Emily Greenleaf (Mezzo-soprano)

Born: May 11, 1987 - Ohio, USA

The American mezzo-soprano, voice teacher and movement educator, Emily Grace Greenleaf, started her formal musical studies as a pianist, but switched to voice because of the enormous practicality of an instrument that can walk around on its own two feet. Her love of early music was sparked in college, where she performed as both singer and player of viola da gamba and vielle with the Oberlin Collegium Musicum under the direction L. Dean Nuernberger.

Emily Greenleaf has also worked as composer and performer with the Seattle and Beijing-based Susie Lee Ensemble producing two, concert-length works combining live music, dance and new-media sculpture, Swimming the List (2012) and For These Unclosings (2009). In recent years, she has studied anatomy and movement with Swiss movement educator Eric Franklin, and since 2007 she teaches healthy movement techniques to singers and instrumentalists who want to develop a deeper understanding of whole-bodied technique (and feel better along the way).
