EMILY EVANS - TENOR HORN
Originally from Camborne, England, Emily currently lives in Wales where she began her studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD) in 2014. Just three years later Emily was presented with the coveted Harry Mortimer Award at the 2017 British Open Championships in Symphony Hall.
A former Principal Solo Horn of the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain (NYBBGB) and the National Children's Brass Band of Great Britain, Emily is now Solo Horn of the Flowers Band, having previously played Solo Horn with the Tongwynlais Temperance Band and the Lanner & District Silver Band.
Whilst studying at the RWCMD, Emily won the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble Competition (2016 and 2017), the McGrenery Chamber Prize (2017) and also reached the 2017 final of the prestigious Linda Mowatt solo competition.
Emily has made a name for herself as one of the brass world’s bright young stars having won the 'Best Tenor Horn' award at the prestigious Brass in Concert Championships in 2018. She was part of the NABBSS faculty in 2018 and 2019, and we are delighted that she is returning again for this year's 2022 course.
