I’ve got chance to enjoy her performance live at Maria Buccellati Fashion Show Yacht Party and now would like to introduce you this incredibly talented girl.
Lizzy May’s career took off when her 3-girl band was invited by Take That to be an opening act in their Beautiful World Tour, playing her own composition Body Mind and Soul to audiences of 15,000.
Lizzy May – electric cellist, acoustic cellist and singer – won a scholarship to study for 6 years at Yehudi Menuhin’s Music School, followed by 5 years at The RNCM and The Royal Academy of Music, learning from the world’s leading string players including Yehudi Menuhin, Ralph Kirshbaum, Philip Sheppard and Colin Carr. She took singing lessons with Mary Hammond and gained a 1st class degree and a distinction at postgraduate level. She has won the Leonard Rose Cello prize and the John Barbirolli, Nossek and Weil prizes. Lizzy May has now branched out into pop music and has built a successful career as a cellist, singer and songwriter.
