Lotte Betts-Dean

Lotte Betts-Dean is supported by John and Diana Smythe 

Praised by The Guardian for her “irrepressible sense of drama and unmissable, urgent musicality”, Australian mezzo-soprano Lotte Betts-Dean is a keen concert curator and her wide-ranging repertoire encompasses contemporary music, art song, opera, early music and non-classical collaborations, with a particular passion for chamber music. Performing predominantly in the UK and Australia, Lotte has presented recitals for major festivals and as a soloist. During 2020, Lotte produced over 25 online recitals, content and recordings for organizations including Melbourne Digital Concert Hall, Bishopsgate Institute, NAXOS Records, St John’s Smith Square and BBC Radio 3. Immediately prior to the pandemic, she produced and curated the Australian Bushfire Benefit concert, showcasing over 100 Australian artists and raising over $80,000AUD for the victims of the Australian fire crisis.
