Canadian-born, Glasgow-based composer and researcher Emily Doolittle’s music has been described as “masterful” (Musical Toronto), “eloquent and effective,” and “the piece that grabbed me by the heart” (The WholeNote). Recent activities include the premiere of Reedbird, commissioned and performed by the Vancouver Symphony (2019), performances of her chamber opera Jan Tait and the Bear by Ensemble Thing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in the Made in Scotland Showcase (2018), and the premiere of Bowheads, commissioned by Chamber Music Scotland for the Kapten Trio (2019), and the covid-friendly online premiere of The Wren-King, by Madrigirls (2020). Her academic research focuses primarily on zoomusicology, and on the intersection of gender, parenting, and creativity. She is an Athenaeum Research Fellow and Lecturer in Composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
