Music: Emily Aldridge
"Emily Aldridge is a Chicago-born pianist, guitarist, and singer-songwriter. Emily began singing and recording at age 3 with her father, Dave Aldridge, musician/songwriter, and Presbyterian minister. Emily was harmonizing and putting on small family performances by age 5. Her parents recognized her love of making music and immediately enrolled her in a lifelong education. Emily's mother Sarah Aldridge is an avid classical pianist and hand bell player who encouraged Emily to begin singing in choirs throughout the US. Emily spent much of her formative youth in children's choruses, voice lessons, musical theater performance troupes, while balancing her instrument education in piano and guitar.
Attending both Asbury College and University of Kentucky, Emily pursued her vocal studies in Gospel and Jazz techniques while continuing college studies. Currently Emily teaches music lessons throughout North Florida and continues to perform throughout the area with various projects.
Emily's solo project shows various facets of her range and personal style, not to be held down by any genre title or standard. Her music reflects influences in rock, jazz, pop, metal, and R&B.
Emily comes from a musical school of thought that simply wants to love the music one writes and connect to the world through it. An infinite response to the gifts we've been given as musicians." Emily Aldridge
Art: Sue Clancy
About the exhibit “Enjoying Time” Sue Clancy says: “After attending a symphony followed by a multi-course dinner and drinks with friends I began thinking about time; musical time, cooking time… finding, taking and spending time on things that bring joy to life. I thought about how our lives are entirely made up of time and it’s up to us to use our time well. So I began to collect, from my daily life, my own “enjoyable moments” - and recreate them for you with some of my favorite animals.”
