Hilary Minford - A Primrose Seller

Hilary joined York Opera in 2004 after moving to York, since when she has been a member of the chorus, as well as singing such roles as Josephine in HMS Pinafore, and taking part in many concerts. Her love of singing started when she was young after joining the church choir. This progressed through school and university productions. Over the years Hilary has taken roles in The Mikado, The Gondoliers, Trial By Jury, and The Bartered Bride. The demands of work and family meant that, for a time, performing on stage took a back seat, during which period she sang with Rochester Choral Society, choral music being a great love. Other work includes projects run by the Ryedale Community Opera team, and other concerts, which have involved a wide range of musical styles. Hilary is a (reluctant!) chartered accountant, and works with her husband in his accountancy practice in York.
