Although she’s moved away from home to pursue her studies in Opera, her root is always in Ayrshire and is very excited to perform back on home soil.

Whilst in full time study at the RNCM, Emyr sang in the Conservatoire’s production of Handel’s Theodora in March 2017. This is Emyr’s first time visiting Scotland and is very excited to share an evening of wonderful music with you.
