Laetitia Gerards (1993) started playing the cello at the age of five. At thirteen she was admitted to the Young Musicians Academy at the conservatory of Tilburg. During her musical theatre studies at the conservatory, Laetitia developed a passion for singing and performing on stage. In 2013 Laetitia decided to focus exclusively on classical singing and started her studies at the conservatory in Amsterdam with mezzo soprano Sasja Hunnego. In May 2016 Laetitia graduated for her bachelor’s degree summa cum laude. Currently Laetitia is studying with Magreet Honig.
