About Emma Hospelhorn:

Praised by the Chicago Classical Review for her “standout” and “joyful” playing, Emma Hospelhorn is a flutist and multi-instrumentalist who creates music that reflects the natural world. As a flutist in Ensemble Dal Niente, Emma has premiered or recorded works by composers including George Lewis, Hilda Paredes, Carola Bauckholt, Jeff Parker, Igor Santos, and hundreds more.
