The Santa Fe Concert Association presents Emily Bear, who has appeared everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the White House, including Jazz at Lincoln Center, and in concerts in China, Vienna, Italy and Spain. The Orchestra will present selections including classics, jazz and Emily’s original compositions.
Eleven year old Emily Bear began piano studies with Emilio del Rosario at The Music Institute of Chicago. She currently studies classical piano, jazz improvisation, and film scoring. Emily is equally comfortable playing jazz, classical, or her own compositions.
When she was five years old, Emily made her professional debut performing a solo concert at the Ravinia Music Festival. She is the youngest performer in Ravinia’s more than 100-year history.
Emily made her international debut, performing two solo recitals at the Asissi of The World Festival in Umbria, Italy and a solo concert in Hangzhou, China. She was presented by Quincy Jones to perform at the 45th annual Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and Festival de Castell in Peralada, Spain. At age 7, she was the youngest student ever to be invited to study at The Aspen Music Festival.
Emily has recorded five CD’s of original music, has produced three sheet music songbooks which are distributed internationally by Hal Leonard Publishing, the world's largest music print publisher. Profits from each of her CD’s and songbooks are donated to the following charities: Susan G. Komen for The Cure, UNICEF, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and The Children’s Hospitals of Los Angeles and Chicago.
The SFCA Orchestra had been under the leadership of Joseph Illick since 2008, building a strong reputation as a band that plays with excellent ensemble, rich tone, and passionate sweep. The orchestra is comprised not only of the finest players in Northern New Mexico but also of visiting artists from New York, Philadelphia, Washington, and Phoenix.
