University in 2023 and she was also awarded the Third Year BMus Prize for the highest mark. A keen choral singer, she performed with the Ulster Youth Chamber Choir at the 2018 BBC Proms in the Park at Titanic Slipways, broadcast on BBC1. In August 2023, she was awarded the William Lauder Scholarship with the Charles Wood Singers where she performed in broadcasts on BBC Radio Ulster and BBC Radio 3. In March 2024, she was a finalist and placed second in the Charles Wood Junior Song Competition held in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh. Rosie has also participated in masterclasses led by Sir Thomas Allen, Paul Farrington, Sharon Carty, and the late Kathryn Harries OBE. In Maynooth, she has performed with the Maynooth University Chamber Choir, and she is a current member of the Maynooth University Choral Society with whom she has performed choral works including Haydn’s Creation and the Fauré and Verdi Requiems. Having developed an interest in plainchant during her undergraduate studies, Rosie is also a member of the specialist all-female ensemble Schola Gregoriana Maynooth
