Prior to writing “Be as One”, Emma sang with a local Sheffield-based choir headed up by Head of Performing Arts & Choral Coordinator, Andrew Nimmo. She performed the lead in the opera, Brundibár, & appeared in several musicals at the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield, UK. Emma later received jazz vocal coaching from British singer/songwriter, Sally Doherty.
Between 2012 & 2016, Emma was one of the lead singers of Orquesta Estelar, one of the hottest Latin bands in London, UK:
“Orquesta Estelar bring their energy & live brilliance to a range of gigs across the UK with a dazzling array of percussion, horns, flutes, guitars, vocals & strings.”
This spectacular Cuban Big Band includes over 25 members. Orquesta Estelar play all the Cuban classics, in a variety of venues, from upscale West End clubs (e.g Café de Paris), to diplomatic & cultural events.
“Sara McGuinness & Elpidio Caicedo lead a stunning band line-up, setting the Festival stage alight with cha cha cha, son, mambo & Latin jazz, in original arrangements that showcase every instrument in the band.“
Singing with Orquesta Estelar developed Emma as a performer, & gave her a deeper love & appreciation for Latin music.
