Emily Vanlint (viola)

Emily began playing the violin at the age of six and subsequently took up the viola at the age of nine. She was fortunate enough to be awarded a place at St. Mary’s Music School where she studied under Warren Jacobs and Jimmy Durrant. As a teenager she was co-principal viola of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and regularly performed in concert halls around Britain including The Royal Albert Hall, Sage Gateshead and Birmingham Symphony Hall. After leaving school, Emily travelled Sicily with a viola both teaching and performing before gaining a place at The University of Liverpool to study music. Whilst at University she performed the Bartok Viola Concerto and Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante (with violinist Marcello Defant) with the University Symphony Orchestra. Emily now works for The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic as Lead Musician for the In Harmony project; an initiative based on Venezuela’s El Sistema which uses orchestral music-making to improve the health, education and aspirations of children and young people in Everton.

Her recital today features works by Bach, Hindemith and a new work by Eve Harrison.
