Born in Surrey, Emily read music at the University of Bristol where she won the JH Britton Prize and the Sir Thomas Beecham scholarship for outstanding performance, later graduating with distinction from the prestigious Royal Academy Opera.
Working for houses including English National Opera, Garsington Opera, Grange Festival Opera and West Green Opera, favourite roles include Anne Trulove The Rake's Progress, La Fée Cendrillon, Adele Die Fledermaus and Susanna Le Nozze di Figaro. Emily is in increasing demand as an artist in contemporary repertoire, having performed Soprano Into the little hill (George Benjamin) for Shadwell Opera and the ROH female conductors programme, Miss Shlessen (cover) Satyagraha (Philip Glass) for ENO and, for Scottish Opera, the world premier of Lliam Paterson’s The Eighth Door.
On the concert platform, highlights include Mozart’s Requiem at the Royal Albert Hall with the English Festival Orchestra, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in Kristiansand, Norway, and Eurydice Orpheus in the Underworld at St John's, Smith Square. Emily has also made a number of appearances on BBC Radio 3's In tune.
Last year, Emily made her debut with the National Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company to great acclaim, and will return this summer to sing the roles of Mabel Pirates of Penzance and Yum Yum The Mikado at Buxton Opera House.
