Soprano Clare Lloyd-Griffiths grew up in London and read music at Gonville and Caius Cambridge, where she was a choral scholar. She studied voice at the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal Welsh College of Music where she was a Sir Geraint Evans Scholar. Her operatic roles include Susanna/Le Nozze di Figaro and Adele/Die Fledermaus (Weston Studio, Welsh Millenium Centre) and Madame Herz/Der Schauspieldirektor and Tonina/Salieri's Prima la musica, poi Le parole (Teatro Manoel of Valleta, Malta for the Notte Bianca Festival).

Clare has built a career for herself as a soloist and ensemble singer. As a member of the BBC Singers, Clare sings a different project each week, from the very old to the very new. Recent highlights include our BBC Proms 2021 concert, conducted by chief conductor Sofi Jeannin, performing music by Josquin des Prez, Clement Janequin, Sweelink and William Byrd alongside contemporary works by Roderick Williams, Bernard Hughes, Nico Muhly and Shiva Feshareki. Feshareki played the electric turntables in the premiere of her work Aetherworld, for which the Singers learned the subtle art of overtone singing.

Clare also sings regularly with Solomon’s Knot, the baroque group led by artistic director and bass-baritone singer Jonathan Sells. The group performs without a conductor and from memory. Clare has sung with Solomon’s Knot ever since their first frommemory performance in 2011; performances include Bach Johannes-Passion at Snape Maltings Good Friday 2017, Wigmore Hall April 2019, Bachfest Leipzig June 2019 and JS and JC Bach motets at Barbican, Bachkirche Arnstadt for Thuringer Bachwochen May 2019, St George’s Bristol 7 June 2019.

In October 2021 Clare sang with EXAUDI in a performance of Boulez’s Cummings ist der Dichter in Paris with Ensemble Intercontemporain. For almost 10 years Clare was a member of the choir of the Brompton Oratory Church, directed by Patrick Russill.
