Featuring music from Emily Bear
Emily Bear began her creative journey as a five year-old piano prodigy on Ellen, followed by performances on some of the world’s most iconic stages – including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Hollywood Bowl and The Montreux Jazz Festival.
A global performer and composer, Emily has received the highest accolades across musical styles, including ASCAP Concert Music Composer of the Year, Herb Alpert Jazz Composer of the Year, W Magazine’s “It Girl” of the Year, and a recent award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Her mentor, none other than Quincy Jones, produced her jazz debut CD. A scoring talent for film and television, Emily recently composed two songs for the film Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase and performed the score for A Dog’s Journey.
