Emily Higgins has played the flute since she was 10. Her early love of movie musicals inspired her to pick up the woodwind instrument and pursue a musical career for the past 20 years. She attended the Hartt School at the University of Hartford, where she earned a bachelor’s of music in flute performance. Higgins collaborates with chamber music artists in addition to teaching. She will perform with the Union Symphony Orchestra on Sunday at The Batte Center at Wingate University.
