Milo is studying for a Masters in Performance at the Royal College of Music with Peter Savidge and Simon Lepper. Last year, whilst studying for his Postgraduate Diploma, he appeared in his own devised piece, Fragments, at the RCM, looking at the way we remember the First World War; he covered the role of Monsù Traversen in La Gazzetta, the RCM summer opera;he played Guglielmo, Argenio, Count Almaviva and Ko-Ko in RCM opera scenes; sang the baritone solos in a workshop performance of the St. Matthew Passion; and he gave the UK première of Philip Bracanin's song cycle, Throw Me a Heaven Around a Child. During his first term he appeared as Figaro in Hampstead Garden Opera's The Marriage of Figaro, and as a soloist in a concert perfomrance of Dido and Aeneas at St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
The year concluded with a recital of music by Schubert, Finzi, Fauré and Priaulx Rainier, before a summer of travel in Europe working on French, German and Italian. Milo took part in summer schools in Puglia and the South of France, working on song and appearing in opera scenes directed by Mary King (Italy) and James Bonas (France), conducted by Nicholas Bosworth and Mary Hill. Before the new term starts, he will appear as Baron Douphol in La Traviata at the Rye Festival.
Milo’s first encounter with professional singing came at the age of fourteen, when he played the third boy in Glyndebourne’s 2004 production of Die Zauberflöte. He then moved on to Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where his recitals included Schumann's Dichterliebe and a collection of Shakespeare settings. He was a member of the Emmanuel College choir in his first year, touring Boston and appearing as a soloist in the Fauré and Mozart Requiems.
