Emma Batley

Freelance cellist for weddings & events

I live in the beautiful Cádiz province in Southern Spain, in a lovely, rural, hilltop village.

In my playing career I have been lucky enough to enjoy a wonderful amount of music-making in the UK, and am now continuing to develop my musical career here in Spain, searching for musicians to play with and events to play for!

Live music can add a wonderful dimension to your event, whilst also being very affordable. It is a unique addition to a wedding, other special occasion or gathering.

Please contact me if you would like to find out more about how I can help to make your event even more memorable.

About Me

Having been lucky enough to have grown up within a musical family, I started enjoying and playing music from an early age, training on piano and cello. I went on to specialise in performance for my music degree, and during my musical career I have played and performed in many ensemble groups across the UK.

From my very earliest musical experiences, I have always loved to perform and share wonderful music with others. As well as performing as a soloist, I am experienced in performing in string trios, piano trios/quartets/quintets as well as larger ensembles such as the Birmingham Sinfonia and the Dartington International Summer School orchestra. Prior to leaving the UK I had been principal cellist with the Plymouth Symphony Orchestra and also played and performed regularly with my string quartet for over 20 years.

Although classically trained, I have experience in playing and performing a vast array of genres. From classical works and show tunes to jazz classics and modern favourites, and I am very open to preparing particular requests.

Having performed at many weddings and other events in the past, I am very aware of what a wonderful addition live, classical music can contribute to such an occasion – and the sound of a cello adds a romantic touch all of its own.

I am happy to travel anywhere around the Cadiz, Gibraltar, Costa del Sol and Malaga area, so please get in touch via the Contact Form if you would like me to provide a quote for your event, arrange to discuss your requirements, or if you would like to meet up.

Having live music at your event can transform it into a unique and special occasion that all will remember

Please contact me if you’d like me to play at your event, or if you’re interested in meeting up to play.
