About

Swedish soprano Emilia Utter made her debut at the Swedish Royal Opera in 2016 at the age of 20, with the role Yniold in the opera Pelléas et Mélisande, directed by Keith Warner. Since then she has been requested to sing for many different projects, involving singing in some of the finest venues for classical music in Stockholm.

Following her debut at the Royal Opera Emilia performed the lead in the French opera Lucile by Grétry with Drottningholm’s Baroque ensemble conducted by Mark Tatlow in the spring of 2017.

She started this year by making her London solo concert debut at The Victoria and Albert Museum. Since summer 2013, Emilia has been performing bold artistic concerts every year to challenge the formats of performing music and to counteract the limits segregating music and art. Emilia composes her own songs and arrangements, builds programmes with different genres and themes, and explores new ways to perform classical music. She has also performed as a soloist for the Swedish Royal family, including at Lilla Akademien’s 70th birthday celebration of the King of Sweden, Carl Gustav.

In the late summer of 2016 she was requested as a soloist by the South African orchestra MIAGI, conducted by Duncan Ward, for their tour to Switzerland. She also works regularly with the Flen World Orchestra, which connects people from around the world along with their musical traditions.

Over the years she has been supported by several institutions. In 2016 she received the Eugen Hedberg Scholarship from The Royal Swedish Academy of Music, and has been awarded their youth scholarship twice. Upon entering the Royal College of Music in 2017, she became an RCM Scholar, and in 2019 was awarded support from the Henry Wood Accommodation Trust. This summer she has been accepted as one of the scholars at Confidencen Opera & Music Academy and will begin her Master's study at the Royal College of Music at the start of this autumn generously supported by the institution.

 

In summer 2020 she will graduate with her Bachelor of Music from the Royal College of Music in London

"Growing up in the small, and to many, unremarkable town called Flen I was introduced to music at a young age. The playful and creative environment which surrounded me has followed me along the way and kept me curious, playful and always open to new things."
