Dance Sketches Review 9/10 StarsHarp Column Magazine - "It’s a combination of the virtuosity of the individual players­­—Marguerite Lynn Williams, Julie Spring, Catherine Yom Litaker, and Emily Ann Granger—and the fiery conversation they have as a group that grabs from the first notes."

soirées d’été CD Review" I must tell you I hear superb playing, virtuosas clearly enjoying cramming together four giant instruments and making music not in the solitude of the back of an orchestra counting rests before a big solo or in a frilly outfit playing non-stop for a fancy party."

"Overall, a well-played album with superb choice of repertoire"

I walked the Camino de Santiago!I spent one month from December 19 to January 23 walking across Spain with my dearest friends, Michael and Lesley. We began our walk in the French Pyrenees and walked all the way to the Atlantic Ocean some 900 kilometres/550 miles.
Emily finishes Te Araroa Trail!Four and a half months, 3,000 kilometers, 4 million steps, a lost boot, a few slips and lots of blisters I walked the length of New Zealand. From Cape Reinga to Bluff, both the North and South Islands, this was my greatest adventure and biggest achievement of my life. http://www.teararoa.org.nz
Sydney Opera House Debut REVIEW! 4/5 Stars"Virtuosic and versatile, an evening showing off the neglected riches of the recorder and the harp."

"Granger and Crossley should of course be commended for their musical skill and technical prowess, after a concert of largely faultless, well-executed playing, but for constructing an evening of such bold, uncompromising, pioneering music they deserve a standing ovation. Trailblazers, while not always popular, should be fearless, and this was a performance that wasn’t just brave, but also brilliant."

"Emily is Chicago's great loss and our great gain... since coming here (she) has firmly established herself as an outstanding addition to the Australian concert scene." - Sydney Arts Guide

Growing up in Kansas City Missouri, Emily began playing the harp at age 11.

About The Artist
Recently completing a residency in Cuba, the Chicago Harp Quartet comprises artists who have individually regularly been heard with the city’s major ensembles— the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Lyric Opera and Civic Orchestras, and the Chicago Philharmonic, among others—and have performed together on the stages of Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. In addition to performing original transcriptions of classics, the quartet also regularly commissions new works and collaborates with such cutting-edge artists as Third Coast Percussion and Ho Etsu Taiko, leading to its featured performance at the Lyon & Healy 150th anniversary gala and its debut CD, Soirées d’été.

Belsazzar's Feast, Sydney Symphony Orchestra
Sydney Opera House
Experience the decadent grandeur of Walton's Belshazzar's Feast and the humour and drama of a new secular oratorio in this choral-orchestral spectacular.

The writing's on the wall for Belshazzar in Walton's monumental choral-symphony. The Old Testament story calls for music of 'savage splendour', as ferocious and indulgent as the king himself, and Belshazzar's Feast is easily the most sensational music for choir and orchestra ever written. For Hungarian Peter Eötvös, composing means enchanting his audience through sound, and his new oratorio (co-commissioned by the SSO and recently premiered in Salzburg) does exactly that. His chorus sings 'Hallelujas' quoted from different periods in music. His protagonist, the tenor, delivers prophecies with a stammer (the subtitle is literally 'Stammering Oratorio'). The secular text is a serious commentary on the world today – 'We put up fences everywhere...' – and yet the music is infused with humour. We can't wait to introduce this new work to Australian audiences!
