I am thrilled to be launching the BBC Proms.
And privileged to be performing in Prom 49 – The Lost Words
Stephanie is founding a new ensemble called Orchestra Rheia, a London-based group of highly talented musicians who will give their first public performance at St Giles Cripplegate on the 31st May 2019, 7.30pm. The program will consist of Brahms’s colossal Ein Deutsches Requiem, alongside J.S. Bach’s Double Violin Concerto. We are lucky to have two hugely-talented young violinists with us to perform the Bach, Katya Tsukanova and Sara Dragan. In addition to this, Lauren Fagan, Australia’s representative for Cardiff Singer of the World 2019, and Theodore Platt, recent winner of the Lies Askonas Competition in 2018, will be joining us as the soloists for Brahms’s vocal masterpiece.
After months of planning I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be joining Petroc Trelawney on BBC Radio 3 for International Women’s Day to discuss some of my favourite women composers! Tune in at 8am on the 8th March

STEPHANIE WAS INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE LAUNCH OF JOSHUA KANE’S NEW COLLECTION
“Childress’ command of her orchestra brings verve, bite and gravity to the score’s darker moments, while exulting merrily in its racier passages, and the sheer musicality of this production is another of its strengths.”
“From the moment [Stephanie] entered the Chapel she commanded the orchestra with such poise and energy that it was truly impossible to believe she was only eighteen years of age.”
Stephanie conducted Beethoven’s 9th Symphony at Cambridge University’s St. John’s College Chapel on October 27th, 2017.
