A graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Louise Kemény is a Britten-Pears Young Artist, Independent Opera Fellow and Yeoman of the Worshipful Company of Musicians; she won the Ian Smith of Stornoway Opera Prize, Basil A.Turner Prize, Joaninha Trust Prize and David Goldman Award.

She is passionate about the creation and interpretation of new music, and has created 3 lead roles in new operas—Woman Unknown Position and Girl Bonesong (Kate Whitley), and Wife Nauset (Joel Rust)—to critical acclaim.

Highlights on the concert platform include the soprano solos in Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with Stephen Cleobury at King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, Handel’s Messiah in Bergen with members of the Philharmonic Orchestra, Carmina Burana at Cadogan Hall, Mozart’s Mass in C minor at Goldsmith’s Hall, Rossini’s Stabat Mater and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No 2 'Lobgesang'. A keen exponent of 20th century and contemporary repertoire, Kemény has performed Stravinsky’s Les noces with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Schoenberg’s Quartet No 2, Pierrot Lunaire, Ravel’s Trois Poèmes de Mallarmé and Stravinsky’s Japanese Lyrics at Conway Hall.

A keen recitalist, Kemény has performed at the MozartFest Würzburg, and at St John’s Smith Square in a solo recital entitled 'Dans le Jardin', inspired by the Royal Academy of Art’s Painting the Modernist Garden. She has also performed at Wigmore Hall, Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, St George’s Hannover Square, and at the Museen der Stadt Nürnberg, where she sang Tippet’s The Heart’s Assurance and Britten’s On This Island at the the Dokumentationszentrum, in commemoration of the First World War.
