Welcome to the website of soprano Emma Morwood.

Born in Belfast, Emma Morwood trained at the University of Edinburgh and the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM). Emma was a major award winner at the RNCM, including the Dame Eva Turner Award, the Claire Croiza Prize for French Song and the Brigitte Fassbaender Award for Lieder.

Described as ‘enchanting’ (The Times), ‘superlative’ (Opera Magazine) and ‘brilliant’ (The Telegraph), and now working with many leading orchestras and conductors, she is fast establishing a reputation as one of our finest young sopranos both on the opera stage and the concert platform.

"Best of all was a radiant Pamina from Emma Morwood, a Belfast-born soprano with star potential and one of several Irish singers worth nurturing in her native land."
Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times, Opera Theatre Company/Miskimmon/Hurley, The Magic Flute Irish National Tour

"...the opera's most moving moment, infused with radiant femininity by soprano Emma Morwood, who sang impressively all evening."
