Emily Levy is a British composer and singer. In 2018, she was awarded a Masters degree with Distinction from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, where she studied composition with Ed Bennett, Joe Cutler, Howard Skempton and Errollyn Wallen. Her musical influences are diverse, including medieval, classical, folk and jazz traditions. She is especially interested in the voice and in sound design, using both to blur the stylistic boundaries of electroacoustic composition.
Emily has written music for and appeared on numerous radio shows, and composed for a range of ensembles including the Marian Consort, the Thallein Ensemble, the 315 Ensemble and the Oxford Dance Company. She was recently commissioned to write a song cycle for the renowned baritone Roderick Williams titled ‘The Rain Is Now’, and is currently Composer in Residence with Streetwise Opera in Manchester, for whom she wrote a chorus piece titled ‘RE-UNION’. Emily was also named one of Sound and Music’s New Voices of 2019, which is the organisation’s flagship Artist Development programme.
