Meet WNO

Claire Hampton


At 14 years of age, Claire joined the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and later studied at the Royal Northern College of Music. She worked as a freelance singer until joining WNO in 2002.

Claire’s personal highlights at WNO so far have been performing the role of Papagena in The Magic Flute, Jana in Jenůfa and walking the red carpet as Marilyn Monroe.

Away from WNO, Claire is enjoying being a new mum to her three children, walking her dog, and thanking the Lord for coffee!
