Gabriella is a conductor and singer living in London. In 2017 she graduated with a First Class degree in Music from Oxford University, where she conducted Oxford University Chorus and held a conducting scholarship with Schola Cantorum of Oxford. She went on to study solo voice ensemble singing under Robert Hollingworth at York University, where she conducted new music with the Chimera Ensemble. She performs regularly in Europe as a permanent member of the Flemish Radio Choir and is a fellow of the National Youth Choir (https://www.nycgb.org.uk/fellowship-introduction), which combines her passions of conducting and singing. She sang the soprano solo in Mahler’s Fourth Symphony for the launch concert of Orchestra for the Earth (https://www.orchestrafortheearth.co.uk/), one of the country’s most exciting young ensembles. She has also appeared as a soloist with the Seraphin Chamber Orchestra and St Martin’s Voices. Gabriella is a founding member of the Judith Collective, a group of early musicians who seek to give old music a contemporary impact through concerts, productions, and collaborations that have an interdisciplinary focus. The group will be hosting a new festival in 2020. Their flagship project is a staging of Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre’s cantata Judith, for soprano, violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord.
Gabriella conducts the Kingston Singers and Port Meadow Sinfonia (https://www.portmeadowsinfonia.com/), an amateur orchestra she co-created for musicians who have chosen to work in other fields. She has recently been appointed Conducting Fellow at St Martin-in-the-Fields (https://www.stmartin-in-the-fields.org/about-our-music/), where she will be regularly working with their professional and amateur ensembles. Gabriella is also a writer. Two of her poems were recently published in the inaugural issue of An Inkling, a new journal (https://www.aninkling-journal.com/).
