Emily Fletcher

This month, we’re so happy to recognize 11-year-old violinist, Emily Fletcher. Emily has been playing for 5 years. She also studies piano and trumpet and takes mandolin lessons from her dad. Emily performs with the Metropolitan Youth Symphony, she competes in fiddle competitions, and last year she sang in her first musical, Into the Woods. She says playing keeps her calm and happy, and she loves singing and harmonizing with her two sisters. Her other interests include wood burning, sewing, reading, and running. Congratulations to Emily Fletcher!
