Bio

Emily is a versatile violinist, improviser, and composer whose musical endeavors have taken her around the world. Whether looping her own music through her laptop, shredding over pop guitar riffs, playing mozart quartets, improvising over Indian ragas or playing with the latest in EDM, she is a fearless collaborator and dynamic performer who can move with fluidity through many styles. Emily recently returned to New York after a six month tour in Germany as the featured violin soloist in the Franco Dragone show INDIA performing music by the legendary Bollywood film composer A.R Raman for audiences of 2,000 people nightly. In 2009, Emily was featured as the solo fiddler in the world-premiere musical Call of the Wild at the Olney Theater Center. Additionally, she has performed as a soloist with the Nevada Chamber Symphony and the Henderson Civic Symphony, and has taken part in many summer festivals, including the Aspen Music Festival, Pierre Monteux School, the Opera Theater and Music Festival of Lucca, Italy, the Indiana University Summer String Academy, and Meadowmount School of Music. As a representative of the non-profit organization Arts Education International, Emily has traveled to Sierra Leone twice in the past year to help establish arts and music programs for orphaned and abandoned children. Having completed her Suzuki pedagogy training under the private supervision of William Starr, Emily has held teaching positions at the Lucy Moses School, the Brooklyn College-Conservatory Prep Program, Boulder Suzuki Strings, Pine Mountain Music Festival, and La Greve Summer Music Program in Geneva, Switzerland, and the Long Ridge Music Center in Stamford, Connecticut, where she served as the Suzuki strings department chair in 2009. Emily received her Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance from the University of Colorado, Boulder, where she studied with Judith Ingolfsson. Other influential teachers and mentors include Mary Straub, Won-Bin Yim, Ivan Straus, Tanya Kalmanovitch and Todd Reynolds.
