A member of the Rose Ensemble, she has also performed with The Singers MCA, MN Chorale, Cathedral of St. Paul, and Apollo Master Chorale, and has appeared with Oratory, Elm Ensemble, and First Readings Project. Emma Rose Lynn (‘13) is a soprano currently pursuing a master's degree in vocal performance as a Graduate Teaching Fellow at the University of Oregon. Profiled by the Seattle Times as an "eloquent and charming soprano" for her entrepreneurial work founding the Northwest Chapter of Groupmuse, she enjoys pushing the boundaries of the concert hall by bring classical music into non-traditional spaces. Johanna Kvam ('13) is a versatile pianist with experience and interest across a wide range of styles, from Broadway and jazz standards to opera and art song.
