Emily Vine            Soprano

Born in Surrey, Emily's formative years as a singer began as a member of Farnham Youth Choir. She went on to read music at the University of Bristol, winning the Sir Thomas Beecham scholarship for outstanding performance, and was awarded a place at the Royal Academy of Music, where she now studies on the Preparatory Opera course with Elizabeth Ritchie and Iain Ledingham. Recently Emily was delighted to accept an offer to join Royal Academy Opera, commencing in September.

Emily's opera roles include Barbarina for Amersham Festival Opera with Iain Ledingham, Miles (Turn of the Screw) with Gergely Kaposi of Hungarian State Opera in Budapest, and Susanna and Donna Anna for Bristol University Operatic Society. Opera scenes include Calisto, Clorinda (La Cenerentola), Giannetta (L'elisir d'Amore) and Lucia (The Rape of Lucretia). Since joining the Academy, she has been highly commended in the Isabel Jay Opera Prize and the Michael Head Prize.

Concert performances have recently included the Brahms, Fauré and Rutter Requiems and Bach's Christmas Oratorio in Kristiansand, Norway. This year Emily will be a soloist in the flagship Royal Academy of Music/Kohn Foundation Bach Cantata series, and in March will sing for Laurence Cummings in the London Handel Festival.
