Emily Crichton

Originally from Manchester, Emily recently completed her Masters degree as an Orchestral Artistry Scholar at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where her principal teachers were Gordon Hunt, Steven Hudson, Jane Marshall, and Alison Teale. Throughout her studies in Oxford and London she was awarded various scholarships, including a Magdalen College Music Scholarship, the music faculty Ensemble ISIS scholarship, Leverhulme Scholarship, and has recently joined the Musician’s Company as a Young Artist.

Her recent orchestral highlights include performances of The Magic Flute and Manson Lescaut at the Dorset Opera Festival, the LSO Gala Concert led by Simon Rattle in St Paul’s Cathedral, and the world premiere of FAIYA! with the LSO and On Track young musicians at the 2022 BMW Classics Concert. Emily is also a keen chamber musician; she was principal oboe in the Guildhall Wind Soloists conducted by Michael Collins, and also enjoys performing in a variety of settings with several other chamber ensembles, including her oboe trio Loriem Winds.

Emily is extremely grateful to the Musicians’ Company, the Leverhulme Trust and the Pendle Young Musician’s Bursary for their generous support toward her training and she looks forward to joining Nevis in their mission to make music accessible to all.
