Angelina-Ellada Pavlou is a Greek pianist currently studying for her Master's at the Royal Northern College of Music under the guidance of Murray McLachlan. She gained her Bachelor's degree from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, where she studied with Gabriele Baldocci and Katya Lebedeva. Born in Xanthi, Greece she started piano lessons at the age of five with Giannoula Papazoglou and later with Professor George-Julius Papadopoulos. During her studies, Angelina-Ellada had masterclasses and lessons with Giorgia Alessandra Brustia, Nikolai Demidenko, Margaret Fingerhut, Leon McCawley, Murray McLachlan, Hamish Milne, Pascal Nemirovski, Pascal Rogé, Jerome Rose, Martino Tirimo and Vassilis Varvaressos. She has won prizes in several piano competitions including 1st prize and a scholarship at Kozani International Music Festival in 2014 and 2nd prize at the 4th Pan-Hellenic Competition 'Maria Cherogiorgou-Sigara' in 2012. She was a finalist in the 2017 intercollegiate John Longmire Beethoven Piano Competition.

Angelina-Ellada regularly performs in concerts, playing solo piano repertoire and chamber music. She formed Duo Dithyrambico with Christos Fountos, performing repertoire for piano 4-hands and two pianos. Angelina has played as an orchestral pianist with Trinity Laban Winds Orchestra, including a performance at Blackheath Halls. She has performed at the Athens Concert Hall, the Musical Odyssey Festival in Nafplio and in Manos Hadjidakis' house in Xanthi, Greece, as well as in the 'Giovani in Musica' Festival in Grosseto, Italy, the Old Royal Naval College Chapel, the Jacqueline du Pré Music Building in Oxford, the Royal Academy of Arts in the frame of the Oceania exhibition 2018, the Polish Heart Club and the Hellenic Centre. She was invited to perform at the Teatro di Marcello in Rome as part of the Concerti di Tempietto Festival last August.

Her interest in contemporary music led to Angelina-Ellada participating in Trinity Laban's New Lights Piano Festival which hosted Michael Finnissy. In February 2019, she performed at Tate Modern Museum as part of a collaborative project between musicians, dancers and architects. She has also participated in the anniversary Debussy Festival and the Brahms Festival at Trinity Laban. One of her last appearances was at the Pushkin House in London where she had the unique opportunity to work on Russian repertoire with the Canadian pianist Ilya Poletaev. Her teaching experience includes teaching theory of music, and as a teaching assistant at the Young Musician's Summer School organised by Trinity Laban.

Angelina-Ellada would like to thank the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the Dorothy Smith Scholarship for supporting her studies.
