Flutist Roberta Michel recently won the Artists International Special Presentation Award and was presented in her debut recital at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall for which she was described in the New York Concert Review as a “solid craftsman” who “riveted with her performance, inspiring one to want a repeated hearing.” Michel has performed with groups including the Portland String Quartet, SEM Ensemble, Wet Ink Ensemble, Argento Chamber Ensemble, Lunatics at Large, Kagel Nacht, Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas, Cheyenne Symphony and the Greeley Philharmonic. She can be heard on New Dynamic, Innova, and Meta Records.
Dedicated to the advancement of new music, Michel has premiered numerous works. New York Concert Review praised her “extreme adventurousness,” and she is a founding member of The Cadillac Moon Ensemble, a quartet dedicated to commissioning and performing new works.
Michel holds a bachelor of music degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder, a master of music degree from SUNY-Purchase College, and is currently a doctoral candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center. Her teachers include Robert Dick, Tara Helen O’Connor and Alexa Still.
