Emily Walhout grew up playing the cello, but discovered her love for baroque bass lines at Oberlin Conservatory, where she took up the baroque cello and the viola da gamba, thus launching an active career in early music. Ms. Walhout was a founding member of La Luna, and was a member of The King’s Noyse from 1987 through 2004. Ms. Walhout has played viola da gamba or principal cello for the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, Seattle Baroque, Portland Baroque, Les Boréades, Les Violons Du Roy, New York Collegium, and Trinity Consort (Portland, OR). She has toured as a chamber musician throughout North America and Europe, and she has recorded extensively with the Boston Camerata, La Luna, and The King’s Noyse. A resident of Waterown, MA, Ms. Walhout maintains a small studio of private students and coaches several devoted viol consorts.
