Event description
Emi Ferguson: Baroque-pop Flute Virtuoso

About this event

English-American flute virtuoso and composer Emi Ferguson mixes it up with Frankly Music this December. Our Saturday evening program features intertwined selections from Paul Simon, Emi's own composition, various selections from J.S. Bach --- plus the local premiere of Air in Motion by composer Pierre Jalbert. A string quartet of Frank Almond and crew, plus Emi as vocalist join in for some incredibly delightful and boundary-stretching music.

Also featuring:

Lijia Phang, violin

Samantha Rodriguez, viola

Adrien Zitoun, cello

. . .

In addition to prodigious performances at the age of five for no one but her younger sister, Emi has taken her love of music and performing to wider audiences around the globe. She was a featured performer alongside Yo-Yo Ma, Paul Simon, and James Taylor at the 10th Anniversary Memorial Ceremony of 9/11 at Ground Zero, where her performance of Amazing Grace was televised worldwide. Her performance that day is now part of the permanent collection at the 911 Museum.

She currently teaches Ear Training as a faculty member at The Juilliard School.
