Ellen Sargen

Contemporary composer and flautist

Having graduated from the University of Sheffield with a first class degree in Music last summer, I have just completed my MA in Composition (expected to graduate with a distinction in January 2019). I am currently based in Sheffield as a contemporary composer and advanced flautist. Works have included those for the Ligeti Quartet, Ensemble 360, NotaBene, Sarah Watts, Jonathan Ayerst, the University of Sheffield Symphony Orchestra and the University's New Music Ensemble. Please see my website for list of works and current projects.

As a flautist I have expansive experience as a soloist, and play the piccolo, the alto and the bass flutes. Please see my CV for information, or use my website to contact me about flute lessons. 

I also have a lot of experience in arts administration, and chaired the University’s music outreach volunteering body ‘Music in the City’ for two years – designing, coordinating and delivering music projects for schools in and around Sheffield. As part of this I produced Music for Youth in 2016 at Firth Hall, and represented Music in the City within the Sheffield Music Hub throughout this time.

I am always looking for new projects –  if you are interested, please feel free to download my CV and get in touch – I’d love to hear from you.
