Mary Boodell is the Principal Flutist of the Richmond Symphony in Virginia. Praised as one of the city’s “most versatile and venturesome musicians,” she has won acclaim not only for her orchestral playing but also for her numerous chamber music performances. Equally at home in baroque and contemporary music, Ms. Boodell has performed at festivals across the US and Europe, including at the Los Angeles Hollywood Bowl, Eastern Music Festival, Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy, Wolf Trap, VA and regularly at the Staunton Music Festival. Since 2004, she has played baroque and modern flutes as a member of the Chamber Music Society of Central Virginia (www.cmscva.org), an organization dedicated to bringing world-class chamber music to Richmond. She received her Bachelor of Music at the Oberlin Conservatory and her Master of Music at Northwestern University, studying with some of the country’s most respected flutists.
