Elizabeth Capener is a native of Gloucestershire where she began her public solo career in her local parish church at the age of 6. Twice a semi finalist in the BBC’s Choirgirl of the Year competition, she studied music at Dean Close School and Exeter University. She has twice been a member of Eton Choral Course, and as a result was invited to join Ralph Allwood’s renowned Rodolfus ensemble. Elizabeth has sung with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and The King’s Consort, as well as making several recordings and broadcasts for BBC Radio 3, World Service, and Classic FM. She has appeared at the Three Choirs’, Southern Cathedrals’ and Windsor festivals, in numerous cathedrals, abbeys and major venues throughout the UK, and in France, Belgium, Germany, Greece and the USA, including being invited to sing Handel’s setting of the Gloria in Falmouth in Cape Cod.
Following the successful completion of Certificate of Higher Education in Opera Performance at Birkbeck University, operatic performances have included the title role in Suor Angelica, Freia and Wellgunde (Wagner’s Das Rheingold) for Fulham Opera, Helena (Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream) for Opera Links, The Mother (Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors) for Music at the Heart of Fulham, and covering the role of Gilda in Rigoletto for Opera de Bauge. She has taken parts in opera scenes as Mimi in La Boheme, Violetta in La Traviata and Juliette in Romeo et Juliette. She has also sung the roles of Fiordiligi in Cosi fan tutte, and Donna Anna in Don Giovanni in weekend workshops for Elemental Opera. Elizabeth studies with singing teacher Raymond Connell.
In October 2014, Elizabeth released her debut album, 'Viva to the Diva', proceeds from which are being donated to Royal National Institution of Blind People.
She has recently appeared on BBC1 as a judge on their new singing contest All Together Now.
