Graduating Student Recital • WATER COLUMNS • Emily Roberts, composer

Friday • May 12, 2023   |   4:00 pm 5:00 pm

This Graduating Student Recital will be presented as part of the Begin Anywhere Festival and will take place in the Dalcroze Room.

All Longy students present full recitals as part of their education and ongoing evolution as artists. They are charged with thinking critically about what stories they tell, whose voices to amplify, and who’s in the room for their event while also considering how to use performance spaces in innovative ways and how to truly engage audiences and create interactive music experiences. 

Emily Roberts is a student of Alexandra du Bois.

A water column is a conceptual, vertical expense of water stretching between the surface and the floor of a body of water to provide a visual understanding of what exists beneath the surface.

Many scientific topics, specifically earth science and concepts pertaining to water, strongly influence my work as a composer. I find countless parallels and points of connection between music and scientific concepts, constantly giving new layers of meaning to the music that I create.

Much of my work utilizes electronics in some capacity to better explore these ideas, and aims to create a genre-blended sonic world that combines classical and romantic music with folk, rock, pop, and electronic elements.
