About Emilie

Emilie Parry-Williams

ATCL  |  BMus (Hons)  |  PgDip 

Emilie is a Classical Soprano based in South Wales. In the Autumn of 2022 she appeared on ITV's 'The Voice UK' singing as one half of the duo, Thomas and Emilie. At the blind auditions, which aired on ITV on the 3rd of September 2022, Thomas and Emilie had four chair turns from the coaches, and chose to join Tom Jones's team; Sir Tom also used his block button, preventing Olly Murs from adding the singers to his team.

Emilie has been singing since she was five years old, and one of her earliest memories is winning her first singing competition at the age of six, singing a Welsh children’s song ‘Mi Welais Jac-y-do’, at her school Eisteddfod.
She has a First-Class Undergraduate Music Degree with Honours from City University of London (2018), and a Postgraduate Diploma in Classical Voice from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, graduating in September (2019). 

Emilie was awarded the Bill Weston Young Singers Award from Glyndebourne Opera House in October 2018; the award is given once every two years to a singer who has been involved with the Glyndebourne Education programme, which in Emilie's case, was Glyndebourne Academy 2017. Following her studies, Emilie was accepted to study a three month Erasmus through the European Opera Academy at the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini in Florence, Italy, completing the programme and returning to Wales in December 2019. In 2020 Emilie was chosen as one of five finalists for the Dunraven Young Welsh Singer of the Year competition; due to the pandemic however, the final was only recently rescheduled for Sunday the 16th of April 2023, and will be held at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. 

More recently, in June 2022, Emilie entered two categories at the 2022 Abergavenny Eisteddfod and won both the 'Song from A Show' and 'Championship Solo' competitions. She appeared in 'Payday Party', a commissioned piece of political theatre by Common Wealth theatre company, in both Chapter Arts Centre and Edinburgh Fringe in August 2022; the cast represented Wales at the 2022 Edinburgh festival fringe, with the show being sponsored by the Arts Council of Wales.

Emilie travels to various locations around the UK to perform, her example repertoire list is updated regularly and available via email upon request.
