Award-winning soprano

Ella Taylor is a soprano with a passion for performing contemporary music and works by women and gender non-conforming artists.

Their programme for this concert is a finely curated balance: contemporary works from Trans artists and composers, including J.N Redelinghuy‘s composition based on notebook fragments by Jean Michel Basquiat; a new piece from CENMAS‘ Professor Dorothy Ker; and two classical works from Ravel and Schumann.

It promises to be a mesmerising performance by one of the UK’s most exciting rising young sopranos.

Ella was a Young Artist with the National Opera Studio for the 2019/20 season, as well as a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, where they gained Distinction in MA Performance, a DipRAM for an outstanding final recital, and the Charles Norman Prize.

On the concert and oratorio stage, Ella is in demand as a soloist. Notable highlights include Górecki’s Symphony of Sorrowful Songs at Sheffield Cathedral, Schönberg’s Pierrot Lunaire at the Royal Academy of Music, and a performance on BBC Radio 3 of Oliver Knussen’s Trumpets at the British Composer Awards. Their repertoire includes many of the major oratorios by Bach, Handel, Haydn and Mozart.

Ella is a keen collaborator and recitalist, making a dedicated effort to work with and perform works by people underrepresented in classical music.

This concert will be live-streamed with state-of-the-art video and sound equipment from the University of Sheffield's Drama Studio.
