Introducing Our New Principal Second…
Posted on August 14, 2013
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Emma Parker as our new Principal Second, sharing the role with Leslie Boulin Raulet. Amongst many other ventures, Emma also performs with the Badke Quartet. Interestingly, Emma has had indirect links with Camerata in the past, as the Badke Quartet studied with Camerata’s Music Director, Gábor Takács-Nagy.
Emma graduated in 2005 from the Royal Academy of Music in London with first class honours degrees in both undergraduate and postgraduate performance. She was a pupil of Howard Davis of the Alberni Quartet, and Marianne Thorsen of the Nash Ensemble and the Leopold Trio.
Aside from her role at Camerata, Emma enjoys a busy freelance career. She also plays with chamber orchestras such as the London Mozart Players, Northern Sinfonia and the Weinberger Kammerorchester. Her symphonic work includes the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and BBC Philharmonic. Emma plays on a Nicolò Amati violin from 1672, kindly on loan from a private donor.
