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. Their flagship project is a staging of Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre’s cantata Judith, for soprano, violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord, which will be performed throughout the country this summer. Check the Calendar for details of upcoming performances.
She was recently appointed Conductor of the Kingston Singers. When not working conducting singers she is creating new ensembles to meet her own musical cravings and those of her friends — Port Meadow Sinfonia (https://www.portmeadowsinfonia.com/) and PLAY (a forthcoming flexible ensemble of singer/instrumentalists). Conducting teachers and mentors include James Burton and Toby Purser. Gabriella enjoys writing in her spare time. Two of her poems will be published in the inaugural issue of An Inkling, a new journal (https://www.aninkling-journal.com/).
