The Sierra Leonean soprano Pearlmira Vincent came to the Netherlands in 2003 to study Classical Singing at the Utrecht Conservatory with Eugenie Ditewig. In June 2007, Pearlmira graduated from the Bachelor program with honors and was invited into the Masters of Music Program. She finished the Master of Music Program (June 2010) with honors under tutorship of the Dutch soprano Charlotte Margiono. In addition to her studies, she has also participated in a number of Master classes by various tutors including Jon Thorsteinsson, Dobrinka Yankova, Peter Kooij, Jok di Vin and Marcel Beekman.
Pearlmira’s skills as a soloist have allowed her to work with various choirs in Sierra Leone, The Netherlands, Belgium and The United Kingdom. She has been a soloist for several projects organized by the Utrecht Conservatory in the Vredenburg Muziek Centrum. One major highlight was her performance as a soloist in “Let’s have peace please” by Henk Alkema, specially composed for Her Majesty, Queen Beatrix’s visit to the Utrecht “Dom” Cathedral.
