Emilie Chigioni

Emilie was born in Bergamo in 2000, inspired by a strong musical tradition present in her family, she started playing the violin at age 4. She studied in Bergamo, where she had her Bachelor degree in 2019, and in Lugano (Switzerland) where she got accepted in M° Pavel Berman's class at Conservatorio della Svizzera italiana. There she completed the Master of Arts in Music Performance and she is now attending the Master of Arts in Music Pedagogy.
Emilie performed with many orchestras both in Italy and abroad: worth to be mentioned, in 2017 she was selected to be part of the Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra and in 2021 she played in the Enescu Festival with the East-West Chamber Orchestra.
Emilie is very interested in every shade of music and curious about the connection that one can find between music and fine arts, history and literature. She always has been interested in baroque repertoire and in historically informed practice, in fact she is a founding member of the "Ensemble Locatelli'' and she has been chosen by Andrea Marcon to be part of the Frau Musika project.
Emilie is also deeply passionate about chamber music and she has been playing in different formations that go from the piano duo to the small ensemble. For two consecutive years, her duo has been selected to attend the contemporary music courses "CALL for young performers" organized by Divertimento Ensemble in Milano, with the purpose to delve into the music composed from the XX Century until nowadays.
