Emily Lanzone (Cox) earned her BM in violin performance from the University of Oregon, MM from the University of Nevada, Reno, and a Professional Studies Diploma from the San Francisco Concervatory of Music. Her principal teachers have included Kathryn Gray, Kathleen Winkler, Kathy Luckterberg, Stephanie Sant'Ambrogio, and Axel Strauss. Since moving to the Central Coast in 2011, Emily has been a member of the SLO Symphony, along with other area ensembles such as the Symphony of the Vines, OperaSLO, and Santa Maria Philharmonic. She also plays with the Santa Cruz County Symphony, and the Oregon Coast Music Festival in Coos Bay, OR. Emily teaches at Cal Poly University and works with the SLO Youth Symphony, while maintaining a private studio of violin and viola students. Although she specializes in orchestral performance, Emily's first love is chamber music, a passion which took her abroad to northern Italy in the summer of 2011 for the Zephyr Chamber Music Festival.
