    Jay and Sid were absolutely fantastic!

    From first contact with Jay we knew we’d like her at our wedding. Initially we thought we wanted a cellist with backing track but Jay reassured us that Sid doesn’t need any backing tracks; and she was right! We wanted someone who was able to play a variety of tracks and that exactly what she did. Not only is she talented, friendly and professional she is also conscientious of current covid guidelines and clearly outlined what steps she has taken personally to ensure the safety of everyone there.
    We loved her, and as did our guests which is exactly what you’d like from a performer! Not only this but I just love the fact she has named her cello 😊

    Absolutely beautiful

    The music you provided for us was absolutely beautiful- every song was perfect and will remain such a memorable part of our day. I’ve lost count of how many people have commented on how much they enjoyed it, especially my entrance music. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future.
    Thanks so much again x

Hi! My name is Jay Émme, and I'm a professional cellist!

I have played the cello for 30+ years, performing with numerous orchestras and ensembles around the UK, from north Scotland, right down to the south coast. I raised through the ranks of county youth orchestras very quickly, and was longest serving principal cellist (9 years) for Midland Youth Orchestra - now the prestigious CBSO Youth Orchestra. I am a regular cellist with Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra, whilst I also freelance with various other orchestras and ensembles around the UK throughout the year. I also travel to perform internationally, with locations including Canada, the Caribbean, the Channel Islands, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, and the Czech Republic.

Away from orchestras, I've been invited as a cellist for numerous musicians for professional recordings and live performances, have provided music for promo sessions, wedding shows, and Graduation ceremonies, and am often invited to work with music students exploring creative arts through music. I am currently finishing a Masters Degree in Performance, whilst also working towards a Fellowship of the Royal Schools of Music (FRSM). To maintain an excellent standard of playing, I currently study under award-winning cellists Richard Jenkinson, Lionel Handy, and Jane Salmon at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

It's a pleasure to meet you!
