Please click here to download a program for the event. Ms. Smith is one of the most sought-after flutists in the country as an orchestral player, soloist, chamber musician, and teacher. The 2016-17 season is Ms. Smith’s 26th season as principal flutist of the Atlanta Symphony
Orchestra, where she holds the Jill Hertz Principal Flute chair, endowed in perpetuity. Ms. Smith’s flute solos can be heard on 37 ASO recordings. Equally passionate about teaching, Ms. Smith serves on the faculty at Kennesaw State University and Emory University and maintains a busy private studio. She remains highly in demand to teach masterclasses across the country. Ms. Smith plays a vintage solid platinum flute, handmade in 1938 by Verne Q. Powell. The flute was once owned by renowned flutist Joseph Mariano, and has a rare one-piece body. She is a Powell Artist, and we are so excited to have her this season!
