Emily Hunter is a fourth-year student pursuing a B.A. in Cognitive Science with a Neuroscience concentration and a B.A. in Music. She has been playing flute since she was 10 years old and currently studies with Professor Kelly Sulick. In high school she was a National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) Youth Fellow, where she was mentored by NSO musicians and performed on the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage. As a member of American Youth Philharmonic Orchestra (AYPO) she was principal flute and was a member of a chamber quintet. Emily has placed first in several music competitions and attended the Governor's School for Visual and Performing Arts at age 16. Emily studied classical music in Vienna, Austria with Dr. Furugh Karimi last spring.

At UVA, she has been involved in the Charlottesville Symphony Orchestra and has participated in the Miller Arts Scholars Program, where she served on the executive board. She has received the 3rd and 4th year Arts Awards, along with three mini-grants from Miller Arts Scholars. These projects have included funding to attend performances of the New York Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras, purchasing a wooden flute headjoint, and funding for private lessons. 

After graduation, Emily plans to pursue advanced degrees in music and healthcare.

This recital is supported by the Charles S. Roberts Scholarship Fund. Established in 2004 by the generosity of Mr. Alan Y. Roberts ('64) and Mrs. Sally G. Roberts, the Charles S. Roberts Scholarship Fund underwrites the private lessons and recital costs for undergraduate music majors giving a recital in their fourth year as part of a distinguished major program in music. To see all of our Distinguished Major Recitals please visit https://music.virginia.edu/student-recitals.
