HarrisonParrott, which has been hyperactive in Covid while others went to sleep or out of business, has added two young singers to its list.

Soprano Alexandra Lowe is a member of the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House. Tenor Valentin Thill has been Artist in Residence at Brussels’ Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, studying with José van Dam and Sophie Koch.



  • Bill says:

    Plenty of other smaller agencies still standing strong.

    • Peter says:

      Absolutely- what misleading nonsense the strap line is! Delighted to report that we (Musichall Ltd) have taken on the mezzo Kitty Whately and the costume designer Marie-Jeanne Lecca in the last few weeks and are certainly still standing!

      • Maria says:

        But got any work???? Many singers or instrumentalists have had agents in normal times, and excellent performers in the middle league of things – for not everyone can be a star.
        But not the preferred racehorse!

  • James Black says:

    James Black Management has also just taken on two new artists: Julian Henao Gonzalez (tenor) and John Savournin (bass-baritone). The former auditioned successfully in Pesaro last week and the latter is currently in rehearsal with ENO.

  • Not So Fast says:

    Rumour has it that HP is also dumping artists whom they don’t manage worldwide. Looks like some layoffs and tough times are in the pipeline…
