ABOUT DR. CARMEN LEMOINE
Carmen Lemoine has dedicated herself to mastering the art of the flute. She holds positions with the Wichita, Santa Rosa, Marin and Santa Cruz symphonies, performs frequently with the Louisville Orchestra and recently appeared as guest principal flute with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra in New Zealand. Equally at home in small ensembles of contrasting styles, she has been a member of Ensemble Mik Nawooj, a hip-hop/classical fusion group recently featured in the Wall Street Journal, as well as Frequency 49, a Bay Area wind sextet she founded. She is also a regular performer at the annual conventions of the National Flute Association.
Beginning in the fall of 2016, Dr. Lemoine was appointed Assistant Professor of Flute at Wichita State University in Wichita Kansas. From 2010-2015, she introduced eager, young minds to the wonderful worlds of woodwind chamber music, musicianship and music theory at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
She just launched her latest project — the podcast Notes from the Audiophiles: Why Don’t I Like Classical Music? in July 2016. Co-hosted with her brilliant friend Pinky, each episode delivers digestible morsels of music history in an accessible, conversational style.
Dr. Lemoine earned degrees in flute performance from the Eastman School of Music (BM and DMA), where she studied with celebrated artist and teacher Bonita Boyd, and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (MM), studying with San Francisco Symphony principal flute Timothy Day.
