About

Classical PR

As part of my role as Classical Media Officer at Decca Records (part of Universal Music Group), I coordinate and execute UK press campaigns across digital and print media. Recent campaigns include Captain Tom Moore’s UK No.1 bid and Andrea Bocelli’s powerful performance from the Milan Duomo on Easter Sunday, which became the biggest ever classical live-stream.

Please visit the Recent Press page for recent examples of press campaigns. If you would like to get in touch to discuss how I can help you with your press and media profile, contact press@elizabethtownsendwrites.co.uk

Over the last four years I have worked with world-leading artists including Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Jess Gillam, Nicola Benedetti, Lise Davidsen, Lang Lang, Víkingur Ólafsson, Isata Kanneh-Mason, Andrea Bocelli, Renée Fleming, Riccardo Chailly, Daniel Barenboim, John Williams, Seiji Ozawa, Yuja Wang, Anoushka Shankar, Joseph Calleja, Ray Chen, Max Richter, Ludovico Einaudi, John Rutter, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Karl Jenkins, Angela Gheorghiu, Cecilia Bartoli, Benjamin Grosvenor, Mari Samuelsen and Luciano Pavarotti. Mainstream artists include John Barrowman, Gareth Malone, Gregory Porter and Hans Zimmer.


Freelance Work

I am open to freelance writing commissions and can help you create a bespoke press toolkit as you navigate your career in the classical industry during these challenging times. This includes the writing of artist biographies and liner notes, copywriting services for press releases and up-to-date advice on promoting yourself as an artist in 2020 and beyond.

If you are a young artist from an minority ethnic background underrepresented in classical music, I am currently offering the above services for free. Please get in touch for more information.
