Over the past decade, Emma Rush has established herself as one of Canada’s preeminent classical guitarists. Known for her innovative programming and powerful stage presence, an event with Rush is one to remember. Her career has commanded world recognition with recent highlights including a tour of China starting with the Altamira Shanghai International Guitar Festival, appearances at the Festival de Guitarras Lagos de Moreno (Mexico), the Lonestar Guitar Festival(Texas), and a prestigious concert at the famed Internationales Gitarren Symposion, Iserlohn (Germany). She performs throughout North America with upcoming appearances in Philadelphia (PA), Louisville (KY), Buffalo (NY), and many Canadian dates as a soloist and chamber musician. As a soloist with orchestra, Rush will be performing Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez with the Cambridge Symphony Orchestra and Symphony on the Bay in Burlington.

Folklórica, Rush’s much-anticipated debut CD, was released in the fall of 2014. She is on faculty at Mohawk College and Redeemer University College. She completed her graduate studies at the Hochschule für Music in Detmold, Germany and holds a BMus from Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia.
