Flutist Lindsey Goodman Presents Ashland University Faculty Recital

9/30/13 ASHLAND, Ohio - Ashland University Department of Music will present a faculty recital by adjunct instructor of flute Lindsey Goodman on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 3 p.m. in the Elizabeth Pastor Recital Hall located down the hall from Hugo Young Theatre in the Center for the Arts. The concert is free and open to the public.

Featuring the world premiere of Judith Shatin’s Penelope’s Song for flute and electronics which was commissioned by and dedicated to Goodman, the recital is electroacoustic with electronics and acoustic flute playing hand-in-hand to create a chamber music experience with only one performer. Goodman has presented more than 15 of these performances in six states over the past five years.

A strong advocate for emerging composers and electroacoustic or multimedia works, Goodman is an active commissioner of new pieces and has given more than 55 world premieres, including 19 solo and chamber compositions written especially for her. 

An avid performer of new music, “flutist Lindsey Goodman appears to know no fear in tackling the most demanding music,” according to a review in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
