White Emily

Emily White

Emily was working as a trombonist, when she heard the beautiful and inspiring sound of the baroque violin. She took violin lessons from Rachel Podger then Walter Reiter and studied with him at Trinity College of Music for a postgraduate course in historical violin performance. With her performance of Bach's Chaconne from the Solo Partita in D minor, she won the Trinity Early Music Prize 2007.

Emily has enjoyed being a member of Devon Baroque, directed by Maggie Faultless, for several years. She has also played violin with The Scholars Baroque, Concerto Caledonia and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. She set up The Isla Quartet, which released their first disc 'Center of Huntly' in 2008.

She created and directs the annual Huntly Violin Summer School which combines the traditional Scottish and classical styles of learning. She also continues to work as a trombone player, is a member of the English Cornette and Sackbut Ensemble, and recently appeared on BBC Radio 3's 'In Tune' with her modern brass quintet 'Chaconne' to showcase music from their recent CD release 'Dancing in the Dark'. Emily freelances with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the English National Ballet and the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century. She is the sackbut coach at this year's early brass course at Dartington International Summer Music School.
