Emily is a recent graduate of University of Northwestern-St Paul. She has been a part of theater productions – at the professional, community, and educational levels – as a music director, rehearsal accompanist and keys player. Among her accomplishments are more than 10 years of successful showings at competitions across Minnesota and South Dakota, including winning the Concerto Competition at University of Northwestern-St. Paul in 2014.

4 GIVIN’ Gospel Quartet is made up of four seasoned singers and an accompanying keyboardist. The quartet was formed in 2009 after singing together in the St. Andrews Lutheran Church Choir. They later added the keyboardist and have used their music to share their love for the Lord ever since!
