One of OAE’s favourite sopranos, Julia Doyle, joins Netty for tea in this jam-packed episode where she talks about unusual vocal exercises to the perils of playing the viola and keeping a tortoise in the fridge.

Having worked with the OAE for almost 20 years, soprano Julia Doyle recalls her earliest memories with us and growing up in a musical family which led to a variety of instrumental and vocal lessons. She shares her key approaches to singing and and talks about juggling between her bustling life off-stage.

Tea with Netty is the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s podcast hosted by viola player Annette Isserlis (Netty). Over a cuppa (or something a little stronger…), Netty chats with a variety of conductors, players and other guests as she ‘spills the tea’ on the side of classical music you don’t normally hear.
