Joshua Elmore

Joshua Elmore is a Countertenor and a native of Mobile, Alabama, U.S.A, who now lives in the U.K. He studied at the University of Southern Mississippi where he received a bachelor’s degree in music education and at the University of Leeds where he received a master’s degree in vocal performance. 

Elmore’s first involvement with Pegasus Opera Company took place in September/October 2020 when he was selected to participate as a mentee in the online opera mentoring programme. He also appeared on BBC News: Africa where he sang and was interviewed to assist in promoting Pegasus Opera Company’s online Legacy and Hope concert.

… each member bringing their own individual caricature to the stage. None more so than Josh Elmore, whose surprising vocals and overly camp, scene-stealing performance provided much of the comic value whenever the band of singers appeared.

And that’s without mentioning the incredible acting on behalf of … Josh Elmore who … created utterly hilarious characters that will surely stick in the audience’s mind for a long, long time.
