Marina Pienaar

South African soprano Marina Pienaar made her official operatic debut at the Stellenbosch Woordfees in 2018, where she performed the title role of Purcell’s The Fairy Queen in a collaboration between Cape Town Opera and Stellenbosch University.

During her undergraduate studies she performed in numerous concert venues in South Africa in operas, galas and recitals. She graduated cum laude from her Bachelor in Music studies at the University of Stellenbosch under the guidance of Lauren Dasappa.

Currently Marina is studying for a Master of Performance in Vocal Studies under the guidance of Janis Kelly at the Royal College of Music in London, where she was fortunate to be awarded a scholarship supported by the Charles Branchini Estate, and is a listed singer on the prestigious Josephine Baker Trust.

Apart from performance Marina is also passionate about community engagement projects. During 2018 she was involved with various community engagement projects in Cloetesville near Stellenbosch and also toured to different regions in South Africa to conduct music workshops with Morgan Szymanski’s outreach project PRISMA.
