Hailed for her "lovely" tone and "excellent" diction (Harvard Theater Review), Soprano Emily Thorner is an active performer in the Boston music scene. Equally at home in early music, opera, and contemporary music, Ms. Thorner toured with choir Canto Armonico in Germany in 2016. She most recently was the featured soloist with Sound Icon, where she recorded the US premiere of Wolfgang Rihm's "Frage," known for its impossibly high tessitura. She is one of the original members of Les Enfants d'Orphée, a new Baroque ensemble dedicated to the performance of French baroque music and is the newest Soprano Section Leader at Church of Our Savior in Brookline. Upcoming engagements in include Sophie in Masterclass by Terrence McNally with Plymouth State Theatre in NH and Cunégonde in Candide with Manchester Choral Society, Sisa in “Noli Me Tangere,” and the Soprano Soloist in Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass.

Emily has been teaching for over 13 years, and previously taught at Chelmsford Music Academy. Her main goal as a teacher is for every student to truly understand his or her instrument, and to develop healthy singing technique. Ms. Thorner received her Bachelor of Music from Plymouth State University in Voice Performance and Pedagogy and her Master of Music from Florida State University in Voice Performance. In addition to classical technique, she has experience in stage acting, improv, voice therapy, and music theatre.
