In the Spring of 2022, she joined the faculty of Mount Holyoke College as a visiting professor.
Emi Ferguson stretches the boundaries of what is expected of modern-day musicians. Her unique approach to the flute can be heard in performances that alternate between the Silver Flute, Historical Flutes, and Auxiliary Flutes. As a historical Flutist, she is Principal Flute of the Handel and Haydn Society, and is a frequent guest artist with period ensembles including Tafelmusik. She is on the faculty of the Juilliard School.
Stephanie Vial performs regularly in early music ensembles throughout the US and has given solo and chamber music concerts, lectures, and master classes at numerous universities including The University of Virginia, Duke University, and The Curtis Institute of Music. She is co-director of the period instrument ensemble The Vivaldi Project and is on the faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill.
Paolo Bordignon is harpsichordist of the New York Philharmonic and has appeared with Camerata Pacifica, Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra & Boston Symphony Chamber Players, among others.
