About Penelope

photos by Geert Allegaert

Penelope Turner is a versatile singer with a large range and an expressive voice capable of producing many different shades and colours of sound. Her programmes put great emphasis on the importance of text and context, and there is always a strong dramatic element and usually a good dose of humour.

In ensemble she specializes in early (medieval, renaissance, baroque) and contemporary music.

Recent solo projects highlight her interest in mixing genres: classical with jazz and film; contemporary with early music.

Penelope also arranges and composes, and in March 2020 she began Project Hildegard, a set of compositions inspired by the music of Hildegard of Bingen.
