Described by Expressen as a singer with magnetic stage presence, and by Baroquiades.com as possessing a soprano with “les couleurs cristallines”, Elin Skorup has established herself as one of Sweden’s most sought after specialists in oratorio, opera, and lieder, performing and recording regularly throughout her homeland, and across Europe.
As a concert soprano, Elin has, during the past season, been soloist in the Mozart Requiem with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, has sung in J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble, has performed Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with the Gävle Symphony Orchestra as well as the Mozart C-Minor Mass with both the Nordic Chamber Orchestra under Ragnar Bohlin and at the Palacio de Festivales in Cantabria, Spain.

This project was released on Ondine Records in november 2017 as Brahms, Song of Destiny, with Elin’s singing being acclaimed by ForumOpéra.com: ”Worth to be mentioned, in the only number selected from opus 65, the soloist, Elin Skorup, with a beutiful soprano, translates the text remarkably singing Nagen am Herzen fühl ich.” Earlier she has toured Germany as a soloist in J.S. Bach's Christmas Oratorio with the Hannoversche Hofkapelle, and has sung the soprano solo in Händel Dixit Dominus in the Stockholm Concert Hall with conductor Fredrik Malmberg,
No stranger to the operatic stage, Elin has been featured as Pamina in The Magic Flute, Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro and as the high coloratura role of the Secret Political Police in Le Grand Macabre by Ligeti.
