Emily is a born & raised St. Louisan. She has been playing violin for over 30 years, has a BM & MM in Music Performance, and has over 20 years experience playing and helping plan music for weddings, catholic services, and other events.
She attended St. Margaret of Scotland School in the Shaw Neighborhood of St. Louis, MO where she started a Suzuki Violin Program in 2013. The program initially began with only 27 students and grew to over 140 students, ranging in ages 3-14. She also enjoyed teaching General Music to Middle School Students in 6th-8th grades where the focus changed to learning about Music History, Music Theory, and performance on instruments including keyboards, glockenspiels, hand bells, and guitars.
And if you're a native St. Louisan and wondering where she went to high school...
Nerinx Hall in Webster Groves!
Emily has played in many of the known groups & ensembles in the St. Louis area such as the Landolfi String Quartet and Rosewood Ensemble. Emily LOVES working with clients in the St. Louis area and customizing music for their events so she knew she wanted to start her own group/business.
She was often asked by other ensembles for musician recommendations so she knew she had all the best musicians in St. Louis as her friends and colleagues.
As of June 2020, Emily officially created her own ensemble group -
Beau Son Strings & Ensembles, LLC.
The name 'Beau Son' means Beautiful Sounds in French and is in honor of her son, Beau.
Emily currently enjoys performing around the St. Louis area with prestigious groups including the Bach Society of St. Louis, Salem-St. Louis Chamber Orchestra, Winter Opera of St. Louis, Metropolitan Orchestra of St. Louis, and many more.
While Emily is classically trained, she enjoys playing/performing other genres of music including Musicals, Pop, Rock, Country, Indie, and Liturgical music. She has had the great opportunity to perform with famous musicians/groups including
Black Eyed Peas, New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Christine Brewer, Josh Groban, Michael W. Smith, and Amy Grant.
When Emily is not working and growing her music business, practicing, or performing at concerts and other events around town she can be found at home with her husband, two kiddos, and two pups! She loves spending time with her family, finding fun events around the St. Louis area to attend, and just going on family walks.
