Ella is currently studying for a Masters in Performance at the Royal Academy of Music under the tuition of Elizabeth Ritchie and Andrew Smith, having graduated from the University of Sheffield with a First Class Honours Degree in Music.
Ella has a particular interest in performing new music. She has recently performed at the Leeds Lieder Festival Composer and Poets Forum as part of the Day of Song, as well as premiering Jonathan Higgins’s Schutzwall, playing the character of Susanne Meyer at the Tête à Tête festival.
Her other roles include Miles from Britten’s The Turn of the Screw, Galatea in Handel’s Acis and Galatea, and La Contessa in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, as well as performing scenes as the Governess from The Turn of the Screw. She is in demand as an oratorio singer around the country, performing a wide variety of works including Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s The Creation, Mozart’s Requiem and Vespers and Purcell’s Come, Ye Sons of Art. She is a Royal Academy of Music/Kohn Foundation Bach cantata scholar.
A keen recitalist and collaborator, she has an on-going relationship with the ensemble 4 Girls 4 Harps, with whom she has performed at the Bradfield Festival on numerous occasions. She is a member of the Royal Academy of Music’s prestigious Song Circle. She also performed Finzi’s Dies Natalis and Mahler’s Fünf Rückert Lieder with the Sheffield University Symphony Orchestra. Recently she made her debut with Ensemble 360 in Music in the Round’s May Festival, singing John Tavener’s Akhmatova Songs. She was commended in the Mozart Singing Competition, and was runner-up the David Clover Singers Platform Recital Prize, as well as the Lesley Garrett Opera Prize. She was also a recipient of BBC Chorister of the Year.
At Sheffield, Ella was also an active member of the University of Sheffield Chamber Choir. In her final year, she took up the role of their Associate Conductor. She was also the Director of Jessop Voices, a choir made up entirely of first year Music students.
Ella is generously supported by the Sheffield Church Burgesses Trust, the Josephine Baker Trust and the Parepa-Rosa Prize, awarded by the Royal Academy of Music.
