Violinist Emily Nebel is enjoying a varied career as concertmaster, recitalist and chamber musician. She has appeared as soloist with several orchestras, including the Cleveland Orchestra and Phoenix Symphony, and most recently completed a tour of Britten’s Violin Concerto throughout Germany. As a recitalist, she and her duo partner, Alexey Pudinov, have frequently performed together around the greater Frankfurt area and look forward to further engagements in London, Manchester and Berlin.
An avid chamber musician, Emily has been invited to numerous chamber music seminars, most notably Prussia Cove International Musicians Seminar and Open Chamber Music, North York Moors Chamber Music Festival, Domaine Forget’s chamber music session, and Birdfoot Festival in New Orleans. She has also participated in several orchestra festivals around the world, bringing her to such venues as Carnegie Hall, Berlin Konzerthaus and Salzburger Großes Festspielhaus. Most recently, Emily has appeared as guest concertmaster with such orchestras as the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Staatstheater Darmstadt, Neubrandenburger Philharmonie, and Norrköping Symphony Orchestra in Sweden.
In addition to her Classical career, Emily maintains a keen interest in other genres of music. At age 12, she was the youngest ever winner of the Arizona State Fiddle Championship, shortly thereafter recording a CD of her favorite fiddle tunes. Since then, she has studied jazz improvisation at Mark O’Connor’s String Camp, Rice University and the Conservatoire de Paris. She feels that exploring other genres has helped shape her as a musician and plans to continue expanding her horizons.
