Soprano Eleanor Austin is an undergraduate student at the Royal Northern College of Music studying for a BMus in Vocal Studies and Opera, under the tutelage of Sarah Rhodes. During her time at the college, she has performed as a chorus member and dancer for their 2018 production of Hansel and Gretel (Humperdink) and their 2017 production of Cendrillon (Massenet). She has also sang as a soloist for the RNCM Jazz Collective, and as a member of several Chamber Groups and the RNCM Symphony Chorus. Eleanor is a proactive individual who frequently organises and performs in concerts of her own, most recently a recital to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One and a concert to celebrate the poetry of Keats, Byron and Shelley.
Eleanor began her conservatoire training at the Junior Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she studied singing with Rachel Sherry and Marilyn Rees, and piano with Alexander Boyd. In 2016 Eleanor was Highly Commended in the Lutine Prize and awarded the Singer Of The Year Prize in recognition for her commitment to solo singing and the Girls' Chamber Choir.
Eleanor has been commended with several awards, including the Most Promising Young Singer Award at the 2015 Freda Parry Competition, Third Place at the 2016 Essex Young Musician Competition 2016, and more recently a NODA for her performance as Mrs Segstrom (The Quintet) in Manchester University's 2017 Production of A Little Night Music (Sondheim). In 2016 she sang as Soprano One for the London Concert Choir at prestigious venues including Cadogan Hall, St Johns's Smiths Square and The Barbican for a performance of Vaughan-Williams' Sea Symphony which featured soloists Roderick Williams and Katherine Broderick.
Eleanor is a keen enthusiast for music therapy and has assisted music therapists in SEN school across Essex and Manchester, including volunteering for the UK's leading music therapy charity Nordoff-Robbins. She had the privilege of observing and interacting with the students, communicating through music. Eleanor is currently volunteering with LIME Music For Health at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.
Eleanor enjoys maintaining a healthy lifestyle through running, swimming, dancing, yoga and practising mindfulness. In her spare time she likes to read and write poetry, and enjoy as many concerts as possible, of any and all musical genre!
