Paula Robison. I have also benefitted greatly from the mentorship of Leone Buyse, Elizabeth Rowe, Keith Underwood, and Greer Ellison.
As a soloist, I received first prize at the 34th Annual Pappoutsakis Competition and performed my winner's recital in Jordan Hall in September 2014. As a chamber musician, I performed frequently in Jordan Hall with the wind quintet "Philharmonic Five", twice winners of the NEC Honors Ensemble Competition, and with the Borromeo String Quartet as a winner of their Guest Artist Award.
As an orchestral flutist, I have performed under some of the finest conductors of our time, including Christoph von Dohnányi, Rafael Frühbeck, Charles Dutoit, Stéphane Denève, Hugh Wolff, and Stefan Asbury. I was a New World Symphony finalist for the 2014-15 season and have previously played in the New World Symphony, Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, NEC’s Philharmonia Orchestra, Harvard Bach Society Orchestra, and the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra. A particular highlight of my summer at Tanglewood was performing alongside the Boston Symphony Orchestra to an audience of over 10,000!
I have been a long-time fan and attendee of the Northern California Flute Camp, most recently as Faculty Assistant in 2012. When I was 14, I wrote a short piece for flute quartet called Firestorm which won honorable mention in National Flute Association’s 2005 Newly Published Music Competition and was performed at the 2006 National Flute Convention.
