Deborah DeWolf Emery
Born and raised in Iowa, Deborah DeWolf Emery began studying piano before she started school and performed in her first piano competition in Chicago in the 3rd grade. By the time she entered the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music, she had won prizes in piano competitions sponsored by the Music Teachers’ National Association, the Federated Music Clubs, the Woman’s Association of the Minnesota Symphony, the American College of Music, and others. While at Oberlin, Ms. Emery discovered the joys of chamber music and has worked as a collaborative artist, and accompanist, and an orchestral pianist ever since. She has had the pleasure of performing in recitals with members of nearly all the major orchestras and music schools in this country, as well as many notable soloists. She is a member of the Deerfield Trio, the Boston Chamber Ensemble “Callisto,” and is one of the pianists for the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Besides her studies with John Perry and Jack Radunsky, she has studied with Andre Watts at Tanglewood.
