Ambitious, talented and smart, horn player Emily Green is just 17 years old. But already she has her eye on bigger classical music goals. Emily is the co-founder of Young Musicians of Minnesota and plays with a number of student ensembles in the Twin Cities. Yet her number one goal is to be the CEO of the Minnesotan Orchestra. She's given herself 10 years to accomplish that!

Emily's playlist is filled with works that she's passionate about; in many instances, works that she's only recently been introduced to.

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4 "Allegro con fuoco " (finale) with the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Rafael Kubelik. EMI 68223

Debussy: Claire de Lune "Moonlight" with pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet (excerpt). London 460 247

Stravinsky: The Firebird (finale) with the Minnesota Orchestra conducted by Stanislaw Skrowaczewski. Vox 3016

Sibelius: Finlandia with the Lahti Symphony Orchestra conducted by Osmo Vanska. BIS 575

You can also read an essay Emily wrote for Classical MPR in December: "Young Musicians of Minnesota: How we banded together for the music we love."

Next week: Bruce Broquist is a professional baker and a professional choral singer. How does he do it all? His playlist is the clue.
