Lana English

Started singing at a young age in the church choir and at the age of 17 she made her solo debut. In 1993 she started part-time singing lessons with Vetta Wise and began singing in the ad hoc chorus at CAPAB. After attending a master class with Wendy Fine, she was recommended to Alvon Collison and this resulted in her starring in Showtime and Showtime 2001 at Artscape.

In June 2002 she began to sing as a permanent member of the Cape Town Opera Vocal Ensemble. Lana has also sung with the SA Navy Band and for various government functions and heads of state, as well as prominent leaders, locally and abroad, most notably for Archbishop Desmond Tutu's 70th birthday celebrations at his residence.

At the end of October 2003, Lana auditioned for South African production of "The Phantom of the Opera" and was offered the leading role of Christine Daae. She is still actively involved in the New Apostolic Church choir which she loves.
