I am a classically trained flutist, with a Bachelor of Arts in Flute Performance from Peabody Institute, where I studied with Marina Piccinini. In Sept 2020, I joined the competitive flute studio of 1er flute solo of Orchestre de Paris, Vincent Lucas.
While at Peabody, I also studied orchestral playing Laurie Sokoloff (piccolo) and Emily Skala (principal flutist of the BSO). My classical training covered baroque, classical, romantic and contemporary repertoire and performance practice. Upon graduating from Peabody Institute I received the Grace Clagett Prize for Chamber Music for my work in chamber music. I was also principal flute for several seasons with the Peabody Concert Orchestra, Peabody Modern Orchestra, and Now Hear This! ensemble (the school's premier contemporary ensemble). While studying this rarified, beautiful practice of classical flute, I have strived to bring my music to a wide range of audiences, often playing excerpts and flute solos on street corners during my travels, and bringing my chamber groups to unorthodox venues.
