Elizabeth Stratford 


Elizabeth trained initially with James Ashworth winning scholarships from external bodies before going on to work with Andrew Slater of Scottish Opera and Patricia Hamilton at the University of Huddersfield. Following her MA studies she trained with Henry Herford for a year at the Royal Northern College of Music.

She gained distinctions in all of her singing examinations and won a number of scholarships to pay for her studies from charities such as The Michael James Music Trust and The South Square Trust. She has sung in a variety of venues in a solo capacity including Salisbury Cathedral, Wimborne Minster, York Minster, St Paul’s Cathedral, Arundel Cathedral, Durham Cathedral and Hexham Abbey. She was the soprano soloist in a performance of Karl Jenkins The Armed Man during the Chichester Festivities in aid of cancer charities. In July 2010 she obtained the DipABRSM in singing.

Future engagements include a New Year Gala Concert where she will feature music from operas and musicals and a performance of Pergolesi’s Stabat mater during Lent.
