Fueled by a sense of curiosity and discovery, violinist Emily Hale’s performances have been described as animated, intuitive and elegant. Emily has recorded with the Early Opera Company for a BBC Channel 4 series about life in the 18th century, and performed at the Valetta International Baroque Music Festival in Malta and the London Handel Festival. She has collaborated with the Four Nations Ensemble, the Sebastians, and Emmanuel Music. With her ensemble The Halfmoon, Emily curates multi-disciplinary events that connect early music and culture with our lives today. Her project Vanitas explored the 17th-century art concept focused on the fleetingness of life and pleasure, combining the music of Monteverdi and his contemporaries, poetry of the period, and an on-site illustrator. Her Pajama Concerts at libraries and schools offer innovative “musical story-telling,” pairing classic children’s literature with chamber music in an open, inclusive format.

Emily holds degrees from the Royal College of Music in London (MPerf), where she won the McKenna Prize for Baroque Music, from Penn State University (MMus) and Houghton College (BMus). She is on the faculty of the Elizabethtown College Summer Music Camp, Early Music Week in Conway, NH, and has coached baroque ensembles in the Junior Department of the Royal College of Music.
