Violinist Emily Dahl is an active performer known for her inventive and intuitive style. She enjoys a diverse career ranging from broadway musicals to baroque opera - especially baroque opera! Emily’s concentration in historical performance has led to her playing internationally under luminaries within the early music field including Rachel Podger, Maasaki Suzuki, and John Eliot Gardiner. Performing works from the most grand to the most intimate, career highlights include the St Matthew Passion at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and a Beethoven-themed salon concert using an 1807 Broadwood piano identical to the composer’s own.
Recognized throughout Boston for her poised and gracious sound, Emily can be heard with the Handel and Haydn Society, Les Bostonades, and Cambridge Concentus. An eager proponent of new ventures, she is a core member of Grand Harmonie and at least two unnamed string quartets, ideas welcome! Venturing further afield, she appears regularly with the American Baroque Orchestra (New Haven) and Baroque Band (Chicago) A curiosity to study abroad led her first to Rice University (Texas...) and then to the Royal Academy in London, where she was granted a full scholarship. Though an avid tea drinker, her desire for occasional sunlight inspired her to return to New England. Emily now lives in Jamaica Plain where she happily investigates local bakeries and ice cream.
