Lindsey Goodman, flutist

Lindsey Goodman is known for her “generous warmth of tone and a fluid virtuosity” (Charleston Gazette), and for her “impressive artistry” (Tribune-Review), “agility, and emotion” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). Renowned for her “brilliant”, “bravura performances” (Tribune-Review), Ms. Goodman is in high demand as a soloist, chamber collaborator, orchestral musician, teacher, and clinician.

As a soloist, Lindsey was most recently featured in her New York City recital debuts presented by the Phoenix Concerts and PRISM Projects; as concerto soloist with the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, the Bach and Beyond International Baroque Soloists (NY), the River Cities Symphony Orchestra (OH), and the Marietta College Wind Ensemble (OH); in “a near perfect recital” (Daily Mail) presented by the Charleston Chamber Music Society (WV); and as the guest artist for Ohio University’s Flute Fest and Marshall University’s FluteWorks festival (WV). Goodman has performed as a featured soloist at the National Flute Association Convention (IL and NC), the June in Buffalo festival (NY), the NewSound Festival presented by the Ethos New Music Society (NY), the Sound Series at the Andy Warhol Museum (PA), the Marshall University New Music Festival (WV), and at Walfrid Kujala’s retirement gala (IL). In the past five seasons, she has presented recitals at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Ohio State University, Bowling Green State University (OH), Ohio University, Duquesne University (PA), University of Akron (OH), West Virginia University, Capital University (OH), University of Mount Union (OH), Ashland University (OH), Frostburg State University (MD), and Allegheny College (PA). Lindsey’s interpretations of Mathew Rosenblum’s Under the Rainbow for flute and soundtrack on New World Records, and Russell Pinkston's Lizamander for flute and electronics on the CD against the emptiness are commercially available, and she has been featured in radio broadcasts on WQXR (NYC), WQED (PA), WMRT (OH), and West Virginia Public Radio.

An avid performer of new music, “flutist Lindsey Goodman appears to know no fear in tackling the most demanding music” (Tribune-Review). A strong advocate for emerging composers and electroacoustic or multimedia works, Lindsey is an active commissioner of new pieces, and has given nearly seventy world premieres, including twenty-five solo and chamber compositions written especially for her. Goodman is in her fourteenth season as solo flutist of the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, a group with whom she has recorded two CDs and a DVD, made two international tours, been featured eleven times as soloist, and currently serves as a member of the board of directors. Additionally, Lindsey has performed contemporary chamber music at Carnegie Hall (NYC) on the invitation of John Adams and David Robertson, with the new music band Alarm Will Sound in the Miller Theatre (NYC), as flutist/actress at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (UK), with Music on the Edge (PA), for FestivALL (WV), and as guest artist on the Fresh Ink Music Series (NC). Ms. Goodman, with collaborator Robert Frankenberry, is co-founder of Chrysalis, a transformative duo commissioning works for singing flutist and singing pianist. With musical partners Scott Christian and Anne Waltner, Goodman is also co-founder of ASS3MBLY, a flute, percussion, and piano trio, championing both master and emerging composers for the instrumentation.

As an orchestral musician, Goodman holds the Martha Gaines Wehrle Chair in her eighth season as principal flutist of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, and can be heard on both of the orchestra’s CD releases. Lindsey has also performed with the Toledo (OH), Akron (OH), Lima (OH), and River Cities (WV) Symphony Orchestras; the Fort Wayne (IN), Erie (PA), and Tuscarawas (OH) Philharmonics; the Ohio Valley and New World Symphonies (FL), and is an associate musician with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra (OH). Ms. Goodman is on faculty at Marietta College (OH) as adjunct lecturer of flute, and at CODA Mountain Academy of Music, a summer festival in Fayetteville, West Virginia. During the 2013 - 2014 academic year, Goodman was also interim adjunct instructor of flute at Ashland University (OH). Additionally, Lindsey is sought after as a clinician, giving flute master classes and presentations on music careers and entrepreneurship, working with electronics, and the commissioning process to students at twenty-two universities and colleges across seven states in the last four seasons.

During the 2014 - 2015 season, Lindsey looks forward to recording her debut solo CD of commissions on the New Dynamic Records records label; performing a solo electroacoustic recital at the Ogle Center at Indiana University Southeast; concerto appearances at the University of Sioux Falls (SD) with both the Wind Ensemble and Chamber Orchestra; performing as featured soloist at the Bowling Green State University (OH) New Music Festival; making a return visit to the University of Colorado at Boulder to give a flute masterclass, chamber recital, and presentations at the Entrepreneurship Center for Music; giving the world premieres of new chamber works by composers Jeffrey Nytch and Kieren MacMillan; and programming, organizing, and playing the second season of concerts for The Kanawha Forum 2.0 (WV) as artistic adviser and coordinator. Ms. Goodman’s trio ASS3MBLY will make three tours across four states this season, including concerts at West Liberty University (WV), West Virginia State University, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Marshall University (WV), Marietta College, the Ariel Theatre Chamber Series (OH), and the Studio Subscription Series (SD). In addition to premiering newly-commissioned works by Randall Woolf and Erich Stem, ASS3MBLY will also record John Allemeier’s Bolamkin for CD release; develop a panel presentation on chamber music, commissioning, and entrepreneurship; and engage in educational outreach.

A student of New York Philharmonic principal flutist Robert Langevin, Lindsey also studied with Walfrid Kujala, former principal piccolo of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. She received her masters degree from Northwestern University, her bachelors degree summa cum laude from Duquesne University, and a professional studies diploma from the Manhattan School of Music’s orchestral performance program. Born in Virginia and raised in Ohio, Ms. Goodman resides in Columbus, Ohio with her husband and dog. There, she maintains an active teaching studio with students who have won state and regional honors as soloists and ensemble members, and trains as a classical mezzo-soprano. “{A} soprano of uncommon precision” (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review), Ms. Goodman gave her professional vocal debut with Opera Theatre Pittsburgh (PA) in 2009, her New York City vocal debut in 2011, and her soloist debut with the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra in 2012. Lindsey has also sung with the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble (PA), on the Marshall University New Music Festival (WV), the Davidson College Concert Series (NC), and The Kanawha Forum 2.0 (WV), has commissioned six works for singing flutist, and can be heard singing on recital events throughout central Ohio.
