Newly appointed Second Flute of Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Emma Gerstein, will offer a recital and masterclass. Prior to this position, she was Section Principal Flute of the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra in New Zealand, a Fellow Flute in the New World Symphony, and Principal Flute in the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra. As a Chicago native, she was a member of the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra.

We are so fortunate to have her back in the Chicago area, and the CFC is especially excited to present a recital and masterclass with her. Please apply to play for Emma Gerstein.
