Eilidh McEwan - Soprano

Eilidh McEwan - Soprano

Eilidh McEwan has established her reputation on the concert platform both in oratorio and recital across the UK and overseas. Her large repertoire encompasses everything from baroque and renaissance works to lieder; from French song to folksong and from musical theatre to large scale choral works. Her speciality is performing Early music such as Bach/Baroque music, which she has recorded with the wonderful Irish Trumpeter Mark O'Keefe - Baroque duets such as Eternal Source of Light Devine and Let the Bright Seraphim by Handel and Bach Jauchzet gott in allen landen.

Since graduating, Eilidh has had the pleasure of performing with many choral societies across the country and is always delighted to be invited to do so. These concerts are always highlights for Eilidh and she receives many repeat invitations. 

In addition to her concert platform engagements Eilidh enjoys teaching singing and is also asked to sing at private functions and wedding ceremonies.

Glasgow born Eilidh's soloist career began at an early age when she was chosen by Christopher Bell to be a regular soloist in concerts given by the National Youth Choir of Scotland (NYCoS). Eilidh also gained experience as one of the youngest members of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra Chorus (under such as Lazarev, Weller and Jarvi); with the Strathclyde University Chamber Choir (under Tavener); with the RSAMD Chamber Choir and as a chorister at Glasgow Cathedral.

Eilidh studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow, with Margaret Marshall and Pat MacMahon, graduating BA (Musical Studies) with Honours. Today Eilidh continues to study with Pat MacMahon.

Highlights since then include being asked to sing in front of Her Majesty The Queen and Nelson Mandela, performing at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (to critical acclaim) and singing in concert with the distinguished Scottish and Irish sopranos Margaret Marshall and Ann Murray. In addition to these events Eilidh has also performed in concerts in Germany, Sweden, Ireland and Australia.

Future performances for Eilidh in 2014 are Handel Messiah, Haydn Mass in Time of War, Mozart Litaniae Laurentenae and Faure Requiem.
