Emilia Mettenbrink, Violin

Emilia Mettenbrink, a violinist, is a member of the Minnesota Opera Orchestra, a regular guest violinist with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and a substitute violinist for the Minnesota Orchestra. A Minneapolis native, Emilia began violin studies at the age of three and won the Minnesota Sinfonia Young Artist Competition at the age of nine. Emilia has a love for chamber music and enjoys dividing her time between large and small ensemble performance opportunities. Her summer endeavors include a full time position with the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, appearances at the Lakes Area Music Festival, and broadway shows throughout the twin cities. During the pandemic in 2020, Emilia began a concert series from her balcony in St Paul, Minnesota. She loves connecting with audience members, offering notes from the stage, and featured both solo violin works and collaborations with other performing artists in Twin Cities. Emilia, seeking greater impact in her arts community, recently expanded her resume to include a board member position for the Twin Cities Musicians Union, and a position as the Equity Diversity and Inclusion Coordinator for the Minnesota Opera. She also serves as the podcast coordinator for ArtClass; a new arts education offering at Lincoln Center.
