At the heart of Emulsion’s melting pot of musicians and ideas is the Emulsion Sinfonietta - a colourful line-up of trumpet, violin, clarinets, saxes, oboe/cor anglais, cello, bassoon, electric guitar, piano, bass and drum kit. This unique ensemble is a happy by-product of several Emulsion festivals, and two of the works it has premiered have gone on to win BASCA British Composer Awards in the Contemporary Jazz Category (Joe Cutler's 'Karembeu's Guide to the Complete Defensive Midfielder' - 2016; Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian's 'Muted Lines' - 2017). For this event the Sinfonietta will appear in a myriad of small and large line-ups to perform collaborations, improvisations and new music – much of it written by the players themselves.

In the lead up to the festival looking for volunteers to participate in them as well as attend/participate in the Emulsion festival.
