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.
