Levedy is an all-female vocal and harp chamber ensemble formed in early 2020 by a quintet of students studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
Their experience is garnered from a vast array of choirs and ensembles including the choirs of Queens’, Robinson and Trinity College, Cambridge, the Old Royal Naval College Chapel Choir, the Philharmonia Chorus, the National Youth Choir of Scotland, Emma Kirkby’s Dowland Works, the Facade Ensemble and orchestras such as the London City Philharmonic, the CBSO Youth Orchestra and the Swiss Youth Orchestra (SJSO). Levedy has greatly enjoyed exploring underperformed works for upper voices with harp: future plans include a tour around the United Kingdom, a particular highlight being a concert featuring music by Britten and Holst’s Choral Hymns from the Rig Veda in St Margaret’s, Putney, next month.
The members of Levedy, a Middle English word meaning ‘lady’ inspired by the language in Britten’s Ceremony of Carols, are particularly interested in the juxtaposition of solo and ensemble voices with harp, and cultivating a rich, unique and mature blend. They are grateful to have benefited as a group from coaching with Linda Hirst and Gabriella Dall’Olio.
