Emily Bender


Born into a choral family, Emily was attending choir rehearsals as soon as they would let her. Emily sang in school and church choirs growing up, and sang her first church solo at age 3. At age 10, Emily started performing in musicals, and continued that throughout high school and college. For the past 25 years, Emily has sung and soloed with numerous groups, including: Tanglewood Festival Chorus and Coro Allegro in Boston; San Francisco Bach Choir, Pacific Mozart Ensemble, and Goat Hall Productions. As a member of the Grammy-nominated Pacific Mozart Ensemble she performed in Carnegie Hall singing with the ensemble and soloing as part of the celebration of 40 years of Meredith Monk’s music. In addition to Solstice’s recordings, you can hear Emily on AXIOS, a recording of greek hymns. She holds a BA in French from Oberlin, an MA in Interdisciplinary Art from San Francisco State and a Certificate in Kodály Music Education from Holy Names University. She lives with her wife, Hannah Doress and son Abraham in San Carlos, CA, where she teaches private voice lessons.
