‘If I cannot fly, let me sing.’ – Stephen Sondheim
Femme Lunatique Productions creates, programmes and records new art music. Projects range from bespoke concert and site-specific performances, devising and producing recordings, to conducting educational workshops and presentations about the health benefits of singing. Special emphasis is given to the work of women composers and creators, and the power of the female voice.
In 2016, Femme Lunatique Productions was named Runner Up to the Women in the Arts Award at the Kent Women in Business awards, and in 2017, our CD One Art was named as a winner in the Hawai’i Public Radio International Art Song Contest (winner’s concert broadcast in 2018.)
‘One Art is a rare treat – The atmospheric duet ‘Nocturne’ and the three Elizabeth Bishop poems composed by Paula Kimper are personal favourites.’
As well as the CD, One Art has also been premiered as a monodrama, song recital, and staged song cycle.
‘One Art is the story of American poet Elizabeth Bishop: successful, gay and prone to drink. Soprano Laure Meloy leads us through letters, readings and a handful of songs. It’s an extraordinary performance, gripping for Meloy’s freshness and nuance, as if the whole thing were unscripted.’ – The Stage
Teaching, Workshops and Presentations:
As a lecturer in voice and singing at music colleges and universities and as a private voice teacher, Ms. Meloy practices a wholistic technique, treating every student as an individual and emphasising healthy use and care for the vocal instrument. She promotes the belief that singing is an innate ability, and an essential part of physical and mental health. In addition to training aspiring professional singers, Ms. Meloy runs singing workshops for older people, community groups, and teaches one-to-one singing lessons with amateur singers in all genres.
