Emily is a British Soprano based in Catford, South East London. Described as 'a singer with a feeling for song that cannot be taught' (John Mark Ainsley – adjudicator for the Brooks Van Der Pump English Song Competition 2017), Emily is a Britten Pears Young Artist (cohort of 2023-24) as an Elizabeth Harwood Memorial Award holder.

Emily graduated with Distinction from the Royal College of Music where she completed both an undergraduate and master’s degree as an award holder supported by an Alice Templeton award. Emily was awarded first prize for the Brooks Van Der Pump English Song Competition during her studies.

A passionate recitalist, Emily most recently performed with award winning pianist Emily Hoh in their collaborative recital 'a landscape of songs from the British Isles' in St Alfege's Church, Greenwich. Emily’s recital highlights also include performing James MacMillan’s ‘Three Scottish Songs’ in the Cadogan Hall.

Emily has a long love of folk music and was thrilled to make her solo debut at Glastonbury Festival this year where she performed a self-accompanied recital of traditional folk songs and English art songs on the Mandala Stage in the Green Futures Field.

Emily is also a keen singer of choral music and has performed with many of the UK and Europe's most exciting ensembles including the Utopia Orchestra and Choir, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Academy of Ancient Music, the Britten Sinfonia and Voices and the London Handel Orchestra.

Recent performance highlights include Purcell's 'The Indian Queen' (Peter Sellars’ adaptation) and Mozart's C Minor Mass with the Utopia Orchestra and Choir as part of the Salzburger Festspiele. As a Britten Pears Young Artist, Emily recently performed in Snape Maltings as part of the English Song end of course recital; she looks forward to collaborating with her peers in the forthcoming Aldeburgh Festival.

Upcoming performance highlights include performing the role of Meleagro in Handel’s opera ‘Atalanta’ as part of Barokkfest in Trondheim.
