Praised by The New York Times for her “elegant solowork,” and by The Strad magazine for her “dazzling passagework,” Dr. Emily Ondracek-Peterson’s multifaceted pursuits embody the scope, versatility, and ability required for a successful music career in the twenty-first century.

Making her solo début with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the age of 16, she has since performed as soloist with the New York Philharmonic and in hundreds of concerts at renowned venues as first violinist of the Voxare String Quartet. Ondracek-Peterson has written and lectured extensively about entrepreneurship and career development for conservatory-trained musicians.

With flutist and arts advocate Eugenia Zukerman, she founded Noted Endeavors, which publishes in association with Musical America videos excerpted from interviews with leading artists and administrators. Dr. Ondracek-Peterson is the director of both string studies and chamber music—and professor of violin—at Metropolitan State University of Denver; she’s also on faculty at Teachers College, Columbia University. She is a two-time Morse Fellow and was a New York Philharmonic Teaching Artist. She is also co-artistic director of the Crested Butte Music Festival along with her violist husband, Erik Christian Peterson. She received performance degrees from The Juilliard School, and her doctorate in education from Teachers College, Columbia University.
