"Granger and Crossley should of course be commended for their musical skill and technical prowess, after a concert of largely faultless, well-executed playing, but for constructing an evening of such bold, uncompromising, pioneering music they deserve a standing ovation. Trailblazers, while not always popular, should be fearless, and this was a performance that wasn’t just brave, but also brilliant."
October 2015, Emily gave her Sydney Opera House Debut with recorder player, Alicia Crossley as the culmination of her first Australian tour as Duality.

Two children playing in an attic make a wonderful discovery — an old trunk that belonged to their grandparents. And it's filled with costumes, props, opera albums and an old Victrola! So what happens when the kids start to play the old recordings? Magic — that's what! Scenes from beloved operas suddenly come to life!
