Emily Bookwalter

Brooklyn, NY         

Seldom refusing an opportunity to meet new people through music, Emily is an open-minded collaborator, improviser and freelance violist/singer in New York City. As a faithful advocate for accessible music in communities, Emily is a violist and the External Affairs Manager for the String Orchestra of Brooklyn; a close-knit group of musicians dedicated to the democratization of concert music in Brooklyn. In addition to her time spent with the SOB, she performs regularly with many large and small groups throughout New York City. As a regular member of Brian Carpenter’s Ghost Train Orchestra and Beat Circus, and having most recently performed as an artist-in-residence at the Berkeley Repertory Theater, she also has performed with BeirutOperamission, the Handel Festival Orchestra of New York, the New York Repertory Orchestra, the Reona Ito Chamber Orchestra & Chorus in Carnegie Hall, and others. As a true believer in creating and performing new, contemporary music of our time, she is an avid performer of improvisatory and experimental chamber music with her husband Scott Wollschleger
Before joining the staff at New Music USA in January of 2011, Emily devoted much of her time to both non and for-profit arts organizations, including the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, American Ballet Theatre, Schott Music, Red Light New Music, and Benaroya Hall in Seattle, WA. Emily graduated from Vassar College in 2010, with a BA in Music and a secondary focus in 17th-century English literature. Emily is continually impressed by luthiers and professional cake decorators.
