Netherlands-based Australian violinist, Emma Williams, has a passion for the historically informed performance of music and holds degrees in both modern and historical violin performance from Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, respectively. Emma regularly performs with leading period instrument groups in Europe and Australia, including Anima Eterna Brugge, Holland Baroque, Kölner Akademie, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, and Australian Romantic and Classical Orchestra. Having grown up singing in national youth choirs, Emma then studied with vocal pedagogues around Australia and Europe and is currently doing a PhD at Leiden University researching the relationship between early-19th-century vocal and violin performance practices. Emma also shares a passion for finding new and exciting ways to connect with audiences. In 2018 she co-founded MusicBox, a collective dedicated to breaking down barriers surrounding classical music, which is both a concert series in The Hague and a podcast called Outside the MusicBox.
