Scottish Soprano Alison McNeill began her musical career as a first study violinist at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's Junior Department before making her singing debut with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra in Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall at the age of sixteen. She graduated in 2013 with a Masters in Performance from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where she studied with Wilma McDougall under a Scholarship from the RCS Trust. Alison has made many solo appearances throughout the UK, Holland, Spain, Austria, America, Japan and Mexico.

 Alison has a particular passion for the research and performance of Spanish Song and was one of eight singers selected from across the world to study the interpretation of this genre with the renowned mezzo-soprano Teresa Berganza. Alison is the winner of the 2012 Andres Segovia Prize for Spanish Song (Spain) and was the first non-native Spanish speaker to win this award. She was selected to perform works by Spain's leading composer Anton Garcia Abril in the Ateneo (Madrid) and in Madrid's famous "Clasicos en Verano" Chamber Music Festival which was recorded by Spanish National Radio. Alison has just returned from Mexico where she gave a series of concerts with Mexican musicians La Camaraderia.
