American oboist Emily Pailthorpe first gained public attention in 1989 when she won First Prize in the Gillet International Oboe Competition. The youngest artist ever to win this prize, she was hailed by the judges as the "Jaqueline du Pr� of the oboe". Emily went on to study English at Yale University where she graduated with distinction, and oboe at the Juilliard School of Music with Elaine Douves where she won both the Concerto Prize and the award for most outstanding orchestral musician. She subsequently appeared as Principal Oboist with many orchestras including the Baltimore Symphony and the Dallas Opera Orchestra.

Emily moved to England in 2000 to marry British flautist Daniel Pailthorpe. Since taking up permanent UK residence, she has been much in demand as a Principal Oboist, appearing with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Scottish, the Hall� Orchestra and the English National Opera Orchestra among others. An active teacher, she leads education workshops for the Orchestra of St John's Smith Square and coaches the Britten-Pears Orchestra. Along with Daniel Pailthorpe and Julian Milford, she is a founder member of the acclaimed chamber ensemble CONCHORD, with whom she has recorded for the ASV and Black Box labels, and toured Europe and America. Emily is also a regularly featured artist on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM and American National Public Radio.

Solo appearances have included the Schleswig-Holstein Festival, the Spoleto Festival, Italy, and a highly acclaimed performance of the Strauss Oboe Concerto with the Philharmonia Orchestra.
