We have the greatest sadness in announcing the death of former Midland Opera principal soprano, Lynda Shepherd. For very many years, Lynda and husband Bob were active members of Midland opera (as Midland Music Makers), with Lynda singing some of the company's most memorable soprano roles. Lynda was born in Birmingham, started singing opera at school, and after a short interlude in light musicals, she decided that grand opera was for her. Since that time she had played leading roles in over 25 different
operas with Midland Music Makers, Royal Sutton Opera, and Consensus. Amongst her favourite roles were
Desdemona in ‘Otello’, title roles in ‘Gioconda’ and ‘Aida’, Violetta in ‘La Traviata’, Marguerite in ‘Faust’ and Nedda
in ‘Pagliacci’. Lynda and Bob's contribution to the group over many years has been immeasurable. She is greatly missed by all who knew her.
