Let's Celebrate


Susan Bullock, Class of 1977

Susan is one of the world’s most sought-after British dramatic sopranos and was awarded a CBE to recognise her achievements in 2014.

In November 2018 Susan returned to CHS where students from Year 7 through to Sixth Form interviewed her with questions covering a whole range of topics including singing techniques, favourite directors, how to look after your voice, pre-performance rituals or superstitions, and the practicalities of singing in costumes. After stories of singing in front of the Queen, costume malfunctions at the Proms, and what it was like to sing at the closing ceremony of the Olympics, Susan finished the afternoon by performing two stunning pieces. A lied called “Zueignung” by Richard Strauss, and an aria from the opera Gianni Schicchi by Puccini, “O mio babbino caro”.
