Flutist Lindsey Goodman To Perform, Give Master Class at Allegheny College

March 30, 2012 – The Department of Music at Allegheny College will host flutist Lindsey Goodman on Thursday, April 5. Goodman will conduct a flute master class as well as perform a solo electroacoustic recital. Both are free and open to the public.

Goodman will conduct the master class from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in Room 202 of Arnold Hall. She will perform the solo recital at 7:30 p.m. in Ford Chapel.

The Charleston Gazette has praised Goodman, who has performed as a soloist across the United States and Canada, for her “generous warmth of tone and a fluid virtuosity.”

She holds the Martha Gaines Wehrle Chair in her 5th season as principal flutist of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra and is in her 11th season as solo flutist of the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble. She is on the faculty of Marietta College.

A strong advocate for emerging composers and electroacoustic and multimedia works, Goodman is an active commissioner of new pieces and has given 50 world premieres, including 16 solo and chamber compositions written especially for her.

A student of New York Philharmonic principal flutist Robert Langevin, Goodman also studied with Walfrid Kujala, former principal piccolo of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
