Emma has had a slightly unconventional route into the world of opera. After spending a good few years working in the PR and Advertising industries, she decided to quit the day job and pursue her passion for opera once and for all! 

Since then she's been trying to gain as much experience as possible. In September 2018 she embarked on her Masters in Vocal Performance at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, splitting her time between both Cardiff and London.

Emma is currently studying with Elizabeth Atherton at the RWCMD.  Recent stage roles include the title role in Princess Ida with Grosvenor Light Opera, reprising that role at The International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival in the summer of 2018. Mariuccia in Nino Rota's I due timidi  (Handmade Opera), 1st Witch (cover) and chorus Dido &... (Helios Collective) Miss Jessel The Turn of the Screw (Secret Opera), Suor Genovieffa Suor Angelica (Secret Opera), Sidonie Armide (Woodhouse Opera), Dorothy Dorothy - a new opera by James Cook (Secret Opera), Anne Page The Merry Wives of Windsor (Brent Opera), Emmie Albert Herring (Harrow Opera), Adele Die Fledermaus (Wimbledon Light Operatic Society), Young Heidi Follies (WLOS), Chorus/Bridesmaid Trial By Jury (Maldon Music Festival), Chorus Otello (Everybody Can!

(LUU Stage Musicals Society) and Betty Rizzo Grease (LUU Stage Musicals Society). 

Repertoire experience in extended scenes includes the roles of Cio-Cio-san in the letter duet of Madama Butterfly, Countess in the Act II finale of Le nozze di Figaro, Mrs. Jones in Street Scene's opening number Ain't it Awful (Oxenfoord International Summer School). Josephine H.M.S Pinafore (Maldon Music Festival), Fiordiligi Così fan tutte, (City Lit Opera), Servilia La clemenza di Tito, Flora Turn of the Screw, Cleopatra Giulio Cesare (Associated Studios).  As a session singer, she has recorded backing vocals for Russell Watson on his albums Encore and The Voice, produced by Decca.
