Soprano Emma Walton grew up in Cumbria. There she began her vocal career in the Carlisle Cathedral Choir and Quay Voices Choir, based at The Sage, Gateshead; performing as a soloist with the Royal Northern Sinfonia aged 17.
Between 2006 and 2011, Emma studied at the University of Huddersfield, gaining a Bachelors of Music degree and a Postgraduate Diploma - both in Performance - with Paul Wade and Rachel Nicholls. Emma graduated in 2015 with a Distinction MMus in Vocal Performance studying with Jane Irwin; whilst there she sang the roles of Olga (Lehar: The Merry Widow) and Mother (Humperdinck: Hansel and Gretel). Thanks to a generous scholarship, Emma is currently studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's prestigious Alexander Gibson Opera School with Helen Lawson.
Emma has previously sung a number of full operatic roles, including: Diana (Offenbach: Orpheus in the Underworld), Marguerite (Gounod: Faust), Tatyana (Tchaikovsky: Eugene Onegin), Jenufa (Janacek) and Manon (Massenet).
New music is of particular interest to Emma, singing Julia Grant in the UK Première of Philip Glass' opera 'Appomattox' (2009) and The Man in the World Première of Joshua Goodman's 'The Man and Men' at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (2010).
