Edward Hawkins

Born in London, Edward Hawkins read music at King’s College, London, studying trumpet at the Royal Academy of Music with Iaan Wilson.
Having begun singing in his late twenties, Edward quickly began to develop a professional career, studying privately with Russell Smythe and Gary Coward. He worked in the acclaimed Glyndebourne Chorus for four years before pursuing a solo career.
Immediately prior to the COVID-19 lockdown, Edward was performing the role of Achilla in Giulio Cesare for English Touring Opera, and during 2020/21 he filmed two staged song cycles by Shostakovich for ETO’s digital season.
