Lindsey Goodman, flutist
Lindsey Goodman is a soloist, recording artist, chamber collaborator, orchestral musician, educator, and clinician.
Renowned for her “generous warmth of tone and a fluid virtuosity” (Charleston Gazette), Lindsey has performed solo and chamber concerts, taught masterclasses, and given presentations at countless series, festivals, and universities “with energy and artistry, conveying her exuberance and creativity” (Pittsburgh in the Round). Performances “played with conviction” (New York Times) have been heard across three continents, including at Carnegie Hall, Eastman School of Music, University of Cincinnati College–Conservatory of Music, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, Google headquarters, several National and Canadian Flute Association conventions, and across China.
A committed advocate for living composers and electroacoustic music, Lindsey “appears to know no fear in tackling the most demanding music” (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) and is an active commissioner of new works with over 140 world premieres to her credit. For over 18 seasons, she was solo flutist of the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble. Lindsey's debut solo album, reach through the sky, is available from New Dynamic Records, and her second solo release, available from PARMA Recordings, is returning to heights unseen, “an excellent album of compelling works expertly performed” (The Flute View). She can also be heard in solo, chamber, vocal, and orchestral performances on the New World, Albany, New Focus, and Navona labels, among others. Lindsey has given multiple professional recitals in New York City, performed concertos from Mozart to commissioned works in the United States and Canada, and been featured in live and recorded radio broadcasts on stations across the country.
Lindsey is principal flutist of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra and adjunct lecturer at West Virginia State University and Marietta College. She is a founding member of the Leviathan Trio (flute, cello, and piano), flute quartet PANdemonium4, and Chrysalis, a singing flutist and singing pianist duo, showcasing her training as a classical mezzo-soprano. A student of Walfrid Kujala and Robert Langevin, Lindsey received degrees from the Manhattan School of Music, Northwestern University, and Duquesne University. She resides in Ohio with her husband, percussionist, composer, and educator Chris Carmean, and their dog Jack. www.LindseyGoodman.com
