Previously Thea attended Wells Cathedral School where she was a Specialist Musician and Vocal Captain. Whilst there Thea was a lead member of the school's girls high voice choir, Choralia and took part in the finals of Choir of the Year, sang live on BBC Radio 3 and won the international singing competition Musica Eterna Roma in Italy. Thea is currently studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London.

She is also currently a member of the BYO and has worked alongside the WNO and National Opera Studio.
Outside of her classical career, Thea is well known as being a founding member of the 1940s styled harmony trio ‘Company B-UK’, with whom she has performed with at major music festivals in the UK, Monaco Yacht Show and the BBC. She has also performed alongside Danna, Russell Watson, Tenors Unlimited and FatBoy Slim, as well as being a member of the international winning Glee group ‘Resonate’.

Rachel Deacy is a Soprano from Dorset, singing from an early age she was involved in local theatre groups including the Guilbert and Sullivan Operatic society. She came to study at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2018 and is currently in her final year. A passionate musician she has been exploring other instruments including piano and violin.

Under the guidance of her wonderful teacher and coach, Sarah Pring and Andrew Matthews-Owen, both have extensive professional backgrounds. Both have helped tremendously with helping her discover what kind of Soprano she is on her quest to becoming a professional Opera singer.

Having studied multiple genres of music, she has found herself most comfortable with classical music, she feels can fully express emotionally and better develop musically. With such a variety in classical music and opera, she is excited for the future and what new works she will discover.
