Emma plays for WOW festival at Royal Festival Hall

On Sunday 11th March, Emma had the honour of sharing the stage at the Festival Hall with some truly wonderful women - Sandie Toksvig, Jo Brand, Sue Perkins, Jane Glover and Artistic Director of the Southbank Centre, Jude Kelly OBE. The final concert of the Women of the World festival was a huge success, with all music performed composed by women and all performers female. As part of the 73-piece all-female orchestra, Emma was hugely excited to be performing alongside Gaggle, all-female choir set up by good friend Deborah Coughlin.
