Silence! Singers at Work

A Singer's Sketchbook

Emmanuelle Ayrton


Silence! Singers at Work is a wry collection of drawings about the everyday experiences of singers. Anyone who sings, or has sung, whether on the world’s greatest opera stages or in the local choir, will instantly relate to the illustrations.

Internationally-acclaimed opera singer and recitalist Joyce DiDonato has collaborated with the author on the drawings and has written a preface to the book. Silence! Singers at Work makes a perfect gift for anyone who is, or who knows, a singer.

About the Author

Born in France, Emmanuelle Ayrton studied at Parsons School of Design and worked as a graphic designer in New York and later in Paris and Amsterdam. She discovered classical singing at the age of 35 and now regularly performs with various choirs and as a soloist. Combining her two passions, she decided to depict and share the many tribulations singers undergo – this book of humorous drawings is the result.
