Emily Slomovits began playing violin at the age of seven, and has been joining her dad and uncle, San and Laz Slomovits, (the family folk duo, Gemini) on stage since she’s been eight years old. She studied classical violin for ten years, adding jazz and folk fiddle styles to her repertoire along the way. In her early teens she also began singing and playing guitar and has been performing alone, with her dad, and with other musicians since then. She’s played in classical string quartets and ensembles, and played and sung in a variety of bands in many different settings. She’s also played in the pit bands of several musicals, was the Fiddler in the Encore Theatre’s 2012 production of Fiddler on the Roof, the Violinist in thePerformance Network’s 2012 production of A Glass Menagerie, and has been a musician in three productions of Shakespeare in the Arb. In 2013, along with her dad, and bassist Jacob Warren, she recorded her first CD, “Innocent When You Dream.”
