Laurence is currently an ABRSM Vocal Scholar at the Royal College of Music in London, under the tutelage of tenor Timothy Evans-Jones and pianist Simon Lepper. He is the winner of the 2018 Kathleen Ferrier Society Bursary for Young Singers and will compete in the 2019 Wigmore Hall/Independent Opera International Song Competition.

Laurence began his formal training as a chorister with the Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum, and won the title of BBC Radio 2 Young Chorister of the Year in 2009, subsequently making his solo debut at the Royal Albert Hall. He appears as treble soloist on a number of recordings, including the Grammy nominated album, Handel’s L’Allegro, Penseroso ed il Moderato with the Gabrieli Consort and Paul McCreesh.

Among his recent engagements is Peter Sellars’ staging of Bach’s St. John Passion with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Sir Simon Rattle and his Mass in B Minor at St. John Smith’s Square with the London Handel Players; Handel’s Esther at Wigmore Hall as part of the London Handel Festival and Messiah at Nevill Holt Opera; Mozart’s Requiem at St. Martin-in-the Fields as part of the Brandenburg Choral Festival and Mendelssohn’s Elijah with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Masaaki Susuki.

He has appeared in masterclasses with Dame Sarah Connolly, Roderick Williams, Kathryn Harries and James Gilchrist and has given recitals at the Akademie der Künste, Berlin and Cheltenham Festival.
