Emma Rose Lynn is a versatile musician in demand for repertoire that spans the medieval to modern periods. She has a deep love of chamber music, and has been profiled by both the Seattle Times and the Eugene Weekly for her entrepreneurial approach in making art song readily accessible to modern audiences. Building community through music is one of her driving passions in life, and she seeks to build bridges and bring people together in celebration of live music.
As an academic, her most recent work investigates the intersection of contemporary feminist discourse and Historical Performance Practice. Her paper entitled "Harvey Weinstein and the Beautiful Miller's Daughter" received rave reviews at the 2018 Musicking Conference for its incisive examination of the way the stories we tell in classical music can reflect and perpetuate sexist tropes in the modern era.
She finds her greatest joy in ensemble singing. In 2018, she appeared alongside Seraphic Fire at the Professional Choral institute at Aspen Music Festival and was selected to sing the Pie Jesu in the Fauré Requiem for conductor Patrick Dupré Quigley at the inaugural concert of this historic collaboration. She is a member of the polyphonic Renaissance ensemble Vox Resonat, and sang at the 2017 World Symposium on Choral Music under director Sharon J. Paul.
Equally at home as a soloist, 2018 has held solo recital debuts with Baroque ensemble More Maiorum and the Jefferson Baroque Orchestra, as well as a multi-state concert tour of Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin. She is one half of a collaborative duo with pianist Andrew Pham founded in 2017, and together they work to champion Art Song throughout the Pacific Northwest.
In 2017 she debuted at the Oregon Bach Festival as The Shepherdess in John Blow’s Venus and Adonis, portrayed Amore Celeste in the American premiere of G. B. Bononcini’s La Maddalena ai Piedi di Christo, and brought to life the Oldest Daughter in the world premiere of Anice Thigpen’s Woman of Salt. Roles in previous seasons included Euridice (Gluck), Salome (Stradella), and Ännchen (Weber).
Emma also loves teaching, and runs a private voice studio based in Eugene, Oregon.
