Meet Emily Who
Emily who? Emily WHO! She’s an Australian children’s singer who recently released her fourth album of songs for preschoolers.
Emily has performed a series of live shows across Sydney in 2022 including the Sydney Fringe Festival, Spot On Children’s Festival at Riverside Theatres, and alongside Bluey and Paw Patrol at the Sydney Zoo. She writes and presents annual children’s performances for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Kur-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra. Emily is also the creator of two webseries: the Kids Couch Concert Series and Musical Pirate Adventures, on which she collaborated with Arcadia Winds.
She volunteers for Storyville and Books In Homes – regularly reading stories for young children.
In 2020, Emily was selected for the Artist Meets Early Years program at the Visioni Festival in Bologna, Italy, and the Next Generation program as part of the Bibu Festival in Helsinborg Sweden. When both of these were cancelled due to the beginnings of the pandemic, she performed in several preschools across London.
