Emily Davis No. 2 2nd Violin

As a principal player with the renowned Philharmonia Orchestra, Emily works regularly with some of the world's leading conductors and soloists.

In addition to a busy schedule of performing, touring and recording with the Philharmonia, Emily is also in demand as a Guest Principal elsewhere, working with the BBC Symphony, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Northern Sinfonia.

Prior to her appointment with the Philharmonia in 2004, Emily spent four years as Co-Principal Second Violin with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. A highlight of this job was always the so called 'Highland Tours', where the orchestra travelled around rural Scotland playing to very small but highly appreciative audiences. In fact, Emily still has a handwritten letter from a six year old girl who came to one of these concerts, inviting her to tea at her house!

Emily lives in a small village in Buckinghamshire with her husband and two children.
