April 12, 2013 Friday @ 8 p.m. Concert Hall

“An absolute wonder.” — The New York Times

Called “the first lady of the flute,” Paula Robison is “a rare artist who can make the flute sound both sensuous and classically pure.” (The New York Times) Robison burst onto the international music scene in 1966 when she won First Prize at the Geneva Competition, the first American ever to receive this honor. She has enjoyed a career that has spanned over four decades, performing at the United Nations, the White House, on television’s Live from Lincoln Center and The Today Show, and at major concert halls and music festivals in the U.S. and abroad. An energetic ambassador for her instrument, Robison has released multiple critically acclaimed recordings and authored several books on the art of flute playing. Visit for more information.
