Dawn Foxall and Diana Sharp met at the
Birmingham Conservatoire in '96 and, despite spending far too much time in the coffee bar, graduated
with distinction! Their solo careers have spanned opera, orchestral concerts, shows and jazz
concerts performing at such venues as the South Bank Centre, Royal Albert Hall and Wigmore Hall
(although, none compare to the vineyard in Italy).
Dawn has recorded for BBC documentaries such as 'Rome' and sung on Sony's 'Chillout' CDs. Diana
was a finalist in national and international competitions and toured nationally in opera roles (most
notably performing with three animated characters, not that they couldn't get anyone real to perform
As Sirens they performed with pianist Janine Smith and Bolshoi/ Royal Ballet star Irek
Mukhammedov at Birmingham's Symphony Hall; Festivals in Italy and Sweden; made recordings with Ty
Unwin and a DVD with BBC documentary director Jeremy Turner.
Musical comedy performances with comedy duo 'Totally Naff Tarts' led to them writing the critically
acclaimed musical comedy 'Are We There Yet' with pianist David Barnard. The show was both nominated for

November 08 at the Rosemary Branch Theatre. It was highly recommended again at Buxton Fringe 09 and
goes to Edinburgh Fringe August 09. View upcoming tour dates.
