Burrage, Hilary

Hilary Burrage.jpg
Hilary Burrage is Executive Chair of the Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Foundation, a UK-based Community Interest (non-profit) Company which focuses on the promotion, recognition and celebration of the life and legacy of the Black British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.  The strapline of SCFT is ‘Connecting People Through Music’.  The Foundation seeks to bring together social history, scholarship, human dignity and community engagement as they emerge from the experience and achievements of Coleridge-Taylor, who many would say is Britain’s greatest Black classical composer.

Hilary is a trained sociologist, at the beginning of her career also studying music as a coloratura soprano. She is a published writer (in the Huffington Post, academic journals and elsewhere) and previously worked as a college teacher and researcher.  She is married to Martin Anthony (‘Tony’) Burrage, a long-serving violinist in the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and collaborates closely with him and other colleagues in bringing forward the unique legacy of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.
