Lizzy Humphries graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with a Distinction in a Postgraduate Diploma in Vocal Studies, where she was supported by a Harold Hyam Wingate Scholarship. Prior to this she graduated with First Class Honours in Music from The University of Manchester. While at university, Lizzy was awarded a place on The Sixteen’s young artist programme, Genesis Sixteen, and has since performed on a freelance basis with both The Sixteen, Britten Sinfonia Voices and The Kings Consort. She has extensive experience in solo and oratorio singing, performing arias at the London Handel Festival with the Trinity Laban Baroque Orchestra, Monteverdi’s Lamento della Ninfa in the NCPA in Mumbai and as a regular soloist at St Martin-in-the-Fields where she has been accompanied by orchestras such as the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields and Brandenburg Sinfonia. She also regularly sings solos for choral societies across the country.
Lizzy regularly records live services for BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4, returning to Manchester to perform as part of the BBC Daily Service Singers. She was also a member of the Fellowship octet programme of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and also the VOCES8 Scholars programme, both for 2017/18 which has led to her leading workshops and running rehearsals with children from schools and choirs in the UK and abroad.
Lizzy was delighted to be one of Making Music UK’s Selected Artists for 2019/20 allowing her to be booked by choral societies across the UK for solo and education work. See here for further details.
When she is not performing, Lizzy is passionate about conservation and animal care. This began when she took up volunteering at Vauxhall City Farm, before being offered work to care for the animals there during lockdown. She currently works as a zookeeper at Battersea Park Children's Zoo and is undertaking a foundation degree in Zoo Management at Merrist Wood College.
