Emily Daggett Smith is a celebrated young violinist and chamber musician. In 2009, Ms. Smith won first prize at the Juilliard concerto competition and made her New York debut in Alice Tully Hall, playing the Beethoven violin concerto with the Juilliard Orchestra, under the direction of Emmanuel Villaume.
In 2008, she was appointed concertmaster of the Juilliard Orchestra and has led the ensemble under the direction of Michael Tilson-Thomas, Nicholas McGegan, and James DePriest. She has traveled with the orchestra to Beijing and Shanghai, as well as across the United States, performing in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Disney Hall in LA, and Symphony Hall in Boston. In addition to her work as a solo and orchestral musician, Ms. Smith is an active chamber musician. She has performed with such artists as Claude Frank, Joseph Kalichstein, and Orion Weiss, in Alice Tully Hall, Weill Hall, Symphony Space, and Zankel Hall.
In 2005, she won Gold Medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in the junior division with the Alisier Trio. She is also the founding first violinist of the Tessera Quartet, an emerging New York-based ensemble, formed under the guidance of the Juilliard String Quartet. The Tessera Quartet has recently collaborated with Claude Frank and Lowell Liebermann and will record Liebermann’s complete quartets for Koch records.
Born in 1987, Ms. Smith grew up in the Boston area. She won various competitions in New England and performed violin concerti with the Brockton, Newton, and Waltham symphonies.

For nine summers she attended Greenwood Music Camp in Cummington, Massachusetts, which fostered her deep love of chamber music. In honor of Greenwood’s 75th anniversary, Ms. Smith performed Saint-Saens’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso with the Greenwood orchestra at the Hatch Shell in Boston.
In 2009 Ms. Smith received her Bachelors of Music from The Juilliard School, where she is now pursuing graduate studies. Her teachers have included Donald Weilerstein, Nick Eanet, Laurie Smukler, Joel Smirnoff, and Masuko Ushioda. Ms. Smith lives in New York City.

Marnie has been the recipient of numerous awards and prizes, including awards from The Canadian Music Competitions, the BC Arts Council, Friends of Chamber Music, Performing Arts BC, and the Vancouver Women’s Musical Club. Most recently she won first prize at the Canadian Music Teachers’ Association National piano competition in Calgary, Alberta. In 2000, she was awarded the Gold Medal for receiving the highest mark in Canada on the A.R.C.T. piano performance exams, and she also holds an L.R.S.M. performance diploma from the Associated Board in London, England.
She has performed as a soloist with several orchestras, including the B.C. Chamber Orchestra, the Vancouver Academy Orchestra, and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
