Bravo Niagara! Presents Emily Bear
At age 16, Pianist/Composer/Songwriter Emily Bear is one of the most astonishing and prolific musical talents of our time – arranging, orchestrating, and performing in an astonishingly diverse collection of styles. Having made her professional debut at the Ravinia Festival at 5 years old, she has since performed at many of the worlds’ most well known venues including Carnegie Hall, the White House, Lincoln Center, Montreux Jazz Festival, Blue Note, Ravinia, and the Hollywood Bowl, among others. Her concerts have taken her to concert halls across the U. S. and Europe and Asia and her love for all musical styles ranges from pop, classical, jazz, and everything in between. Lately, she has been singing and writing all genres of pop music with many of the top songwriters and producers in the industry.
At age 6, Emily was the youngest to ever receive the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award and symphonies all over the world have performed her original orchestral pieces. She is the 2016 and 2017 recipient of the ASCAP Herb Alpert Jazz Composer of the Year Award, and the 2015 Young Composer of the Year Award for concert music.
Emily appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show 6 times in 2 years, performing an original song she composed for each appearance. She has been featured nationally and internationally on TV and print including the Disney Channel, ABC Nightline, Katie Couric Show, Queen Latifah Show, Dancing With the Stars, Good Morning America, Australia Sunday Night Channel 7, Germany SAT1, and others.
