Edmund Milly

Bass-Baritone: Pilate

Edmund Milly brings “perfect diction” (Los Angeles Times) and “mellifluous” tone (San Francisco Chronicle) to every performance. Based in Brooklyn, he sings with the GRAMMY-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street, and is a founding member of Trident Ensemble. Equally at home as a soloist or in ensembles, he has recently performed with the Mark Morris Dance Group, the Clarion Choir, Spire Chamber Ensemble, Antico Moderno, and the Thirteen. He has contributed solos to various international radio broadcasts on the BBC and CBC. An alumnus of the American Boychoir School, McGill University, and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, Edmund interprets music both ancient and modern with an expressivity founded in scholarly rigor.

Edmund’s musical education began with cello lessons at age three. While at the American Boychoir School in Princeton, New Jersey, he amassed formative musical experiences under the batons of Seiji Ozawa, Kurt Mazur, James Levine, and André Previn, and gained early exposure to pieces which remain in his repertoire to this day. As a graduate student in English Literature at McGill, Edmund refined the critical skills which inform his vocal interpretation of a text. These eclectic experiences ultimately led Mr. Milly to the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, where he completed his M.M. as a member of the elite Yale Voxtet and as a student of James Taylor. Yale Schola Cantorum provided the perfect proving ground to hone his craft under the direction of David Hill, Simon Carrington, and Masaaki Suzuki, under whom he portrayed an "authoritative and confident" (Seen and Heard International) Jesus in Bach's St. John Passion at Lincoln Center.
