Joshua Ellicott makes his H&H debut in Bach St. Matthew Passion. Born in Manchester, England, Ellicott read music at York University before continuing his vocal studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where he won a full scholarship from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust to study with Adrian Thompson on both the Postgraduate Vocal Studies and Opera courses.
He won four of the top prizes at the 2006 International Vocal Competition in ’s-Hertogenbosch, including the overall first prize. He was also a finalist in the 2007 Royal Overseas League Singing Competition.
In demand at home and abroad as a concert singer, Ellicott works regularly with the UK’s leading orchestras and ensembles, including The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC Concert Orchestra, the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, and the Binchois Consort. He has made numerous recordings for the BBC, including a live broadcast from the Barbican Centre of Copland’s opera The Second Hurricane under Leonard Slatkin.
Future engagements include the Evangelist (St. Matthew Passion) with the Orchestra of the Age of Englightenment; a Messiah tour with the King’s Consort, Richard Dauntless (Ruddigore) for Opera North; and Andres (Wozzeck) with the Philharmonia Orchestra, touring to Dortmund, Berkeley, Los Angeles, and New York.
