Emily Nebel — Violin
Emily Nebel, violinist, has established herself as an innovative young artist and collaborator in both the United States and Europe. Since her arrival in Frankfurt in 2014, she has given recitals in such venues as the Alte Oper Mozartsaal and Bad Homburger Schlosskirche and regularly plays with Frankfurt’s prestigious Radio and Opera orchestras. An active chamber musician, Emily performs with her colleague Alexey Pudinov along with several other professors and students from the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst, where she is currently in the class of Sophia Jaffé. Previously, she studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music, Conservatoire National Supérieur de Danse et de Musique de Paris and, most recently, Rice University in Houston, Texas, where she frequently returns to record and perform with the Rogue Ensemble.
Emily has appeared as soloist with several orchestras, including the Cleveland Orchestra and Phoenix Symphony, and looks forward to performing Britten’s Violin Concerto with the Landesjugendsinfonieorchester Hessen in 2017. She has also been invited to numerous chamber music seminars, orchestra festivals, and master classes over the years, most notably Prussia Cove International Musicians Seminar and Open Chamber Music, Kronberg Academy Geigen Meisterkurse, Toronto Summer Music Festival, Spoleto Festival USA, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, and New York String Orchestra Seminar. Studying jazz and improvisation with professors in both Paris and Houston, participating in Mark O’Connor’s String Camps, along with attending jam sessions and winning the Arizona State Fiddle Championship in 2003, have provided her with an arsenal of genres that has contributed to her musical development in extraordinary ways.
