Tenor, studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, under the tutelage of Professor Stephen Robertson.
Ted has sung in Glasgow Cathedral Choir since 2015, responding well to the demands of performing 1vpp, and reading new material quickly and accurately with minimal rehearsal. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for any similar work; he's a great team member and even has good chat sometimes!Andrew Forbes 5 August 2017
Born and raised in London, 23 year old tenor Ted Black is currently in his fourth year of study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, under the tutelage of the head of Vocal Studies, Professor Stephen Robertson. While at RCS, Ted has achieved numerous competition successes, recently winning first place in the Jean Highgate Scholarship for Singing and the Governors' Recital Prizes in the divisions for both singing and chamber music, with a vocal octet he founded and rehearsed. Ted also represented the RCS at the Kathleen Ferrier Bursary Competition, and was recently awarded second place in the first annual Leonie Kayser Prize for Singing. Previous operatic roles include Iopas 'Les Troyens', Čerevin 'From the House of the Dead', and L’aumônier 'Dialogues des Carmélites', and upcoming roles include the title role in Britten’s Albert Herring. Equally at home on the concert platform, he made his Edinburgh International Festival debut as the soloist for Bernstein's Chichester Psalms with the São Paulo Symphony orchestra, under the baton of world-renowned conductor Marin Alsop. Also an accomplished choral singer, Ted works as a choral scholar at Glasgow Cathedral, is a regular member of RCS Voices, a small consort of voices working out of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and is a member of Genesis Sixteen's 2017-18 choir. Ted is very grateful to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Scholarship Trust, for their ongoing generous financial support.
