“I love to play second violin!”. Ensemble playing is for Emily a passion and for us a big fortune and pleasure to play with her!
Emily Körner was born in Illinois, USA and grew up in Canada. She studied at The Juilliard School in New York with Sally Thomas and Joel Smirnoff. As a scholarship recipient of the Canada Council and Huntington Beebe Fund, she moved to Berlin in 1995, where she continued her studies with Professors Uwe-Martin Haiberg and Mi-Kyung Lee at the Hochschule der Künste.
From 1998 to 2000 she was the solo violinist of the “Palastorchester with its singer Max Raabe.” Before joining the SWR Symphonie Orchester as principal second violin in 2002, she held the same position for two years in the Radiophilharmonie Hannover of the NDR (Northern German Radio). In addition, she is an honorary professor of violin at the State University of Music and the Performing Arts Stuttgart.
As an highly regarded chamber music player, she plays with the Hegel-Quartett.
