About Emilie

Emilie Parry-Williams

ATCL  |  BMus (Hons)  |  PgDip 

Emilie is a Classical Soprano based in Monmouthshire, South Wales. 

In Autumn 2022, she appeared on The Voice UK joining team Sir Tom Jones. At ‘The Blind Auditions’ she achieved four chair turns from the coaches, and Sir Tom also used his one-per-series block button, preventing her from choosing Olly Murs.

Emilie has performed in places such as the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Glyndebourne Opera House, Bath Abbey, St. David's Hall Cardiff, The Sherman Theatre Cardiff, and Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Emilie travels to various locations around the UK and beyond to perform for a wide range of commissions and occasions; her example repertoire list is updated regularly and available via email upon request.
